Good luck to the MWC invitees headed to the NFL combine
The NFL analysis and profile on each of our Mountain West guys:
Spring road trips for a series of away games has its natural challenges from keeping up with school work and missing classes; flying regular-scheduled commercial coach-class instead of charters, and still practicing and preparing for games, but what an experience for a student-athlete. In this case, the New Mexico State Lobos.
Though he was on the inactive list for the Patriots at the Super Bowl, Jacob Hollister had a first-season NFL experience of a lifetime. With Gronk in supposed limbo, maybe Jacob moves further up the depth charts next season among the other handful of Patriot TEs.
Richard Sanchez from nearby St. Augustine high school in San Diego goes from high school head coach to the new San Diego State defensive back coach. Sanchez should get a good trial-by-fire in the Aztecs first game of the 2018 season when they visit the Stanford Cardinals
The Rainbow Warriors had their trials and tribulations last season on and off the field. Their incoming recruiting class expects to make up for the personnel losses and Coach Rolovich has rounded out his remaining assistants to complete his staff. But challenges remain for Coach Rolovich to try to revive Hawaii football back to the excitement of ol’ Coach JJ’s run & shoot days.
