The Fifth-Year Senior Shined Bright In Wins Over Texas
Max Willett led the high-powered New Mexico offense by batting .636 (7-11) with a triple and two doubles in two wins over then #1 Texas in Austin on opening weekend. The center fielder had the game-winning RBI in the top of the 9th inning to give the Lobos a 6-5 win over the consensus #1 ranked team in the country heading into the 2010 season. It was New Mexico’s first-ever win over a top-ranked team, and the Lobos followed that with a 3-1 series clinching win the following day.
In this exclusive interview with Collegebaseball360.com editor Sean Stires, Willett talks about his head coach, Ray Birmingham, his team’s big weekend, how the Lobos can keep their sudden momentum going, and more.
