Lobos wrap up spring football

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – As the University of New Mexico Lobos wrapped up spring football practice Friday night, Head Coach Bob Davie had a smile on his face. He admitted the third spring under his leadership was the best.

This spring the Lobos had enough players to scrimmage often, giving Davie and his staff a good look at the team’s potential. It also allowed players to raise their level of competitiveness and intensity.

Most improved goes to the defense which appears to have developed teeth on the front line and a freshman newcomer is part of that mix.

When talking about his defense, Davie said this was the first spring that they won some battles.

Davie also said, “I think we started to show signs that we are coming out of this long funk on the New Mexico defense. I think about the new guys in the program. Garrett Hughes has made a big impact on this football team. Garrett Hughes is really a true freshman who enrolled early. He’s made his presence felt everyday on this field with his explosiveness.”

The Lobos will open the 2014 season at home, hosting the UTEP Miners August 30.
