First-team defense dominates at UNM football practice

University of New Mexico coach Danny Gonzales calls sophomore Cody Moon “the quintessential New Mexico kid,” a type of player who comes to the Lobos as a walk-on.

Moon, a Volcano Vista graduate, might as well be the quintessential player for the UNM defense: attacking the opportunity, never content and playing with something to prove – or as the Lobos say, “with bad humor.”

The UNM defense made several highlights on Saturday afternoon, during an instrasquad scrimmage in University Stadium, but Moon and Gonzales both said: “We’ve got a long way to go.”

Moon had no offers out of high school.
