The New Mexico Activities Association (NMAA) may have postponed the 2020 high school football season to next spring but Rio Rancho rising senior quarterback Joey CaveJoeyCave6'0" | QBRio Rancho | 2021StateNM got some good news earlier this week when he received his first college offer from Culver-Stockton College in Canton, MO.

“I was surprised and felt blessed to have someone finally see the work I’ve been putting in,” Cave told Prep Redzone New Mexico.

Serving as Rio Rancho’s backup QB behind entrenched starter Isaiah Chavez last season, Cave saw limited action with the Rams varsity but excelled as the starting quarterback for the JV team. Competing at numerous camps starting last fall paid dividends when the Culver-Stockton coaches watched his film and were impressed enough to extend an offer.

“They reached out to me about a month ago,” Cave said. “I have attended numerous camps starting last season but with the current COVID restrictions I’ve been limited to only a few local camps (in recent months). I did receive an invitation to the FBU top gun camp in Florida but couldn’t attend due to the situation in Florida. Unfortunately,  traveling out of state is not an option as of right now.”
