By nature, Dominic Camacho is not an attention seeker.
His right leg, however, has painted him into a corner.
The humble La Cueva High School senior on Friday night kicked his way to the top of a very significant list, as his 29th career field goal with the Bears placed him at No. 1 all-time in New Mexico.
“I’m happy that I finally got it out of the way,” Camacho, 17, said Saturday, a night after his 18-yarder on the final play of the first half gave him the solo record. “And, that I get to hold the record. Honestly, it’s great.”
