Dante Caro

Caro tells us via email that he was contacted this afternoon by the Joe Montana top QB in the nation award. He is on the initial top 100 list.

Players getting national recognition from New Mexico are few and far between.  Every once in awhile a great one like Landry Jones will come around, but for the most part for a player in this state to get national type hype that's usually few and far between.  While currently only three players in the state have D1 offers to speak of, one player is being recognized for his talents regardless of the lack of offers.  Las Cruces QB Dante Caro informed us earlier this morning via email that he had been contacted via a telephone call from the Joe Montana national QB of the year award.  He is in the initial 100 QB's in the nation that will than be slimmed down until the eventual winner is announced later this year.

Caro is a dual threat type athlete that is probably better suited to play WR in college.  While he doesn't have any official offers yet, he is hearing from several schools and thinks that an official offer may be coming sooner rather than later.  Dante feels this is a tremendous honor to even be considered for such a prestigious award.  Add in the fact that he's doing it from a small state like New Mexico and you get the idea of just how talented he actually is.

Congratulations goes out to Dante for this prestigious honor.  We will have a feature interview with Dante in the next couple of days, to get his feelings on recruiting, which schools are talking to him and if he thinks Las Cruces can win a state title this season.
