NM State homecoming activities continue despite game postponed due to death of San Jose State football player


LAS CRUCES, NM (KTSM) – Following the tragic death of San Jose State football player Camdan McWright on Friday, New Mexico State’s game against the Spartans has been postponed.

The game was to be New Mexico State’s homecoming game. Activities such as the parade and tailgating always took place on Saturday before a short program with the team at Aggie Memorial Stadium that began at 4:00 p.m., the originally scheduled kick-off time.

After the performance by the NMSU band and the presentation of the distinguished alumni and returning court, the New Mexico State football team took to the field. Instead of playing a game, the Aggies signed autographs and hung out with the Aggie faithful in attendance.

The tragic death of San Jose State’s Camdan McWright is being felt throughout the college football world.

“It puts football in perspective. There are far more important things than football,” NM State head coach Jerry Kill said. “I’m just sorry for their whole football family.”

Kill had a chat with his team after the decision to postpone the game came down on Friday.

“I think they were in shock and not about playing but about the kid [Camdan McWright]”, said Kill. “I explained to them that I had already been through this situation. I said that there were more important things than football and that if we were in the same situation, we would not play. .”

No immediate makeup date has been announced for the contest. NMSU’s next game is scheduled for October 29 at UMass.
