Lobos Football announce a class of 21

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Lobos head football coach Bob Davie addressed some needs with his latest class of recruits.

One of the biggest concerns for Davie and his staff when they hit the recruiting trail was offensive line. Davie added big and tall linemen to put beef in the trenches.

The Lobos also won a few head to head battles with teams from the power five conferences on some recruits.

One of those is local product Teton Saltes of Valley High School. The 6-foot-6-inch, 250 pound Saltes will play linebacker and defensive end for the Lobos. But football hasn’t always been his first sport of choice.

“You know my family is a basketball family,” said Saltes. “I am the first football player but, you know, change is always good.”

Coach Davie feels good about Saltes’ future in the game.

“He’s a guy that has a tremendous upside,” said Davie.

Saltes said he wanted to be a part of a program on the rise.

He had offers from Iowa, Cal, Washington and many others. Cleveland High quarterback Gabe Ortega is with the Lobos as a safety. His high school teammate Marcus Williams will play receiver. Las Cruces quarterback Kameron Miller is the fourth in state product in the Lobos class of 21.
