Just before fall camp Gill, who was an assistant at Whittier college, was hired as a graduate assistant for offense at New Mexico State. With Saturday’s game between the rival schools fast approaching, the trash talk has already begun with brother Torry critiquing the Lobos’ first game. Family members plan to attend the game in Albuquerque. It is the opinion of the mother that matters most to Jerrick and Torry.
“I literally called her yesterday and I said mom who are you going for me or him? She didn’t say anything,” said Reed.” She was like, you know that y’all both my sons so I’m going for both of y’all. But, she said she’s going for me because we’re the better team. She did say that. I got that on document.”
In other sports news, Lobos quarterback Terry Wilson is ready to get his first taste of the Rio Grande rivalry. The University of Kentucky transfer has a couple of things in common with NMSU head coach Doug Martin. Both played at Kentucky at the quarterback position. Martin is well aware of Wilson’s talent. “He’s a definite upgrade,” said Martin. “He makes them more diverse, you know because he can run too. He’s a real weapon. They’re going to be a tough challenge.”
