Lobo football: Gonzales encouraged by team’s gains in strength

When it comes to weight training and preparing for the college football season, University of New Mexico coach Danny Gonzales believes strongly in challenging his players and even “making them as uncomfortable as we can.”

Here is why: “There are going to be several times during the season when they are in uncomfortable situations whether it’s a fourth-and-1 or we have to score when the game is on the line. As uncomfortable as we can make them with physical challenges in the weight room and pushing them to do things that they don’t think they can do, that only gives them a better chance to be successful in those situations on game day.
