Lobos center Toye Adewon playing days are over

Toye Adewon

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Lobos redshirt sophomore center Toye Adewon is done playing football at New Mexico. Adewon has been advised not to play after being diagnosed with spinal stenosis. The six-foot-three, 312-pound Adewon was a wall in the middle of the line and coaches were excited about his play in the spring and could not wait to see what Adewon would do during the regular season.

When speaking about the huge offensive lineman head coach Bob Davie said, “Obviously it’s devastating to Toye, his family. He made a tremendous investment in this program. It also hurts us and that goes without saying but, it pales in comparison on how it affects the young man.”

Lobo offensive tackle Johnny Vizciano has also shut down play due to concussions. Linebacker Richard Winston is another player Davie announced as no longer playing football for the Lobos Tuesday. Winston also cited concussions as his reason for stepping away. All three players will be allowed to continue their education on a medical scholarship.
