LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Day one of the 2010 NM State football fall camp is in the books and the energy and excitement around the team hasn't been higher. The Aggies put together a two and a half hour practice on Wednesday afternoon, consisting of individual and team drills, as well as special teams and offensive versus defensive competitions.

The team was dressed in shorts and helmets, as it goes through the NCAA mandated five-day acclimation period before they jump into full pads on Sunday, Aug. 15 and two-a-day practices, which starts on Aug. 16.

NM State's football team opens the season, Sept. 11, at home against San Diego State.
