Aggie freshman running back Larry Rose III was named to the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award Watch List Aug. 20, one of 43 players and one of only two freshman named to the list.

The Earl Campbell Tyler Rose award recognizes the top offensive player in D-I football who also exhibits the enduring characteristics that define Earl Campbell: integrity, performance, teamwork, sportsmanship, drive, community and tenacity. More specifically the tenacity to overcome adversity and injury in pursuit of reaching goals.

In addition to those attributes, the athlete must be born in Texas and/or graduated from a Texas high school and/or played at a Texas-based junior college or four-year college.

Rose is from Fairfield, Texas, where he attended Fairfield High School. Playing running back and defensive back, as a senior Rose was named the Associated Press Sports Editor Class 3A Offensive Player of the Year and a first team all-state selection.

He rushed for 2,924 yards on 237 carries and 49 touchdowns his senior year. He also caught nine passes for 114 yards and three touchdowns. His season high was six scores in one game. Rose helped his team to a 15-1 record, the state championship game, and the No. 19 ranking in the state of Texas. Defensively Rose recorded seven tackles, six pass breakups and one interception.

Of the 43 players to be named to the watch list, there are nine conferences represented as well as three independent schools. By position, 17 wide receivers, 12 running backs, eight quarterbacks, three tight ends, two fullbacks and one halfback were selected for the watch list.

The Aggies home opener is set for Aug. 28, at Aggie Memorial Stadium against Cal Poly.

The home opener is on Thursday, Aug. 28 at 6 p.m. (MT) and is being marketed as Ag Day, with over 40 New Mexico agriculture companies on display during tailgating. The Aggies will play host to Cal Poly.

A special kid price has been introduced this season, as all kids 12 and under can receive entry to any home game this season for just $5. The home opener will also feature a special concessions deal for kids. Each $5 kid’s ticket holder will receive a free hot dog and drink at the concession stands. This special concessions deal is good for the home opener only.

The Aggies will also be revealing the brand new playing surface, which includes a giant Pistol Pete logo at midfield, and a vibrant, colorful design. Kids will be able to come down to the playing surface following the game.
