Lobo football wraps up spring with their Showcase

KRQE NM Sports Feed - April 22, 2017 - 11:08pm

 

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE)- It was a perfect day for football on Saturday morning. The Lobos held their final spring practice at University Stadium and it was open to the fans, showcasing their skills on the gridiron. The fans in attendance seemed to be enjoying the display of UNM’s drills.

No one likes to see spring come to an end, but especially the seniors on this UNM roster. “Man I am telling you this is my last spring and it’s kind of hard to say. It seems like everything happened so fast, I just got here. Everything I do I just do it to the fullest man, because I just look at it like I won’t have this chance again”, said UNM RB Richard McQuarley.

The running game was of course on display, but so was the pass game. UNM has definitely spread things out more and have taken to the air. “Our receiving core as a whole has been outstanding, and has continued to get better, and our quarterbacks can throw the ball, that’s the 2 things you take away from this spring”, said UNM Head Football Coach Bob Davie.

“The fact that we did what we did on the ground with 8 people 9 people in the box is ridiculous. Now that we have this passing game, with the weapons that we have got I feel that no one in the country can hold what our offense is capable of”, said UNM QB Lamar Jordan.

Fall Camp will be next for Lobo football and the fans to come out and watch. UNM will have their first game of the season on September 2nd taking on Abilene Christian.

The Rothschillers: The identical UNM safeties

KRQE NM Sports Feed - April 21, 2017 - 10:18pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)- Jake and Kyle Rothschiller are identical twins that both play in the secondary for the Lobo football team. Jake, the younger brother by 45 minutes, has been at UNM for two seasons. He even garnered good playing time last season, as the now senior racked up 27 tackles.

Jake convinced his brother to come to UNM, as he was playing at Nevada.

“He got me here, I just wanted to follow in his footsteps and be with him one more time,” said UNM Safety Kyle Rothschiller.

“Yeah, I wanted him out here just because it’s fun to play with family. It’s always fun to play with family obviously. We have been split up for two years, and it’s just great to have him,” said UNM Safety Jake Rothschiller.

The two are only 5’7 but they pack a major punch. They play with a chip on their shoulder and a smart football mind. Their abilities have started to gain some good attention.

“Yeah they are physical, but a key thing is that most guys you know that are small get overlooked and sometimes those are actually your best players,” said UNM Safety Coach Charles McMillian.

“We have created a package to have both of them on the field, because they are very technique sound in what we are asking them to do,” McMillian added.

UNM will have their spring showcase on Saturday at University Stadium. The gates will open at 10:30 a.m. and the players will also be holding a youth clinic immediately after the practice is over.

Community wants answers after popular basketball coach let go

KRQE NM Sports Feed - April 21, 2017 - 5:44pm

SANTA ROSA, N.M. (KRQE)- “The whole town is just really shocked,” said Keith Ross.

Santa Rosa’s newspaper headline confirmed the rumors that have swirled around town.

“Looking for answers, no one really knows what’s going on or why they’d let him go,” said Ross.

Coach Joe Esquibel, who everyone at Santa Rosa High, calls “Coach Eska,” is no longer the head basketball coach.

He’s taken the team to the state tournament five years in a row — including a loss in the championship game at The Pit just last month.

“And the reason they gave was just a different direction,” said  Angelo Romo.

But the principal of the school refuses to say what was wrong with the old direction, and a coach loved by so many players and fans.

“He’s a great educator, he’s a great role model, I don’t see how they could find anybody better,” said Romo.

Angelo Romo’s son plays on the team, and said he’s devastated.

“He was in tears when he found this out at a mid school track meet that he was helping with, he just broke up in tears,” he said.

Coach Eska’s family, friends and supporters have made signs and t-shirts to show their concern.

“I’ve worked with Joe probably 14, 15 years in different sports, football and basketball, and I’ve never seen him do anything inappropriate, I’ve always seen him put the kids first,” said Assistant Varsity Coach David Chavez.

He said the school isn’t explaining much.

“I have my thoughts and you know, I won’t share those at this point, but I believe it’s for the wrong reasons, for them to let him go and not really have anything that justifies them letting him go has been very upsetting to me,” he said.

Esquibel is keeping his job as a history teacher at the school, but other than saying they’re moving in another direction, the principal said there’s no further comment.

Mark Ronchetti’s 2017 Draft Predictions

KRQE NM Sports Feed - April 21, 2017 - 3:52pm

The 2017 NFL draft will present an interesting decision for the Cowboys. They clearly need help on defense. Most urgently at cornerback and defensive end. However, what if an offensive player drops and is clearly higher rated on their draft board? The old best player versus best player at a position of need debate. The best teams in the league tend to go best player and the Cowboys have followed this trend recently. With this in mind here is a look at five possible picks for the Cowboys in the first two rounds.

Round 1 Picks:
  1. Takk McKinley/DE UCLA: Based purely on talent McKinley should not be there when the Cowboys pick at 28 but his recent shoulder surgery makes push him down. He’s a long-armed athlete with more than enough speed and bend to capture the corner and cause major problems for opposing quarterbacks. However, the Cowboys have too often in the past few years taken “redshirt” players who need time to get healthy before contributing (see Jaylon Smith). Can they really afford to do this again?
  2. Charles Harris/DE Missouri: Harris is another quick twitch athlete that relies on speed to create havoc. At 6’ 3” he’s a little taller than McKinley. Oh yeah, and he’s healthy.
  3. Kevin King/CB Washington: King may well be the best confluence of need and talent on the board when the Cowboys pick. He’s tall and lean with solid cover skills. He could be scooped up before #28 but if he’s not King would be a great choice.
  4. TJ Watt/DE Wisconsin: Obviously everyone knows TJ’s brother but can Watt 2.0 compare to the original? Probably not but he doesn’t have to. Watt is a technician when it comes to pass rush skills and his long lean frame can be bulked in an NFL conditioning program. One other interesting point about Watt, he’s only played DE for one year. He has much more to learn making what he already demonstrates all the more impressive.
  5. Gareon Conley/CB Ohio State: At 6’ and 195 pounds Conley has the size the Cowboys covet. He’s a good CB when it comes to outside coverage but questions surround change of direction and hip tightness.
  6. Corey Davis/WR Western Michigan: I threw Davis in to illustrate my offensive versus defensive point. Davis most likely will be long gone by pick 28. But thanks to ankle issues it’s not completely out of the question that he could be sitting there when Dallas picks. If he is it would be very tempting. Davis is big, fast and a great route runner. If Davis is on the board at 28 he would undoubtedly be their highest ranked player, but not a big need.
Round 2 Picks:
  1. Fabian Moreau/CB UCLA: Another injury guy. A torn pec muscle could well push him down to round two. Moreau is a big CB with a solid frame and great speed. He would be a great selection in round 2.
  2. Cordrea Tankersley/CB Clemson: Tankersley has the size and athleticism to be successful in the NFL. While he may lack top end speed if he can become more disciplined he could be a good addition.
  3. Teez Tabor/CB Florida: Tabor was thought of as a first-round pick when the draft started. So why might he be there at pick 60? Speed is the reason. Tabor appears to be accountant slow in the 40. He ran a 4.61 at the combine and followed that beauty up with a 4.77 at his pro day. Horrible numbers for an NFL cornerback. However, Tabor’s tape is pretty good. Always trust the tape first right? Well maybe….

Van Tate’s 2017 Draft predictions for the Dallas Cowboys

KRQE NM Sports Feed - April 21, 2017 - 3:37pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Dallas Cowboys had one of the better drafts of 2016. What can they do for an encore in 2017? If they are to address needs, then you would expect the defensive side of the football to get help. The Cowboys need playmakers on the defensive line and secondary. They have the 28th pick of the first round.

That pick will probably dictate the rest of the draft for the Cowboys. Do they go with a tough pass rusher like Michigan defensive end Taco Charlton or do they take someone in the secondary like Michigan’s Jabrill Peppers. The big question is whether either of those players will be around by the 28th pick. Regardless, it seems as if the Cowboys will go heavy on defensive picks. Here is my mock draft for the Cowboys.

First Round, 28th pick: Takkarist McKinley – DE UCLA

McKinley is a high motor guy who is only 6 foot 2 and tough. He had 10 sacks and three forced fumbles for the Bruins this past season. McKinley had shoulder surgery after the NFL combine to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Not sure if that will make some teams shy away. McKinley has visited the Cowboys and it sounds like he wants to be there as a player.

Second Round, 66th pick: Jalen “Teez” Tabor – CB Florida

Tabor had 33 tackles and four interceptions last season. He also had six passes broken up. His instincts to the ball are really good and could serve him well in Dallas. He did have an off the field incident that led to him missing the season opener for Florida last season. Hopefully, it is a one-time thing.

Third Round, 92nd pick: Ethan Pocic – G/C LSU

At 6 feet and 5 inches, Pocic is tall for a center. That is a selling point because of the size of some of the defensive personnel he will have to face in the NFL. His abilities in pass coverage have been pointed out as a strength. He would fit in nicely with the young and lethal offensive line of the Cowboys.

Fourth Round, 133rd pick: Donnell Pumphrey – RB SDSU

Donnell Pumphrey is the new NCAA Division 1 all-time leading rusher. At 5 foot 9, he is not the biggest guy on the field but, plays that way. He could be a good lightning to Ezekiel Elliott’s thunder. He could also help on special teams, returning kicks or punts. Pumphrey has never had a problem producing.

Sixth Round, 211th pick: Davon Godchaux – DT LSU

Godchaux comes with life skills, having made it through a really tough upbringing. The football field is like a sanctuary when you live a life like the one he has endured. Godchaux has decent speed as an interior defensive lineman but, he also is tested when trying to fight off double teams. He could be a good tough defensive lineman for the Cowboys.

Seventh Round, 228th pick: Fred Ross – WR Mississippi State

Ross was a favorite target of Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott in college. He has that working for him. The six foot two 205 pound Ross had 934 yards last season and a dozen touchdowns. Dak to Ross worked in college maybe it will work again in the National Football League.

Seventh Round 246th pick: Elijah Lee – LB Kansas State

Lee is an all big 12 linebacker who seems to have a knack for finding the football. Might work out well as a late pick for the Cowboys.
