SALDI STAYS WITH REBELS

He may not be on the playing field but UNLV’s Bryce Saldi is always on the minds of his Rebel teammates as the senior linebacker continues to improve from a serious brain injury suffered during a skateboarding accident on July 3, 2009. Saldi, a graduate of Texas prep powerhouse Southlake Carroll High School, earned his first UNLV letter as a freshman in 2008 by playing in all 12 games, primarily on special teams. The son of former Dallas Cowboys tight end Jay Saldi was on vacation in Southern California at the time of the accident and is now continuing his rehabilitation back in the Lone Star State. In 2011, Saldi’s locker inside UNLV’s Lied Athletic Complex remains his and you will still find his No. 54 on all active Rebel football rosters through what would have been his senior season with the program this fall.

2011 SEASON OUTLOOK YOUNG REBELS HOPE TO HURRY PROCESS

S

econd-year UNLV head coach Bobby Hauck was quoted during spring practice as saying youth will be served (again) this season. In fact, a quick check of his team’s class breakdown confirms that 2011 will offer a Las Vegas-level buffet of freshmen and sophomores at Sam Boyd Stadium. Looking for more upperclassmen? Sorry, we’re running low. After ranking fifth in the nation last year with 14 true freshmen played (and 23 freshmen overall), if everyone returns, UNLV will field a senior class of 15 scholarship seniors and just 10 – that’s right, 10 – returning scholarship juniors. Those stark numbers were the primary reason Hauck’s second recruiting class here jumped from one junior-college signee to eight such transfers in February. “We may be the youngest team in college football next year,” says Hauck. “I can’t imagine anyone being more youthful. We’re young across the board, including having just one senior offensive lineman.” Asked about what he learned about the 2-11 campaign of last year, Hauck is blunt but hopeful. “We need to improve. We need to continue to be persistent and work hard at improving as a football team. We have a chance to be a good football team eventually. We will continue building this team the right way – recruiting primarily high school kids, becoming good fundamentally, working hard at everything we do. I know that persistence will pay off here.”

QUARTERBACKS

The bad news is that UNLV has to replace the man who played more games at this position (Omar Clayton with 40) than anyone in school history. The good news is that there are four men ready to combine into perhaps one of the strongest quarterback corps in Rebel history. The only returning letterman under center is Caleb Herring (6-3, 190, SO-1L), a third-year player who got into his first eight games last season while spelling Clayton. After a redshirt year, he certainly showed flashes of what made him a highly touted recruit out of high school, throwing touchdown passes in four hostile environments (inside at Idaho, at West Virginia, at BYU and at Hawaii) en route to finishing with 365 yards and three interceptions. With just one other quarterback on the roster – promising redshirt freshman Taylor Barnhill (6-4, 220, FR-RS) – Hauck decided to sign the school’s first junior-college signal caller since 2005 in the form of Sean Reilly (6-4, 210, JR-TR). Reilly threw for 2,425 yards and 26 touchdowns

THE OFFENSE

Transitioning away from Mike Sanford’s former purely spread offense, the 2010 Rebels finished with an average of just 274.2 yards per game. Playing the toughest schedule in school history had a lot to do with that, of course, as UNLV had little trouble scoring more than 40 points in both of its victories last fall. With a deeper quarterback position and HAUCK load of talented running backs at the staff’s disposal in year two, expect tangible progress this season. “I like the work we did this spring,” Hauck says. “We’re extremely excited about our young players at every position – from the line through the quarterbacks. With the youth on that side of the ball – the variable is time – but we have a chance to have a very productive offense.”

HERRING

with just six picks as a sophomore at Saddleback College and joined the Rebels at midyear. Hitting town this fall will be one of Hauck’s top signees to date, nice-sized Nick Sherry (6-5, 220, FR-HS) out of California’s Casa Grande High School. The highly productive thrower was ranked the No. 86 quarterback prospect in the nation by Scouts Inc. Herring exited spring ball leading Reilly and Barnhill but Hauck says there is no timetable for naming the team’s starter against Wisconsin. HAUCK SAYS: “I like the competition we have going. We are going to be youthful at the position, which can lead to some frustration at times but the talent level at the position with the addition of Sean Reilly and Nick Sherry gives us some options as well as a chance to be really deep in terms of quality. Caleb’s ahead right now but that should be expected as he has had a year in the system. We’ll give the guys a chance to compete for it in fall camp and we’ll see where it goes. The door is not closed. When we think it’s productive to name a starter, we will. “Caleb is going to continue to strive to be consistent day-in and dayout. He has a good chance to be a really solid player. Certainly he has a


2011 SEASON OUTLOOK huge advantage having played in this system for a year and getting into games. He did some good things. We tried to get him in whenever we had plays available for him last fall and we hope that will pay dividends down the road. Taylor is a young, inexperienced player. He has good athletic ability but is still learning the nuances of the position and it will be fun to watch him develop. It’s hard to tell right now with Sean because he’s only had 15 spring practices to gauge where he is. As the summer wears on and he can become less hesitant and more comfortable in the system, it will lead us to having a great competition in the fall. We’ll give Nick a look -- see how quickly he can grasp the principles in our offense -- and then make a determination on whether it will be more productive for him to play or redshirt. You ideally want to redshirt all of your freshmen.”

RUNNING BACKS

UNLV lost only one running back (graduating senior Channing Trotter) and brings back three that netted at least 100 yards in 2010. Leading the way is hard-nosed Texan Tim Cornett (6-0, 190, SO-1L), who took over the starting job in midseason and promptly became the first freshman in school history to lead the team in rushing yards with 546. His eight total touchdowns (six on the ground) also tied UNLV’s single-season record for a rookie. Pushing him on the depth chart is grayshirt addition Dionza Bradford (6-0, 210, FR-HS) who displayed tremendous potential during spring practice and should be in the mix for CORNETT starting duties as a true freshman this fall. Another big addition to the group was one of three midyear JC signees who took part in spring ball – Eric Johnson (57, 170, JR-TR). One of four new Rebels out of College of the Sequoias, the scat-back is able to line up at various spots and is listed on the postspring depth chart at a receiver spot. The old man of the group is senior speedster Deante’ Purvis (5-11, 195, SR-3L), who picked up 223 yards after converting from cornerback during the year to add some burst to the ground attack. The high-motored Bradley Randle (5-7, 195, SO-1L; 109 yards, 1 TD) is also back along with Imari Thompson (5-9, 2-5, SO-1L), who missed all of last year with a foot injury. High school star/bulldozer in a helmet Elijhaa Penny (6-2, 245, FR-HS) could add another dimension come autumn. The H-back position sports a couple of versatile veterans in returning starter Kyle Watkins (6-2, 245, SR-2L; 8 receptions for 110 yards, 1 TD) and recently converted receiver Aaron Reed (6-4, 220, JR-1L; 1-14).

HAUCK SAYS: “We have a lot of youth at running back -- our top players are freshmen and sophomores, except for Deante’ Purvis. But the position has the potential to be a real strength for us.”

WIDE RECEIVERS

A school-record-tying 18 different Rebels hauled in at least one reception in 2010 and only three of those players are not scheduled to return this fall. That translates into 90 percent of the team’s receptions (171 out of 191), 92 percent of the yards (2,040 of the 2,222) and 94 percent of the touchdowns (17 of 18) through the air remaining on the roster. The group is led by UNLV’s top awards candidate going into the season, senior Phillip Payne (6-3, 205, SR-3L). Despite missing two games because of suspension, the Las Vegas native rallied to finish with 40 receptions for a careerbest 689 yards (17.2 yard per catch) to go with five scores. Just five TD catches away from tying UNLV’s alltime record, Payne showed during spring ball that he is now flourishing and seems poised to post receiving statistics that match his considerable talents. Payne’s bookend was supposed to be fellow senior Michael Johnson (5-8, 175, SR3L; 51-571, 5 TD). PAYNE The speedster led the team in receptions as a junior but was suspended in January for academic reasons and his return at all is in question. Picking up the slack during spring practice was local product Marcus Sullivan (5-9, 185, SO1L; 6-102, 2 TD) and versatile JC signee Eric Johnson, who also lines up in the backfield. Another former Las Vegas prep star, Taylor Spencer (61, 190, FR-RS) is now a factor on offense after redshirting as a defensive back in 2010. A pair of pass-catching Texans are back this season in the form of Mark Barefield (6-0, 195, SO-1L; 2-24), who earned an injury medical redshirt last fall, and nice-sized sophomore Kurt Davis (6-5, 195, SO-1L; 3-37). Also picking up playing time last fall was Trey Mays (5-10, 160, JR-1L; 6-82) and Irshad Stolden (5-9, 185, SO-1L; 3-19, 1 TD). HAUCK SAYS: “We’ll need some of the young players to come along. The position is wide open and we expect some new players to step forward and come through for us. That being said, Phillip Payne coming back for his senior season is a good start. He’s had a strong off-season, working hard in the weight room, working hard on his skills on the field. He’s doing a really nice job trying to improve and he deserves to have a big senior season.”


2011 SEASON OUTLOOK TIGHT ENDS

Expect plenty of newcomers vying for time here in the fall (three of 13 UNLV high school signees in 2011 were listed as tight ends) but a pair of veteran returnees give the Rebels a solid base for the fall. Anthony Vidal (6-5, 250, SR-1L; 14-107, 1 TD) emerged as starter midway through the season while Austin Harrington (64, 235, SR-2L; 16-163) started the first half of the campaign and made an impression by leading all Rebels in receptions in three different games. Look for impressively sized redshirt Jordan Sparkman (6-6, 220, FRRS) to also compete for field time.

VIDAL

HAUCK SAYS: “We have a couple of veteran players and numerous young players who need to get in the mix, including a redshirt. I would expect one or two of those (new) guys to play this year.”

OFFENSIVE LINEMEN

Only two starters return at a position where no seniors are to be found among the two-deep. Yusef Rodgers (6-2, 250, JR-2L) leads the tackle spots and is listed as the starter on the right side while promising youngster Cameron Jefferson (6-6, 265, FR-RS) closed spring practice leading on the left. Shane Watterson (6-4, 290, JR-1L) and Brett Boyko (6-7, 295, FR-RS), the latter of whom missed spring recovering from shoulder surgery, are two more blockers in the conversation. The guards have more experience as Doug Zismann (6-2, 290, JR-2L) and Jason Heath (6-3, 280, JR-2L) are listed as the leaders on the left side while Sean Tesoro (6-2, 310, SO-1L) mans the right ahead of Jason Koontz (6-2, 310, JR-2L). Some immediate help is on the way as one of UNLV’s eight JC signees is former University of Washington blocker Allen Carroll (6-4 300 JR-TR), who comes over from the College of the Sequoias this fall. At center, redshirt Robert Waterman (6-2, 275, FR-RS) is battling returning starter Andrew Mack (6-1, 275, JR-2L) in the middle. HAUCK SAYS: “We’ve got a ways to go on the O-line. I like our potential but in order for us to have success on offense they need to realize it quickly. It will be highly competitive for playing time.”

THE DEFENSE

There are plenty of holes to fill on a defense that allowed 450 yards a game last year. But there is also optimism about this group’s development as the moving parts start to come together. “On the defensive side of the ball, aside from the corner position, there isn’t a lot of experience,” says Hauck. “We need to get better, big-

ger, faster -- understand the game more. It’s a complete work in progress on defense but I like where we’re headed. We are short-handed in the front seven and need more numbers on that side of the ball. We have been in that perdicatment for a year and there is no quick fix. We need to continue to recruit defensive players. Adding productive junior college players over there should allow us to begin playing better defense. We will need to continue to improve this defense to be competitive in our league.”

DEFENSIVE LINEMEN

Coaches are again hoping to pump some life into the Rebel pass rush, which produced only 12 QB sacks in 2010. There is some experience on the ends. Senior James Dunlap (61, 265, SR-2L) was credited by Hauck as having one of the top spring efforts on the team after totaling 38 tackles last year. Another pair of seniors, B.J. Bell (6-2, 260, SR-1L; 51 TT, 3.5 TFL, 1.5 sacks) and BELL Matt Kravetz (6-1, 255, PAULO SR-1L) ended spring leading way at the other end position. One of the JC midyear additions bolsters this spot as Trent Allmang-Wilder (6-6, 280, JR-TR) spent last year at College of the Desert. No one older than a sophomore is present on the two-deep for the interior linemen. Local product Alex Klorman (6-2, 260, SO-1L; 10 TT) has been a pleasant surprise after walking on; Desmond Tautofi (6-3, 300, FR-HS) is an emerging prospect who grayshirted in 2010 and went through his first spring ball; big Nate Holloway (6-3, 350, SO-1L; 15 TT) is expected to be a bigger contributor in his second season; and Tyler Gaston (6-3, 265, SO-1L; 13 TT, 3.0 TFL) was pushed into action as a true freshman and projects to have a bright future. HAUCK SAYS: “The defensive line is a concern. A year ago we were forced to play a lot of freshmen on the front, which makes it difficult to hold up as a defense. We’re hoping that those players continue to mature and improve and become a strength on our team. The three seniors need to play well this fall.”

LINEBACKERS

All three starting linebackers from 2010 are history and only one name on the post-spring depth chart has the word senior next to it – this year’s Battle Born Jersey No. 36 honoree Nate Carter (6-1, 235, SR-3L; 35 TT, 1 INT), who heads up the middle spot. Tani Maka (6-1, 240, SO1L; 34 TT, 2 TFL) leads on the weakside while Tim Hasson (6-2, 195, SO-1L; 19 TT) and converted running back C.J. Cox (5-11, 205, JR-2L) are battling at the strongside position. Perry Cooper (6-3, 225, FR-RS)


2011 SEASON OUTLOOK and William Vea (6-0, 220, FR-RS) are also in the mix. Coaches are looking for highly touted JC signee Princeton Jackson (6-0, 230, JR-TR) to make a big impression right away. HAUCK SAYS: “We’re working on improving our linebacker group top to bottom. I believe we’ve done that through recruiting, position moves and young people gaining some experience last year and becoming better. It’s the position that is probably the biggest question coming out of spring ball. The jobs are open and it’s a spot where we’re looking for more production. We do have a highly recruited junior college player coming in who will need to perform for us.”

DEFENSIVE BACKS

Cornerback is the defensive spot with the most experience as five quality candidates are listed on the depth chart after spring. Sidney Hodge (5-8, 175, SO-1L; 44 TT, 1.5 TFL) looked like a potential standout after playing in nine games as a true freshman while veteran tackler Quinton Pointer (5-10, 185, SR-3L) is an NFL prospect hoping to be back at full speed after missing last year and this spring with a knee injury, Cedric Coleman (5-9, 150, SO-1L; 4 TT) got his feet wet last fall while Will Chandler (5-11, 185, SR-3L; 37 TT, 2.5 TFL) tied for the MWC lead with five interceptions to go with two fumble recoveries. Youngster Kenneth Penny (5-11, 165, FR-RS) is the new face of the group after redshirting 2010. The safety position POINTER is not as crowded. Eric Tuiloma-Vaa (5-11, 180, SO-1L; 48 TT, 1.5 TFL) is a returning starter and leads the strong spot while Tajh Hasson (6-1, 185, FR-RS) had a good spring at free. Former Air Force transfer Corbin Brown (6-0, 175, JRTR) and veteran Kenny Brown (5-10, 175, JR1L; 5 TT) are also part of the picture. HAUCK SAYS: “We have some solid experience at corner and that looks to be a strength for us. At the same time, safety is young and inexperienced. It’s a position where you have to take charge and know how everything works. There is a steep learning curve for young players at that position so we have some work to do.”

THE SPECIAL TEAMS

Nolan Kohorst (6-1, 170, SO-1L) showed as a freshman why he was the first place-kicker signed by UNLV out of high school in years as he led the team in points after nailing 8-11 field-goal attempts and 29-30 extra points. Coming in to compete for both punting and kicking duties is JC signee Chase Lansford (6-2, 190, JR-TR) out of Santa Ana College. Receiver Marcus Sullivan was arguably the nation’s top freshman

return man a year ago, finishing 17th in all FBS with an average of 27.9 yards per attempt. Deante’ Purvis (3 returns for 39 yards) and Tim Cornett (14-333) and Bradley Randle (18-329) are all expected to vie for return duties along with newcomer Eric Johnson. Following spring, Thomas Wren (6-6, 290, SR-1L) is listed as the long-snapper and Trey Mays as the holder on kicks. HAUCK SAYS: “Kohorst is back and Lansford will come in and challenge for all three spots (punter, PK and kickoff). I think we have a chance to have a good return game this season. Our kickoff return game was pretty good and the coverage teams were good. We need to get our punt return game going as last year was not up to our standards. We have a chance to be real solid in all of those areas.”

THE SCHEDULE

A year ago, UNLV faced one of the most challenging schedules in all of college football (third-toughest for any member of a Non-Automatic Qualifying Conference since the advent of the BCS in 1998 according to Sagarin Ratings Index) and it doesn’t figure to get much easier this fall. In fact, UNLV will play four teams that finished ranked 11th or higher last season and host only five games total at Sam Boyd Stadium. On Thursday, Sept. 1, the Rebels will begin their second season under Hauck by traveling to Wisconsin, which finished No. 7 in the final AP poll after playing in the Rose Bowl. It will mark UNLV’s first trip to storied Camp Randall Stadium since 2004. The Rebels will remain on the road and play at Washington State on Sept. 10 to mark the first meeting with the Pac-10 Conference program in 20 years and the first in Pullman, Wash., since 1986. UNLV’s home opener is set for Sept. 17 when future MWC member Hawaii comes to town for what will be the Rebels’ latest Sam Boyd Stadium debut since 2004. That game will be followed up by a Sept. 24 visit from Southern Utah University for the first time since 1970. The Thunderbirds, who are scheduled to join the NCAA FCS Big Sky Conference in 2012, have played the Rebels three times in history (1968-70). For the first time since 2003, UNLV will have two open weeks in its schedule and the first one comes on Oct. 1. One week later, the 37th edition of the now-annual Battle for the Fremont Cannon will be waged when the Rebels head north to play another future MWC member, Nevada, Reno on Oct. 8. A trip to Wyoming on Oct. 15 will mark the latest conference opener in school history before the second bye week kicks in on Oct. 22. Colorado State comes to Sam Boyd on Oct. 29 before Boise State (No. 9 AP) on Nov. 5 plays the Rebels for the first time since 1977 and against UNLV in Las Vegas for the first time since 1976. Trips to New Mexico on Nov. 12 and then Air Force on Nov. 19 will be followed by the home finale vs. San Diego State on Nov. 26. The regular season ends on Dec. 3 with a visit to defending Rose Bowl champion TCU, which finished ranked second in the nation. HAUCK SAYS: “With seven road games, four games against teams that were ranked No. 11 or higher last year, and two non-conference road games vs. teams from BCS auto-bid conferences, we’ll certainly be tested again every week. The addition of Boise State to an already strong league makes our conference as strong as ever. We had better get to work so we can compete with the teams on this schedule.”


HEAD COACH BOBBY HAUCK Bobby Hauck, who was the winningest coach in Division I FCS, was hired as the 10th head coach in Rebel football history on Dec. 23, 2009. Hauck (pronounced HOWK) immediately got to work rebuilding the UNLV program and guided his new school through the toughest schedule in its history, including taking on five conference champions and three opponents that finished ranked in the top 11 of the final AP poll. His first Rebel team emerged from that guantlet with a 2-11 overall record but tied for sixth place in the Mountain West Conference. Hauck had spent the previous seven seasons as the record-setting head coach of the University of Montana where he compiled an overall record of 80-17, including leading the Grizzlies to three national championship games in the NCAA’s Football Championship Subdivision (formerly I-AA). The winningest coach in Big Sky Conference history, Hauck earned at least a share of the league’s title all seven years at Montana en route to compiling a record of 47-6. The more-recent numbers were even more impressive as his records in his last four seasons were 51-6 overall and 31-1 in conference play. Hauck, 46, was named Big Sky Coach of the Year in 2006, 2007 and 2009 and AFCA Regional FCS Coach of the Year in 2006 and 2009. He became the youngest head coach in modern Montana history when he was named to the post in 2002, and record-setting success soon followed as he compiled four more conference championships than anyone else in Grizzly history. His final UM team in 2009 team finished 14-1 and reached the FCS Championship game for the second consecutive season. “It’s my belief that Bobby Hauck is one of the great young coaches in America today,” UNLV Athletics Director Jim Livengood said. “His ability to direct a program, his history of success in recruiting and his love for the game of football clearly project him as having an exciting future here at UNLV.” A veteran of eight bowl games, Hauck also brought tremendous experience from stints coaching in both the Pacific-10 and Big 12 conferences. Previous to taking over his alma mater, he spent four years at the University of Washington (1999-2002) where he coached defensive backs and special teams and was considered one of the top recruiters in college football. Before that he was at the University of Colorado for four seasons (1995-98) where he was the special teams and recruiting coordinator while also coaching the safeties. Before joining the Buffaloes, Hauck coached the outside linebackers and handled recruiting duties for Northern Arizona University (1993-94). He served as a graduate assistant at UCLA in 1990-91 and in 1992 served as the Bruins’ on-campus recruiting coordinator. Hauck began his collegiate coaching career as a volunteer assistant for Montana in 1988-89, working with the secondary and then the inside linebackers. A native of the Treasure State, Hauk was a three-sport star at Sweet Grass High School in Big Timber, Mont., and went on to twice letter in track and field at the University of Montana. His first coaching position was in 1987 as an assistant at his prep alma mater before joining the collegiate ranks. Hauck, born on June 14, 1964, earned his bachelor’s degree from Montana in 1987 and master’s from UCLA in 1991. He and his wife, Stacey, have four children: daughters Sydney, Alexandra and Elise and son Robby. His father, Robert Hauck Sr., coached high school football in the state of Montana for three decades and his brother, Tim Hauck, played 13 seasons as a defensive back in the NFL and spent 2010 as an assistant coach with the Tennessee Titans.

REBEL NOTES & NUMBERS 2010=TOUGHEST UNLV SCHEDULE EVER PHILLIP'S HOUSE OF PAYNE: UNLV faced not only one of the toughest schedules in all of college football in 2010 but the 13game slate ranked No. 3 for difficulty for any member of a Non-Automatic Qualifying Conference since the advent of the BCS in 1998. The Rebels’ gauntlet finished 19th in the Sagarin Ratings Index, which was 26 spots higher than the next-toughest schedule for a Non-AQ league member (Colorado State at 45). In comparison, the highest Non-AQ schedule in 2009 was ranked 55 (UNM). The highest in 2008 was 54 (UNM), in 2007 it was 55 (SDSU), in 2006 it was 48 (Utah State) and in 2005 it was 57 (Ball State). Research shows that the only two Non-AQ teams to face a tougher schedule were the BYU squads of 2003 (14th-toughest schedule) and 2004 (11th toughest). UNLV’s previous highest schedule strength ranking was 42 in 1998, which was also led all Non-AQ schools that season. Some facts about the Rebels’ 2010 schedule: five opponents were ranked at the time of the UNLV game, which was a school record; eight of the 13 teams spent time in at least one of the two major polls during the regular season and three finished in the AP’s top 11 (No. 2 TCU, No. 7 Wisconsin and No. 11 UNR); nine of the 13 played in bowl games, including both schools appearing in the Rose Bowl (TCU & Wisconsin); and five of the 13 won at least a share of their conference championship. Overall, the 11 opponents that defeated UNLV in 2010 finished with a stunning combined record of 100-44 with five schools reaching double-digit win totals and three more with nine victories.

REBELATIONS...

ON TO THE UP AND UP Eight FBS programs are located in cities with an elevation of at least 4,500 feet above sea level and the Rebels regularly play at five of them, including four next season. Las Vegas is just over 2,000 feet above sea level.

OPPONENT END ZONES

After 32 games played, UNLV WR Phillip Payne has compiled 19 receiving touchdowns. The Las Vegas native needs just one more to move into the top three at the school and just five more in 2011 would tie him with all-time record-holder Henry Bailey (24 from 1991-94). A product of Las Vegas’ Western High School, he will head into his senior season with 127 receptions (12th all-time at UNLV) for 1,786 yards (13th). His freshman mark of seven TDs was just one shy of the school’s rookie record and also the MWC mark of eight by BYU’s Austin Collie in 2004. Payne had at least one score in his first five career games, which tied the school record for most consecutive games with a TD catch.

With UNLV’s season-opening game at Wisconsin moving to a Thursday (Sept. 1), the Rebels will play their 13th Thursday game in history. The program boasts an 8-4 record on Thursdays (including one bowl game) and an impressive overall non-Saturday record of 14-7-1. Youth will be served again by UNLV this fall as the Rebels last year tied for seventh overall in the FBS with 23 true and redshirt freshmen having seen action for Bobby Hauck in 2010, including six that started at least one game. The program also tied for fifth in the country for most true freshmen getting on the field with 14. In fact, there are twice as many returning lettermen sophomores (24) than juniors (12) for the Scarlet & Gray in 2011. Four of those new Rebel players earned a spot on the Rivals.com Freshman All-MWC Team in 2010 -- and all of them were true freshmen: CB Sidney Hodge, DE Ian Bobak, PK Nolan Kohorst and KOR Marcus Sullivan. Sullivan finished second in the league and ranked 17th in the nation in kickoff return average at 27.9. The Las Vegas native, who also caught six passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns as a wideout, turned in at least one return over 36 yards in six of the last eight games of the season. He had the most kick returns among anyone in the NCAA FBS top 20 in average with 35 attempts and shattered the UNLV record for kickoff return yards in a game with 224 (former record was 185 by teammate Deante’ Purvis set in 2009) vs. San Diego State on Nov. 27. Another UNLV true freshman, RB Tim Cornett, became the first freshman to ever lead the Rebels in rushing in a season after he took over as the starter in Week Six and went on to net 546 yards on 144 carries. The big Texan finished with eight touchdowns on the year (six rushing and two receiving), which tied the UNLV freshman record for a season (WR Lenny Ware with eight in 1996). A school-record-tying 18 different Rebels recorded at least one reception in 2010 and only three of those 18 are not scheduled to return this fall. That means despite guaranteeing a new starting quarterback, UNLV will enjoy players accounting for 90 percent of the team’s receptions (171 out of 191), 92 percent of the yards (2,040 of the 2,222) and 94 percent of the touchdowns (17 of 18) through the air remaining on the roster Hauck began a new tradition at UNLV in 2010 with the introduction of the “Battle Born Jersey No. 36.” In 1864, Nevada became the 36th state to enter the union, and the state’s official slogan, which appears on the state flag, is “Battle Born,” reflecting the state’s entry on the Union side during the American Civil War. Rebel Football Jersey No. 36 -- complete with a patch on the back of the state flag, will be worn by a Nevadan who best exemplifies the Battle Born spirit of his state and the toughness and pride of Rebel Football. The inaugural recipient was senior linebacker Ronnie Paulo, who turned in his No. 56 just before the season. In 2011, another senior LB from Las Vegas takes over the honored number as Nate Carter switched from his usual 55 during spring. Cornerback Will Chandler tied for the MWC lead in interceptions as a junior in 2010 with five and stood among the national FBS leaders with seven total takeaways. The Los Angeles product matched what the entire Rebel defense mustered in 2009 as five different players recorded one pick each that fall. The second year of the Hauck era brings only one new face to the coaching staff as veteran mentor Robin Ross took over as linebackers coach just before spring practice opened. He replaced Brent Guy, who left to become defensive coordinator at Tulsa.

2011 UNLV SIGNEES HAUCK ANNOUNCES HIS SECOND UNLV CLASS

LAS VEGAS – Head coach Bobby Hauck brought in players from states ranging from Florida to New York to Alaska to Nevada -and all the way from American Samoa -- as his second UNLV football class, made up of 23 future Rebels, was announced on the initial day of the national signing period. “This was a good day for UNLV, a real good day,” Hauck said. “Rebel Football took a big step forward with this recruiting class. These guys are big, tough football players and along with last year’s class, will be the basis for success in the future.” UNLV’s class boasted seven players who were assigned at least three stars by Scout, Rivals or Scouts Inc. The group consisted of student-athletes whose hometowns are spread among seven states and one territory: 12 from California, three from Texas, two each from Arizona and Florida and one each from Nevada, Alaska, New York and American Samoa. “We sure covered some ground this year,” Hauck said. “We’ll go wherever we need to go to put together a good class. Sometimes that is down the street and sometimes that’s in Anchorage. Texas is a hot-bed of talent that remains productive for us, as we signed three guys out of there this year.” The recruits list, which didnot include three grayshirts who signed a year ago but joined the program this semester as true freshmen, featured 15 high school players and eight junior-college players, just one year after a class that included only one JC signee. “We have a group of junior college players that can provide us some immediate help. It was necessary to recruit a number of JC players because the size of our junior class was so small. The basis of our recruiting remains high school players but we needed to balance the numbers out.” The class was largely even with 12 offensive players and 10 on defense, plus one special teams player. The full breakdown is was follows: 4 DL, 4 OL, 4 DB, 3 TE, 2 LB, 2 RB, 2 QB, 1 WR and 1 PK/P. “We’re trying to change the makeup of our team -- trying to get bigger and more physical and certainly this class answers some of those concerns. It takes some time to develop the young guys but down the road this will provide us a big, physical group.”

REBEL NOTES

♦ Cornerback Will Chandler got UNLV on the scoreboard with a 19-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter. It was the first career pick for the junior and marked the second consecutive game the Rebels scored on a “pick six” (Terrance Lee took one back 40 yards in the season finale win over San Diego State on Nov. 28, 2009). ♦ Chandler’s 82-yard fumble return in the second quarter was the third-longest in UNLV history (100 by Kevin Thomas at Baylor in 1999 and 84 by Amar Brisco at Wyoming in 1997). ♦ The attendance of 31,107 marked the 12thlargest home crowd in UNLV football history. ♦ The Rebels fell to 2-9 all-time vs. Big 10 Conference opponents in what was the first of four straight season openers vs. the league. UNLV is scheduled to open 2011 at Wisconsin, host Minnesota in 2012 and travel to Minnesota in 2013.

UTES EARN RECORD WIN OVER UNLV SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah capitalized on several UNLV special teams mistakes and put up 14 points in both the second and third quarters to run away with a 38-10 win in perhaps the final game between the two teams at RiceEccles Stadium in Salt Lake City Saturday afternoon. Terrance Cain got the starting nod at quarterback in place of an injured Jordan Wynn and threw for 207 yards and a pair of touchdowns, helping extend the Utes’

home winning streak to a Mountain West Conference record 19 games. UNLV used an 18-play 79-yard drive capped by Nolan Kohorst’s first collegiate field goal to knot the game at 3-3 late in the first quarter. Utah regained the lead at 10-3 when Eddie Wide punched it in from three yards out.
