David Anaya is ready for his senior season

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – David Anaya was a standout athlete at Goddard High School in Roswell. He left the program as the 2nd leading rusher in New Mexico High School History.

He chose to go to UNM and walk on to the football team.

“My mentality is toughness, be strong about it, do your job and you know I just love to get out there and play. Football has always been a part of my life. Besides family and God, it’s always been football”, said David Anaya.

David played in 25 games his freshman and sophomore year and that led to the 5-foot-9 running back’s scholarship offer his junior year.

“You know I have lived in Roswell my whole life and coming up here I always wanted to be a Lobo. Getting to wear my number 25 since high school, you know. My parents are proud of me, earning my scholarship, and I am playing at the highest level especially here in New Mexico, my home state”, said Anaya.

Last season Anaya played in 12 games for the Lobos and he was the only player to catch a touchdown pass, run in a touchdown and even throw a touchdown pass.

He is a tough and gritty type of player and coach Davie thinks very highly of this Roswell native.

“We have some flashy guys and we have brought in some more flashy guys, but at the end of the day when it comes down to when it really matters. David Anaya will continue to have a very key role,” said Head Coach Bob Davie.

Anaya and the Lobos start out their season at home on September 5th against Mississippi Valley State. Kick off will be 6:00 p.m.
