Lobo football finishes spring; now it’s time to get stronger

Sophomore tight end Trace Bruckler, the University of New Mexico’s versatile threat, got a step ahead of his defender as he ran free across the middle.

All he needed was the ball, but redshirt freshman quarterback CJ Montes overthrew him by a matter of inches. Otherwise Bruckler probably would have taken the catch to the house Saturday at UNM’s Cherry & Silver scrimmage at University Stadium to end its spring football session.

Would-be TD plays like these were sorely needed to be executed during the Lobos’ 3-9 2021 season, and will be needed if they are to transform from underdog to contender in the fall.
