There were explosions on both sides of the football Sunday afternoon in New Mexico’s full-contact — minus quarterbacks — scrimmage held at Ruidoso Middle School.There also was a well-deserved eruption from the Lobos’ silver jerseys (defense) at the end of the scrimmage thanks to a scoreboard that read 54-44 in the defense’s favor.
A couple of Lobo defenders raced over and threw their arms around Kevin Cosgrove, UNM’s defensive coordinator, prior to the defense and the offense gathering for some final words from head coach Bob Davie.
“It (the win) feels pretty good especially coming off last year,” said sophomore linebacker Donnie White, who helped put points on the defensive side of the scoreboard with a fumble recovery. “We were just trying to make a statement. I think I’m 100 times better (this season), just knowing the defense. This year I can just hit it running. I’m more comfortable now.”
The Lobo defense definitely did a good job knocking the football to the ground and also added points to the scoreboard with some big stops.
But the Lobo offense had some big moments, too.
David Anaya, a 5-foot-9 running back out of Roswell Goddard, got open deep to put some points on the board for the offense.
