Albuquerque’s Eastdale beats Carlsbad Shorthorn Little League 5-0

KRQE NM Sports Feed - July 24, 2017 - 10:20pm

RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – It’s a battle between New Mexico Little League powerhouses Monday night as Albuquerque’s Eastdale Little League All-Stars face Carlsbad Shorthorn Little League.

A little rain and lightning didn’t stop the crowd at Cibola Field from matching the hype here on the ball diamond and the way these teams have played and their history shouldn’t surprise anyone.

Eastdale is the reigning major state champion from 2016 and also won the title in 2014, but Shorthorn definitely has a strong history of its own. The majority of their players go on to play for Carlsbad High School, which has had a total of 13 players drafted to play in the Major League farm system, and the fans truly back that history up.

“If we win, we go to Waco. And we want to go to Waco,” Bob Armijo, Eastdale fan, said.

“We’ve had our local radio station here all weekend, so our fans at home who couldn’t make the trip can listen from home,” Danielle Estrada, Carlsbad fan, said.

Eastdale pulled off the win Monday night by shutting out Shorthorn 5-0. They now get the opportunity to represent New Mexico in the Southwest Regional Tournament next month in Waco, Texas.

NMSU Football wants to make noise in final Sun Belt year

KRQE NM Sports Feed - July 24, 2017 - 9:42pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – For the New Mexico State Aggies it is a Sun Belt Media Day unlike the ones in the past. The Aggies are making the rounds for a final time, getting ready to go Independent after one final season under the sun.

“We certainly would like to make some noise going out and set ourselves up for our future,” said NMSU Head Football Coach Doug Martin. “We need to attract the attention of other conferences, moving into the independent schedule. Like I said, we need some momentum doing that. Winning through the Sun Belt would make a great statement.”

Martin believes he has the team to make that noise.

“This is the team we’ve been pointing to for the last four years,” said Martin. “We knew it was going to take us four recruiting classes to get the scholarship numbers and the talent level where we needed it to be. That is this year.”

The Aggies have been picked to finish 10th in the conference in the Sun Belt Preseason Football Poll. Sun Belt Media Day is being held in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Aggies will start the season on the road at Arizona State August 31.

KRQE NM Sports Feed - July 24, 2017 - 9:06pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The rosters are stacked for a game that will bring the best high school football seniors in the state together on one field. The Class 5A/6A All Star Football game will play out at Nusenda Community Stadium Tuesday.

“Having the best of the best, being able to play with them,” said Del Norte running back Avery See. “The game is so much faster, way faster than normal.”

See will play for the Eastern New Mexico Greyhounds this upcoming season. Joining him on the North for Tuesday’s game will be former Volcano Vista quarterback Dillon Gassoway.

“I’m super excited. I can’t for Tuesday night. It’s going to be fun,” said Gassoway.

Gassoway, like See, has a place to play his college ball. He will play at New Mexico Highlands in the fall.

Running back and Gatorade New Mexico Player of the Year, Josh Foley is also a member of the North squad.

Foley will play for the New Mexico State Aggies this upcoming season and has already been working out with the team.

“I’ve gained about ten pounds already and I feel like I’ve gotten faster,” said Foley.  “So I’m excited to see what I can do Tuesday night.”

The North held practice Monday morning, so did the South. The South wrapped up before KRQE Sports arrived. The Class 5A/6A All Star Football Game is Tuesday night at 7 p.m. at Nusenda Community Stadium.

What was uncertain is a sure thing for Dak Prescott as Cowboys’ Camp begins

KRQE NM Sports Feed - July 24, 2017 - 8:57pm

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – What a difference a year makes. Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was just trying to get the third string job under center last season. This year, he started camp as the no-doubt-about-it number one.

“To me it’s about what I put on myself. I think I put more pressure and higher expectations on myself than anyone else has,” said Prescott. “I know within this organization we have high expectations as a team as well. I don’t think me or any of these guys pay any attention to outside of our locker room. We know what we have to do. We know what it’s going to take, what we expect from each other.”

The Cowboys are coming off a 13-3 year. Babe Lafenberg of the Silver Star Nation has more from Oxnard, California.

Tony Snell pays UNM Basketball team a visit on Saturday

KRQE NM Sports Feed - July 23, 2017 - 9:02am

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE)- Former Lobo stand out and now Milwaukee Buck, Tony Snell was in town on Saturday afternoon and took time to talk with the UNM Basketball team. “You know I am here to support this new team, I am here to motivate them for next season. Get them ready for next season”, said Tony Snell.

Snell was happy to be back in Albuquerque, and believes that once you are a Lobo you are always a Lobo. He had the chance to tour his old stomping grounds and in the process gave this next year’s Lobo Basketball team some good advice. “It’s about the same (Playing at UNM), you know the fan base here is just like the NBA. You know, like NBA type fans, and they are there to support you through the good and the bad. So, it definitely helped me a lot”, said Snell.

Snell just recently re-upped his deal with Milwaukee. Snell signed a 4-year 46 million dollar contract. “It feels so good to be wanted. So, I am very happy to be there and the organization supports me very well and I am very grateful for that. I’m just going to play as hard as I can to get that championship”, said Snell. Snell was traded to the Bucks in 2016 and really likes playing for the team, especially with a coach like Jason Kidd helping Tony along the way. “Honestly I think he could still play in this league, just his IQ and he is a hall of famer. So, I love to play for him. We understand each other and we all want the same goal so it all worked out”, said Snell.

Tony has solidified himself as a great teammate and a defensive threat in the NBA, but now heading into his 5th season Snell is now taking on a new role as a leader to the younger players. “I love it. I am just trying to embrace my role and I am very happy for it”, said Tony Snell.

Snell was only in town for one day and says he is back on that workout grind. He may be in the NBA now, but Snell will never forget where he came from. “A lot of memories, a lot of great memories. A lot of up and down memories, but definitely good memories. Just the journey, just the experience of that whole journey from day1 until the end”, said Snell.
