Ryan Cosper had plans on a smaller scale after a stellar high school football senior season at Hope Christian that ended with the program’s first state title (3A) in its 10-year existence.
Cosper, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound wide receiver, was thinking to play for a junior college or an NCAA Division II program. But a dream scenario came when the University of New Mexico extended a preferred walk-on offer.
Cosper is one of at least seven New Mexico-grown players who have received PWO offers from UNM. Cosper, who led Hope with 63 catches for 1,094 yards and 11 touchdowns, said he will play for UNM because it’s always been a dream of his to suit up for the Lobos and he is grateful for the opportunity.
