Tough Summer Ends for Edwards and Gongbay

Both seniors have charges dropped and are headed to rejoin the Lobo football team in Ruidoso.

Lobo seniors and starters RB Crusoe Gongbay and CB SaQuan Edwards have both been reinstated by Coach Bob Davie and VP Paul Krebs.

Gongbay and Edwards (pictured to the left) were arrested in April on rape and kidnapping charges. In June the case had been dropped but left open to a possible refiling of charges, and today it has been reported that the DA will drop the case completely allowing Gonbay and Edwards to join the Lobo football team currently practicing in Ruidoso  

Gongbay along with Edwards and a third student maintained their innocence during the whole process and on Tuesday Gongbay fired off a tweet about his reinstatement. 

Ya Boy is back. They cant stop Gods work. Gota make up for lost time but it is still money season."

After missing all of the summer conditioning program along with half of this year's fall camp, it hasn't been discussed by Coach Bob Davie publicly where Gongbay and Edwards will start as far as the depth chart is concerned.
