The good news for the Roswell Coyotes offense is they are returning senior running back Gabriel Najar.

All Najar did last season was rush for over 1,000 yards and scored 11 TDs.
In coach Jeff Lynn’s run-friendly offense, there is no secret that it all starts on the ground for the Coyotes. Najar will count on backfield field mate Brandon Perez, to form one of the best inside-outside rushing duos in Chaves County.
RDR: What are your thoughts heading into the season?
GB: It’s the last time I get to put on the pads, it’s the dream I have always been waiting for. Now it’s finally here.

RDR: What did you work on to get ready for the season?
GB: I was working on my speed. I was trying to get faster.
RDR: What do you read when you get the ball?
GB: I run through the hole I’m supposed to, if I see a hole, I will try to cut the ball back against the grain if I see an opening.
RDR: What is your favorite thing about being a senior?
GB: Picking my teammates up when they’re down. I like being responsible for the team.
RDR: What did it feel like to start winning?
GB: It felt good, because we hadn’t had that in a while.
