Albuquerque, N.M. --- What exactly does it take to survive preseason football camp? What is it like to walk in the shoes of one of the Lobo captains? Now you can find out with the short LoboTV film “A Day in the Life … with Dakota Cox”.
Filmed over the course an entire day of fall camp (Thursday, August 14 to be precise), LoboTV Executive Producer Kasey Byers had the opportunity to shadow Dakota as he ate meals, went to meetings, and practiced. There might even be a shot of some of the downtime at fall camp, which might or might not include an old-school Nintendo 64.
The nearly 8-minute film gives a great glimpse into what the fall camp experience is about for Lobo football, and it certainly lends insight into how a true sophomore was elected one of three team captains for the 2014 season.
“Being able to follow Dakota around is showcase not just Dakota, but the program that Coach Davie is building, is what this film is about,” said Byers, whose first major video on the unveiling of the new Athletic Performance Center for Football is now the most-watch football video on LoboTV’s YouTube page, and the fifth-most watched video in the channels history. “Bringing our fans this type of insider access is a great way to build that relationship between the student-athletes and the fans.”
Dakota and the team open the 2014 season on Saturday, August 30 when the UTEP Miners come to Branch Field at University Stadium for a 6 p.m. kickoff.
