“I mean excitement is short to what it says, you know what I mean,” said goalie Hector Castaneda. “Exciting is what we can do for the community and not just the community but the roadrunner food bank itself. That’s what we look for and that’s what we do with the New Mexico runners, that’s what this team is.”
