ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) –  Dorian Lewis has played his last game for the UNM Lobos this year. The talented running back is out for the season after breaking his foot in a game at Wyoming last week.

“We’ll miss him,” said UNM Head Coach Danny Gonzales. “He’s a special football player. He’ll have surgery on his foot here in the coming week, and he’ll be back next year. He was a big part of our offense. That room is deep. Thank God.”

Lewis still has a COVID year remaining and will be back on the field next season.
