Midway through preparations for his team’s season-opener, New Mexico State football coach Doug Martin likes what he sees.
The Aggies have two weeks of fall camp behind them and will switch to a normal regular-season practice schedule Wednesday when classes begin. This week NMSU will turn its full attention to week-one opponent Washington State, but when asked to grade his team’s first two weeks of preparation, Martin handed out an A.
“I don’t think things could have gone much better,” Martin said. “We hit on the guys we recruited and brought in and we’re much more athletic on defense. So far I’m really encouraged.”
