SCOUT­ING THE LO­BOS

Albuquerque Journal - - HIGH SCHOOLS -

A year ago, the Lo­bos ended the sea­son with a seven-game los­ing streak.

This year, ob­vi­ously, they want to avoid that type of fin­ish, but they are amid a four-game skid. They will look for in help in an­other strong per­for­mance from their de­fense. Last week, the UNM de­fense stepped up with three turnovers de­spite miss­ing starters, linebacker Eva­h­elotu Tohi (sus­pen­sion) and safety Mar­cus Hayes (con­cus­sion symp­toms). To­day, Tohi re­mains on sus­pen­sion while Hayes re­turns. But Hayes, who also re­turns punts, will not start, coach Bob Davie said. Davie wants Stan­ley

Barn­well Jr. to team up with Bi­jon Parker as the safeties to de­fend Air Force’s triple-op­tion. On of­fense, the Lo­bos want to start se­nior Coltin Ger­hart at quar­ter­back, but he is bat­tling pain in his foot, as he sprained it in the sea­son opener, and last week had a set­back in his first game back.
