Week 5 of this extraordinary – and abbreviated - New Mexico high school spring football season unfolded this past Easter weekend across the state. Here are the standout performers and units for the weekend:

Nathaniel Fresquez, Socorro: One of the top players in Class 3A, Fresquez led Socorro to a 5-0 record this spring and has committed to New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI) to play JUCO football. Thursday, he led the Warriors to a 48-14 ‘bowl game’ win over Dexter at UNM Stadium.

Jared Jeffrey, Lovington: The Wildcats’ senior quarterback finished his prep career by throwing for 275 yards and three touchdowns in Lovington’s 37-19 win over Bloomfield at UNM Stadium.

Adam Aguilera Adam Aguilera 5'8" | WR Lovington | 2022 State NM , Lovington: One of three stellar junior wide receivers on Lovington’s roster, Aguilera had eight receptions for 92 yards and one TD in the Wildcats’ season-ending win over Bloomfield in the Class 4A bowl game at UNM Stadium.

Kaden Trevino, Hobbs: Trevino, a talented sophomore, rushed for 126 yards and 2 touchdowns in Hobbs’ convincing 47-0 win over Onate last Thursday night. Hobbs lost three close games to start the spring but finished with victories over Artesia (56-27) and Onate, carrying some momentum into the fall.
