NMVarsity.com 's Top 2005 Seniors

The NMVarsity.com names their top 32 New Mexico football players.

NMVarsity's postseason top 32 seniors in the state( keep in mind this is just for fun; however also keep in mind that this list was compiled with input from the states coaches and other advisors who follow prep football very closely):



1.) Mike Love RB (Rio Rancho)-will play for UNM next year and should compete for playing time early in his career. Very complete player and a gamebreaker.



2.) Bayard Roberts DE (St. Pius X)-will play OLB for Navy next year and should compete for playing time. Still a little raw, but has unbelievable upside.


3.) Chris Hernandez WR (Mayfield)-very polished WR. Great size and great hands. Is not a burner, but not a turtle either. Very effective weapon.


4.) Matt Nulk DE (La Cueva)-Was an absolute terror for opposing teams. Very agile for a kid who is 6'5 and extremely aggressive. Has a big upside himself.


5.) David Bustillos QB (Mayfield)-Just a player who did what took to carry his team to a state championship. Very effective passer and runner.


6.) Nicky Lawson WR (Manzano)-dangerous WR whose deceptive speed helped him make plays the past 2 years. Will play for UNM next year.


7.) Abdullah Konte CB (Eldorado)-fast CB who was probably the states best. Great athlete who also helped with his play at RB.


8.) Caleb Elliot RB (Kirtland Central)-perhaps the states most underrated player. Put up big time numbers despite having very much help. Big, strong, fast.


9.) Brandon Torrey OL (Rio Rancho)-one of the better OL the state has seen over the past few years. The anchor for an offense with gaudy numbers 2 years in a row.


10.)Devin Sweet S (Clovis)-very good player from his safety spot and could also be argued as one of the state's best QB's. Very big and athletic.


11.) Sam Camili DT (Mayfield)-stud for Mayfield the past 2 years. Very consistent and strong. Also a standout OL.


12.) Clint Carroll QB (Cibola)-Dual threat QB who has been outstanding for 3 years. Made things happen despite lack of supporting cast.


13.) Jared Metzgar RB (Manzano)-Big bruiser who put up big numbers the past 2 years. Was an almost automatic TD in the redzone.


14.)Kurt Bejewski OL (La Cueva)-not the biggest OL, but definitely the most technique sound. Very underrated player! Tough as nails.


15.) James Stanford LB (St. Pius)-not extremely fast and not even that big at 6'0, 205 but an absolute tackle machine. Tough kid and a great LB.


16.) Nick Wilhelm WR (Los Lunas)-Made plays all over the field and was also a shutdown DB and a great punter.


17.) Roy Hackey S (Hatch)-great talent, with tough demeanor and a great set of tools for college. Will play for UNM next year.


18.) Aaron Simon OL (Clovis)-tough as nails and anchored a great OL. Big with a mean streak.


19.) John Ciepiela TE (Eldorado)-Great threat catching the ball and also a very good LB.


20.) Steven Gilbert RB (Academy)-Not as flashy as some other RB's the state has, but there are none tougher. Put up numbers just as good as anyone over the last 3 years.


21.) Albert DeHoyas LB (Artesia)-tough little LB. Mean and made plays all over the field for Artesia. Very fast and has great instincts.


22.) Mike Olsen LB (Rio Rancho)-Great looking LB. Very fast and was the best player on a very athletic and quick defense.


23.) Chris Finch TE (Clovis)-big body who at times dominated opponents. Still very athletic for his size.


24.) Terrance Lowe RB (Alamogordo)-Fast and a big play waiting to happen.


25.) Jesus Baca S (Goddard)-great player for Goddard the past 3 years. Very athletic and was even a dangerous dual threat at QB.


26.) Dakota Woodard RB (Silver)-very good player. Surprises you with his power and his quickness is up there  with the best. Very smart and patient player.


27.)Jacob Morales WR (Silver)-Very athletic big guy at WR. Made plays when he needed to and was a threat for 6  downfield.


28.) Scotty Crespin RB (Socorro)-shifty little runner who is clearly underrated. Has real good speed and quickness.


29.) Greyson Wieczorek LB (La Cueva)-Strong and physical Lb who made running to his side very difficult. Good speed and good size. Will Play for UNM next year.


30.) Tommy Spangler RB (Goddard)-very similar to Jared Metzgar. Has a little more power and used it. Tough kid with a LB mentality at RB.


31.) Sean Sullivan QB (St. Pius X)-solid player over the past 2 years. Was a dual threat with a very strong arm.


32.)Cory Marcum WR (Aztec)- spent his days torching defensive backfields, while at Aztec. Very quick player with sure hands.
