ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Fewer than two weeks away from the season opener on Sept. 1, one defensive lineman is looking forward to contributing more in his second year with the Lobos.

But he needs to get healthy first.

Jermaine Conyers transferred to New Mexico from Dodge City College in Kansas before last season, playing mostly off the bench in the 2017 campaign, though he did start one game.

Conyers finished the year with 17 tackles and one forced fumble.

As Lobo preseason workouts wrap up, the Georgia native is battling a groin injury he's sustained, but he said he expects to be ready to go in the season opener against Incarnate Word.

"We were always told that no matter if you're first team or second team, when you're on the field, you're first team," Conyers said. "So therefore that's how I always thought of it. I took it as such, and just played – made plays and took advantage of what I needed to do."
