Ruben Martinez standout RB and LB from Los Alamos
HS (NM) received his first offer last week; that offer coming from the Aggies of
New Mexico State.
PrepNewMexico.com: How were you offered?
Ruben: I went to their three day air
raid camp a couple of weeks ago.
They had talked to me a lot before hand and the funny thing is that I was
the only RB that was at the camp.
That got me a lot of one on one time with Coach Wilson, so we got really
close. Plus they are really
starting to turn things around.
They are getting lots of new stuff in the program. Like facilities and I really feel like
they are up and coming. At the camp
I was able to show them that I can really catch the ball, I don't get a chance
to do that to much in our offense that we run at
PrepNewMexico.com: How does it make you feel that
Ruben: It makes me feel really excited. I'm proud of myself and I really don't feel any pressure for our upcoming season. I feel really happy and it feels good to be recognized, I just want to now go out and play football.
PrepNewMexico.com: Which coach is currently recruiting you?
PrepNewMexico.com: What do you like about
Ruben: I really like their facilities, after this season they are getting a new 4 story pressbox, this season they are getting a new scoreboard. While that doesn't really effect me to much it does show me that they are committed to getting bigger and they feel like bigger things are coming there way. I also really like there offense, I think I can do some things in that style because of my abilities to catch the ball.
PrepNewMexico.com: When are you going to decide on your school of choice?
