Five Walk-Ons, Three from ABQ, Earn Scholarships

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. --- For five Lobos, Thursday morning's football meetings went from instructional to life-altering. Five Lobos, including three New Mexico natives, were awarded scholarships by head coach Bob Davie in a surprise announcement during Thursday meetings, bringing cheers from their teammates, and kicking off a big summer of workouts as the team readies for the 2019 season opener on August 31.

The five Lobos earning scholarships were Bobby Cole (a redshirt running back from Chatsworth, California), Andrew Erickson (a redshirt freshman receiver from Albuquerque's Manzano High School), Micah Gray (a redshirt sophomore running back from Clovis High School), Hayden Wilson (a redshirt sophomore offensive lineman from Rio Rancho's Cleveland High School) and Nic Wilson (a redshirt freshman cornerback from San Bernardino, California).
