As I was passing through the Atlanta airport last Saturday, I saw a familiar face – NMSU head coach Doug Martin. I walked up to him and shook his hand; he said he was on his way back to Las Cruces after visiting his parents in Tennessee for part of the holidays.
Coach Martin and I had a nice chat about his recruiting plans for the upcoming Signing Day on February 5th, as well as his re-shuffling and re-evaluating of the coaching staff. The more I heard from Coach, the more confident I felt about his direction of this program. He even spoke about changing NMSU’s football facilities, specifically mentioning an $800,000 donation to upgrade the weight room.
Only three weeks until Signing Day. Can’t wait to hear about these new Aggie recruits and how they’re gonna help us win!
