  01/18/21 - Joey NoblerSr/2022, New Mexico, 6-2, 236 (DS#94 OLB) + More +

  Fourteen seniors, nine on defense led by end Joey Noble, are returning on scholarship to play for the University of New Mexico football team, coach Danny Gonzales announced via Twitter on Saturday morning. Those staying with the Lobos are defensive backs Patrick Peek, Shaddrick Lowery, Tony Collier and Corey Hightower; defensive linemen Noble, Ben Gansallo and Adam Gay; linebackers Reco Hannah and Devin Sanders; offensive linemen Kyle Stapley, Austin Cook and Ben Davis; tight end Kyle Jarvis; and wide receiver Emmanuel Logan-Greene. The coronavirus-delayed and shortened 2020 season did not count against a player's eligibility. Last year, before the season, Gonzales told the UNM seniors that none would be guaranteed a scholarship in 2021 due to the Lobos' cap of 85 scholarships. - Albuquerque Journal
