Mesa Better than What Its Record Shows

Sports

It’s been a disappointing start for Colorado Mesa football in 2019. A (1-2) start is not what they expected, nor wanted. By the slimmest of margins they are in this position heading into week four.

“When we went through this stuff with our players we talked about how we are two plays away from being 3-0. We’re one play away from being 0-3.” CMU head coach Russ Martin said.

That is very true, every game has been incredibly close for Mesa. Week one they beat South Dakota Mines by four.

Week two they lost to Eastern New Mexico in overtime 44-37.

Week three they lost to Western by two points thanks to a field goal as time expired.

“The attitude is everyone’s mad,” red-shirt sophomore wide receiver KJ Sapp said. “No one expected us to be here at this point of the season. It’s been a while since any of us have been here three games in.”

“I’m very proud of the way these guys continue to battle and compete and I think those are going to be big things as we continue to move down the line.” Martin added.

The Mavericks start conference play this Saturday against Chadron State on the road.
