When we first came up with this idea there was a little concern that Lobo fans would gravitate to the bigger and more popular sports, you know, the ones on television that pack the stadium and arenas across the country. Let's be honest when we think of Olympic sports we think about every 4 years athletes from different parts of the world coming together in the Summer or Winter Olympiad…
For those of you unaware of what "Leader of The Pack" is let me explain. On Thursday night we list 5 Lobos regardless of sport that we felt had the biggest impact of the previous week. From Thursday night until Sunday afternoon Lobo fans here on TheRedMenace.com vote for which they feel had the biggest impact on Lobo athletics.
This weeks nominees were:
Don Flangan- Women's Hoops
Mike Locksley- Football
Lee Emanuel- Track and Field
Jonny Parkes- Men's Tennis
Tony Danridge- Men's Hoops
So without further ado, you inaugural (first ever for those of you that are Aggies.) Leader of the Pack is
Lee Emanuel Lobo Track & Field
Lee comes to UNM via Hastings England. Here is his bio from Golobos.com
International transfer who coaches believe could be one of the top 800-meter men in the Mountain West this year...coming off a highly productive debut cross country season for the Lobos...has 2 years of eligibility remaining...
