  UNM sophomore standout tight end Trace Bruckler is out for the season after dislocating his right shoulder against LSU on Sept. 24. Bruckler missed UNM's game against UNLV and will have surgery this week, Gonzales said. Bruckler, who led the Lobos with three touchdown receptions last year, tore his left labrum in March when New Mexico ended its spring session, Gonzales said. Bruckler built up enough strength that he was able to forgo surgery and play the first four games, Gonzales said. But Bruckler was not at his best because of the left shoulder pain. He'll have surgery on his left shoulder this week and about a month later will have surgery on his right shoulder, Gonzales said. - Albuquerque Journal

  Trae Hall's biggest play as a wide receiver for the University of New Mexico came on his final snap of the season last year against UNLV. It was a sensational 21-yard reception that featured a broken tackle - but included, unfortunately, a broken left ankle in the first quarter of a 31-17 home loss to the Rebels on Nov. 6. Shortly after the season-ending injury, Hall attempted to hop on one leg off the field. He remembered how coach Danny Gonzales has told players to do their best to always come off the field without assistance.

Fast forward to now. Hall has regained his speed, the ability to cut and has shown he'll be able to contribute consistently among a deep group of wide receivers. "Overall the healing process, it was a success," said Hall, who was idle for six months during this offseason. "I just want to thank the trainers and doctors, and for the players and coaches motivating me to still be here, Coach G keeping me here." Coach Danny Gonzales has been impressed with Hall's determination. "If you would've seen him in May compared to now you wouldn't believe it's the same guy or the same injury," Gonzales said. "In May he was limping like it was a week old...He's further than we've expected right now. He's done some really good things. I'm happy with his progress and where's he's at." - Las Cruces Sun News

  Shortly after safeties Jerrick Reed II and Tavian Combs were told that they were the University of New Mexico's top tacklers during a media interview, Reed immediately offered a correction. "Stop," Reed said in a playful tone. "I was the top tackler." Reed recorded 89 total tackles, 54 unassisted after playing every game for the 3-9 Lobos. Combs, in his second year, finished with 81 total tackles, 40 unassisted. He played in 11 of 12 games. The two safeties know they will be expected to make just as many tackles this season, which began with practices on Friday and Saturday. To prepare for the role, Combs added 20 pounds of muscle during the offseason. "It's the standard," Reed said of the safeties making tackles in Rocky Long's 3-3-5 defense. "People look at you to be that guy, you have to be that guy. You can't slack off because everybody will notice. Every day you gotta come in and work hard. Have the right mind-set, film study, eat right, take care of your body so that you can stay on top of your game and be that guy when your play is called."

Reed, a preseason All-Mountain West Conference pick for the second straight season, arrived at UNM in 2019, when the Lobos struggled mightily against the pass, the deep ball especially. The Lobos allowed 321.4 yards passing yards per game and ranked 130th and last in the Football Bowl Subdivision. But in 2021, UNM allowed 219.8 passing yards per game to rank 54th, its best passing defense since 2010 when the unit was ranked 53rd at 218.8 yards per game. "It's been night and day for sure," Reed said. "It was bad then, it's good now and we're gonna be better when the season comes." - Albuquerque Journal

  2022 PRESEASON PAUL HORNUNG AWARD WATCH LIST: Luke Wysong, New Mexico,...Wysong led the Lobos and all Mountain West freshmen in 2021 in receiving yards, catches, kickoff returns and punt returns, and could very well lead the way in 2022 as well. Wysong added around 15 pounds of muscle in the off-season and is still one of the fastest players in the league, starring in the 60-yard dash at the Mountain West Indoor Championships. - New Mexico Football

  For the first time in five years the University of New Mexico football team has at least two players on the preseason all-Mountain West team. Senior safety Jerrick Reed II and punter Aaron Rodriguez were both named to the 27-player team. The 2017 Lobos had three players named all-MWC. Fresno State quarterback Jake Haener is the preseason offensive player of the year. The pick for the defense is shared by San Jose State defensive lineman Cade Hall and San Diego State defensive back Patrick McMorris. - Santa Fe New Mexican

  2021 ALL-MOUNTAIN WEST HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): Luke Wysong, PR,...Wysong was one of just two freshmen to be named to Honorable Mention squad, joining Kekaula Kaniho of Boise State. Wysong was the league's top freshman in terms of receptions, receiving yards, receiving yards per game, all-purpose yardage, punt returns and kickoff returns, and despite being a receiver, he was second among all freshmen behind his own teammate Aaron Dumas. He returned a punt 63 yards for a touchdown against Colorado State and averaged 11.0 yards per punt return, leading a punt return unit to 21st in the country, despite having seven true freshmen starting on that unit for most of the season. He is the first true freshman to lead UNM in all-purpose yardage since 2011. - New Mexico Football
