Lobos quarterback Tevaka Tuioti returned to practice from concussion protocol Monday. Tuioti said he was a little rusty and noticed his timing was a little off. Whether or not the he will resume as the starter has yet to be determined.
“You can tell he hasn’t been out here in awhile,” said Davie. “I think it will depend on how he practices this week you know. I’m not saying that for effect. I’m saying that for honesty you know.”
The Lobos had an open week and third string quarterback, Sheriron Jones, who started in a win at New Mexico State, made the most of an extra week taking number one reps.
“You know Sheriron has shown a lot of improvement,” said Davie. “I mean the advantage Tevaka has, he’s done it in the game more, but again I don’t minimize the improvements Sheriron made so it’s a good situation to be in right now.”
Tuioti welcomes the competition with his teammate as he tries to solidify the number one spot once again.
“You know I feel a hundred percent right now,” said Tuioti. “The coaches, they want to see us go at it again to see if I can earn the spot back. So, you know, whatever they want for us to win the game Saturday.”
The Lobos and Liberty have a 4 p.m. start time Saturday.
