In Tuesday’s edition of the Sports Desk, former Lobo cornerback D’Angelo Ross talks about his hopes of playing professional football.
“I know I had a private workout with the Chargers,” said Ross. “That was a great opportunity. I know they’re interested and the teams that were at the Pro Day they’re interested as well so. Wherever I go, I’m just going to go and compete.”
With the NFL Draft approaching Ross believes anything can happen, but he thinks he will more than likely be an undrafted free agent. That’s fine with him. He just wants a shot.
Also on the Sports Desk, Javon Mosley is a UNM offensive lineman that has NFL potential. Coaches think the junior college transfer will have a breakout year in his senior season of 2019.
“Javon has a ton of potential,” said Lobos offensive line coach Saga Tuitele. “We have had some scouts come here and they were just in awe. Just seeing how big he was and how well he could move.”
Meanwhile, former UNM Lobo Kent Jones is currently playing on the Champions Tour. From the PGA and all tours in between, if there is a golf tour out there, more than likely Jones has played in it.
“It’s much more stress-free,” said Jones. “Everyone’s happier out there, friendlier. So, some guys that wouldn’t even talk to you on the regular tour, they’re your good buddies on the Champions Tour. Everyone’s a lot friendlier. The thing is, it’s three rounds. There’s no cut.”
Finally, the Lobo track and field team has its highest ranking ever by the USTFCCCA. The Lobos are ranked ninth. Sophomore Weini Kelati is the Mountain West Track and Field Athlete of the Week for the third time. Kelati won the honor twice during the indoor season. Kelati currently has the fastest time in NCAA competition in the 5000 meters.
