The Davon House story

The former Aggie cornerback being drafted is a great story.

He is a good kid who did things the right way while at New Mexico State — headlines for what he did on the field, not off it. He always worked hard, did what was asked and was rewarded.

And this is the prototypical player the Aggies need to recruit — no scholarship offers coming out of high school, a diamond in the rough who was coached up and found his talent. I think they have a couple more like this on their roster — Robert Clay and Davonte Wallace stand out. I'm sure there's a few others.

It helps NMSU from a recruiting standpoint. Players can come to the Aggies and know they'll be taken seriously by pro teams.

And the Packers are a fine organization — winners of last year's Super Bowl and a team that has built itself through the draft.

A good story all the way around.

I'm really happy for him!

He did some good things on the field but off the field?
He was all over town as the ambassador of the program.

It's hard to say if there will be an NFL season. If there is, I hope he makes a lot of money.
If there isn't, he's got a degree in hand.

Great situtation for him. He gets to learn from some of the top CB's in the NFL. Big things in store for him.
