The All-Air Force men’s and women’s softball coaches have extended to the end of this week the deadline to submit a resume application to the respective tryout camps.

The deadline originally was June 21, but coaches Steve Shortland and Bill Hardy still had slots to fill as of Tuesday.

The men’s camp is scheduled for Aug. 17-Sept. 5 at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla.; the women’s, Aug. 25-Sept. 12 at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo.

As of Tuesday, 25 men and 22 women had applied. Hardy is hoping for 31 players, and Shortland seeks a maximum of 33.

“Right now, if you put in your résumé, you’re coming to camp,” Hardy said by phone from Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Miss. “That’s what it’s come to. I have to have 31. Then I’m good to go.”

So far, five Pacific Air Forces players have been selected to the teams, three from Kadena Air Base — Carlo Aguon and Joey Chastain for the men and returning All-Air Force women’s shortstop Peni Nery.

JoJo Dancer of Osan Air Base in Korea and returning All-American Jamie Thompson of Misawa Air Base in Japan also have been picked to attend the women’s camp.

Interested players may contact their respective base fitness centers or contact Steve Brown at Air Force Sports at (210) 652-3471.
