STRENGTH & CONDITIONING

Power Behind The Program MIKE GERBER

Strength & Conditioning Coach

UNLV football’s strength and conditioning program is now under the guidance of veteran coach Mike Gerber. “The goal of the UNLV football strength & conditioning program is to maximize those physical traits that excellence in the sport demands,” Gerber said. “Football is a game of relatively short but extremely intense efforts requiring great power production. Because of this, the core of the program is made up of the Olympic Weightlifting movements. Run speed development and conditioning also follow the dictates of the game’s physical demands. Emphasis is placed especially on initial acceleration because most sprinting in football is relatively short. Conditioning is made up largely of position-specific movement patterns done in series of all-out effort with the quantity of work similar to a long football drive.” The Ernie Becker Sr. Strength and Conditioning Center’s 8,500-square-foot deck features all-new free weights, power racks and Olympian platforms. The 1,200-square-foot balcony level offers stretching and cardio areas. The room also features a premium sound system to further enhance the workout experience.

Weight stations cover the all-new state-of-the-art flooring inside the Ernie Becker Sr. Strength & Conditioning Center.

EQUIPMENT

Rebels Wear Only The Best UNLV’S All-New Bill Ireland Locker Room

114 custom-made player lockers fill the Bill Ireland Locker Room inside the Lied Athletic Complex.

PAUL PUCCIARELLI Director

Now in his 28th year overseeing the equipment department for UNLV, Paul Pucciarelli says he and the school are committed to outfitting players to be both safe and stylish on the football field. “My philosophy behind equipment is that student-athletes have enough problems, that is, they have to compete in the classroom and on the field — worrying about equipment shouldn’t be a problem,” says Pucciarelli, widely known as Pooch. “Our players are lucky because of the system we have set up here. The athletic department and the university provide us a tremendous support group.” The Lied Athletic Complex’s 10,000-square-foot, two-sided equipment room gives all 17 UNLV sports the services of an immense facility designed with the student-athlete in mind. In one of 19 team and staff locker rooms, players and coaches can simply drop off their uniforms at the end of a practice or competition. The next day a clean version will be waiting for pickup in personally assigned lockers located in a wall surrounding the equipment room.

SPORTS MEDICINE

The Finest Care The Marilyn & Si Redd Sports Medicine Complex sprawls over an 8,500-squarefoot area.

KYLE WILSON Director

Providing the best possible preventative and rehabilitative care, the UNLV football athletic training staff is headed by Director of Athletic Training Kyle Wilson, who is in his 29th year at the school. Made possible by a generous gift of $1.5 million from Marilyn and Si Redd, the Lied Athletic Complex’s athletic training facility incorporates the total scope of sports medicine over an 8,500-square-foot area. Aside from five staff offices, a rehabilitation room houses a dozen pieces of equipment including Cybex stationary bicycles, stair machines and treadmills, all under a natural skylight. The largest area features a dozen tables to offer student-athletes various treatments throughout the day. Taping, padding and bracing all take place in another all-inclusive room. Finally, an aquatic therapy room features three above-ground whirlpools surrounding a 10-feet deep pool for rehabilitative exercises.

TRAINING FACILITY

Palatial Practice Park The All-New Ernie Becker Sr. Football Fields at Bill “Wildcat” Morris Rebel Park

The UBU synthetic sports surface covers two full football fields on campus.

O

ne of college football’s largest and most impressive areas of its kind, Bill “Wildcat” Morris Rebel Park has been transformed into an athletic showcase over the past decade. In 2010, a state-of-the-art UBU synthetic surface was installed at a cost of $700,000. The artificial surface was originally installed in 2002 thanks to a $1 million gift from the family of Ernie Becker Sr. A completely new lighting system soon followed. Also, Bruce Bayne of Peccole Nevada and Ernie Becker Jr. helped develop an all-new grand entrance to the park, complete with pine trees, desert rocks and an archway. The palm-tree-lined area includes two full-sized practice fields. Also, Terry Manley of Champion Homes is responsible for the UNLV Football Manley Corner, which welcomes visitors, staff and student-athletes onto campus and into the heart of Rebel Football.

hirteen UNLV football players were named to the 2011 Academic AllMountain West team, which highlighted another strong year in the classroom by the Rebels. Marking the 13th consecutive season that at least seven UNLV players appeared on the academic squad, the total number of honorees was the fourth-most ever recorded by the program (the high mark is 20 set in 2008) and ranked third among MW teams a year ago. In fact, academic advising for football, which boasts multiple full-time advisors, has helped produce 153 such honorees since the school joined the Mountain West in 1999. Three players – TE Anthony Vidal, LB Tim Hasson and DL Tyler Gaston – earned the honor for the second consecutive season. Also, senior DB Daniel Harper earned the additional honor of being named a MW Scholar-Athlete. In addition, a stunning 19 Rebel gridders earned spots on the UNLV Dean’s List during 2011-12. In 2009, the program placed a player on the CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team for an unprecedented third consecutive season. Flair

IN THE COMMUNITY

Rebels For A Cause

U

NLV and its student-athletes are committed to success both on and off the fields of play. Rebel players have the opportunity to become more involved members of the Southern Nevada community. Through interaction with charitable organizations, local schools, hospitals and various youth events, the Rebels have become increasingly positive role models. Each year, the athletics department’s effort in Nevada Reading Week translates into dozens of area schools being visited by nearly a 100 athletes, coaches and staff. Other programs the Rebels have recently taken part in include holiday food drives, Child Haven’s holiday party, Communities in Schools, the Santa Clothes program, KLUC Toy Drive, Opportunity Village’s Santa Run and Joy Prom.

UNLV BOASTS FOUR COMMUNITY SERVICE ALL-AMERICANS SINCE 2002 UNLV wide receiver Casey Flair was one of only 11 players in the nation named to the 2007 American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Division I-A Good Works Team. The Alaska native became the fourth Rebel in six years selected to the prestigious collection of student-athletes that has been honored for its performance off the field since 1991. Former UNLV lineman Tony Terrell (Lawndale, CA) was the program’s first-ever honoree in 2002 and two-time All-American safety Jamaal Brimmer (Las Vegas) earned the nod in 2004. Las Vegas native Leon Moore was honored in 2005. Nominated by their school’s sports information directors and voted on by an AFCA committee, successful candidates must be heavily involved in working for charity and/or service to their community.

UNLV PRO DAY

The UNLV Pro Day takes place on campus each spring. For the 2010 edition, no less than 19 scouts from 16 different NFL teams were on hand. Taking part in all or some of the timed or measured events were a dozen Rebels who just completed their college careers and five of those players earned a spot in an NFL camp. This followed three UNLV 2009 seniors (wide receiver Ryan Wolfe, offensive lineman Joe Hawley and linebacker Jason Beauchamp) being invited to participate in the 2010 NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

UNLV has recently developed the Rebel Football Lettermen Alumni Program, which is designed to get former players back on campus and more involved with their alma mater. All football lettermen are invited to attend a special spring practice social mixer each April and then each fall attend an exclusive tailgate dinner before taking part in on-field pre-game festivities at the annual Homecoming game.

MOUNTAIN WEST THIS IS THE MOUNTAIN WEST

The Mountain West was conceived on May 26, 1998, when the presidents of eight institutions -- Air Force, BYU, Colorado State, New Mexico, San Diego State, UNLV, Utah and Wyoming -- decided to form a new NCAA Division FBS intercollegiate athletic conference. The split from a former 16-team conference re-established continuity and stability among the membership within the new league and signaled the continuation of its tradition-rich, long-standing athletic rivalries. Three of the MW’s eight original members have been conference rivals since the 1960s (New Mexico, Wyoming and Colorado State), while San Diego State (1978) and Air Force (1980) were longtime members as well. UNLV and TCU entered the fold in 1996 and the Rebels continued as one of the original eight institutions that formed the MW in 1999. With conference realignment sweeping the nation in recent years, the MW has been proactive in addressing membership changes. Boise State joined the Mountain West in 2011-12, followed by Fresno State and Nevada, Reno on July 1, 2012. Also on July 1, 2012, Hawai‘i became a football-only member of the Conference. On May 4, 2012, the Mountain West announced the additions of San Jose State and Utah State as full-time members effective July 1, 2013. From its inception in 1999, the Mountain West has been committed to excellence in intercollegiate athletics, while promoting the academic missions of its member institutions. Progressive in its approach, the MW continues to cultivate opportunities for student-athletes to compete at the highest level, while fostering academic achievement and sportsmanship. The Mountain West is noted for its geographic diversity. Some of the most beautiful terrain and landscapes in the nation can be found within its boundaries, including the majestic Rocky Mountain range, which borders four MW institutions (Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State and New Mexico). The high plains of Wyoming (elevation 7,220 feet – the highest Division I campus in the nation) contrast with the desert cities of Las Vegas and Reno, home to UNLV and Nevada, Reno while Fresno State and San Diego State add a West Coast influence with their locations in Central and Southern California. The inclusion of the Hawai‘i football program extends the Mountain West footprint to the beautiful islands in the Pacific Ocean. Mountain West members have participated in 51 bowl games under the league umbrella, including four appearances in BCS games. The MW has earned 61 postseason bids in men’s basketball, including 33 NCAA Tournament appearances and two NIT Final Four berths. MW women’s basketball has tallied 57 postseason slots, including 31 NCAA bids, five Sweet 16 appearances and one Elite Eight berth since 2000. The MW has produced 762 All-America selections among its 18 sponsored sports in the last 13 years. A total of 125 MW student-athletes have also earned Academic All-America accolades in that span. The Mountain West has captured three team national championships in men’s cross country and produced 32 individual national champions.

MOUNTAIN WEST FOOTBALL Entering the 2012 season, the MW has five contracted bowl affiliations – the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas, San Diego Country Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl and Gildan New Mexico Bowl. In 2011, the MW sent a record five teams to bowl games for the fifth consecutive year and had two teams ranked in the final BCS Standings and Coaches’ poll for the fourth straight season. League newcomer Boise State enjoyed a successful inaugural MW campaign, closing out the 2011 season ranked sixth in the Coaches’ poll and eighth in the AP poll. An innovator in the postseason bowl structure, the MW engineered many “firsts,” as league teams have participated in five inaugural bowl games (2000 Silicon Valley, 2001 New Orleans, 2002 San Francisco, 2005 Poinsettia, 2006 New Mexico), as well as placing the first non-automatic-qualifying BCS team into a BCS bowl game with Utah’s appearance in the 2005 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. With San Diego State’s Stephen Strasburg becoming the top pick in the 2009 MLB Draft, the Mountain West is one of only two conferences to have the No. 1 selection in each of the NFL, NBA and MLB drafts since the league’s founding in 1999.

Craig Thompson was the Mountain West Conference’s first employee when he was named Commissioner on Oct. 15, 1998. Ever since, Thompson has navigated the newest NCAA Division I conference through the ever-changing landscape of intercollegiate athletics. As the league enters its 14th season of competition in 2011-12, Thompson continues to create and improve the opportunities for Mountain West institutions and student-athletes to be successful both academically and athletically. Since the Mountain West opened its doors on Jan. 4, 1999, Thompson has been committed to excellence in intercollegiate athletics, while promoting the academic missions of its member institutions. Progressive in its approach, the MW has flourished under the guidance of Commissioner Thompson and continues to cultivate opportunities for student-athletes to compete at the highest level, while fostering academic achievement and sportsmanship. Thompson also has positioned the Mountain West for the future with the additions of Fresno State and the University of Nevada, Reno on July 1, 2012, and San Jose State University and Utah State University on July 1, 2013. The University of Hawai`i also joined the league this year as a football-only member. His leadership and vision have helped the conference enhance its television revenue and exposure through revolutionary agreements with CBS Sports Network and Comcast to become the first major collegiate athletic conference to launch a dedicated sports channel featuring exclusive programming around its athletic programs. Thompson has been instrumental in strengthening the position of the Mountain West in the current Bowl Championship Series (BCS) structure. In 2006, he spearheaded an effort that resulted in better access for the MW and more than doubled the annual BCS revenue on an annual basis for non-automatic-qualifying conferences. The MW has been steadfast in its efforts to find a way to make the BCS system fair for all universities. Through its first 13 years of competition, the Mountain West has participated in 51 bowl games, amassing a 31-20 (.608) all-time record in those contests. Over the last eight seasons, the MW has captured the Bowl Challenge Cup four times and owns the best win percentage in bowl games among the 11 FBS conferences. Prior to his current role, Thompson served as the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference for nearly eight years and as the only commissioner of the American South Conference prior to the merger of the two leagues in 1991. Thompson graduated from the University of Minnesota with an undergraduate degree in journalism. Following graduation, he spent two years as assistant sports information director at Kansas State University. He then spent three years as director of public relations and promotions for the NBA’s Kansas City Kings. Thompson and his wife, Carla, have a son (Ted) and a daughter (Emma).

Automatic BCS qualifiers are: No. 1 and No. 2 teams in the final BCS standings; champions of the Big East, Big Ten, SEC, Pac-10, Big 12 and ACC; Notre Dame (if it finishes in the top eight) and a non-automatic qualifying BCS team that finishes in the top 14, or in the top 16 if it is ahead of a BCS champion. The Mountain West is 3-1 in BCS games after 2011’s Rose Bowl victory by TCU over Wisconsin. 2013 BCS SCHEDULE January 1 – Rose Bowl January 1 – Orange Bowl January 2 – Sugar Bowl January 3 – Fiesta Bowl January 7 – BCS National Championship Game The Mountain West will look to participate in a BCS game for the fourth time in the last five years in the 2012 season.

MW FOOTBALL IN THE POSTSEASON

For the fifth consecutive year, the Mountain West sent five teams into postseason bowl games in 2011. The conference has earned 51 bowl bids since 1999 and holds a 31-20 all-time record in those contests, including a 12-3 mark against BCS automatic-qualifying conferences since 2004. The MW finished with a 2-3 (.400) mark in postseason play in 2011, marking the first time since 2005 the league did not post a winning bowl record. Since 2003, the MW owns the best win percentage in bowl games among the 11 FBS conferences with a 24-12 mark (.667). The SEC is second with a 42-22 (.656) record, followed by the Big East at 24-16 (.600) and the Big 12 at 34-28 (.548). Over the last eight seasons, the MW has captured the Bowl Challenge Cup four times and is the only conference to win the trophy more than twice since the award’s inception in 2002-03. The Bowl Challenge Cup was created by ESPN as a competition among the conferences in the FBS during the bowl season. In order to win the trophy, a conference must have the highest win percentage with a minimum of three teams participating in the postseason. The Mountain West earned its first Bowl Challenge Cup with a 2-1 bowl record in the 2004-05 season. The league also won the Cup in 2007-08 and 2009-10 with identical 4-1 marks. In 2010-11, the MW again claimed the Cup after finishing with a 4-1 postseason mark, making it the only conference to win in back-to-back seasons.

SAM BOYD STADIUM

S

tanding as one of the top college football facilities in all the West is UNLV’s versatile venue Sam Boyd Stadium. Undergoing a complete facelift and renovation during 1999, Sam Boyd expanded to its present capacity of 36,800 (with the ability to seat more than 40,000 when called for). Located in Las Vegas approximately seven miles from both the UNLV campus and McCarran International Airport, Sam Boyd Stadium successfully combines the excitement of a college football stadium and the versatility of an entertainment arena. The Rebel football team has posted a 137-109-3 record in 40-plus seasons playing there, including in front of a record three sellout crowds in 2007. SBS marked its 25th anniversary in 1996 by hosting the state’s thenlargest-ever sporting crowd on Sept. 14 when 41,091 fans witnessed UNLV take on Wisconsin. That total was surpassed just three months later when 41,238 saw BYU get past Wyoming in the first WAC Championship game. That record was re-written once more when 42,075 fans saw the Badgers return to face the Rebels on Aug. 31, 2002. The 2006 Las Vegas Bowl ultimately upped the record to 44,615 in a game between BYU and Oregon. The stadium has hosted some of the greatest talents in sports and show business. Future NFL quarterbacks Randall Cunningham, Jim McMahon, Drew Bledsoe, Carson Palmer, Andre Ware, Alex Smith, John Beck, Andy Dalton and Kellen Moore are among those who have played at Sam Boyd Stadium along with events involving athletes such as soccer legend Pele and motor sports stars. Additionally, the stadium has hosted world-class concerts by such musical acts as the Dave Matthews Band, the Eagles, U2, Paul McCartney, Wayne Newton, and the once-annual summer appearances by the Grateful Dead. A mecca for football played on all levels, the stadium is currently site of the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas each December, including six sold-out crowds in the last seven years, after serving as home to three Western Athletic Conference championship games from 1996-98. The facility has

24

served as host to professional football three times, including housing the two-time United Football League champion Las Vegas Locomotives in 200910. The Las Vegas Outlaws of the XFL made it their home in 2001; and the Las Vegas Posse, a Canadian Football League franchise, played one season in 1994. SBS also hosts high school games and has been site of the state’s prep championship. The venue also hosted two other college football events: the Silver Dollar Classic, which featured teams from historically black universities, and the Las Vegas All-American Classic all-star game from 2003-05. Originally named Las Vegas Stadium when it was built in 1971 at a cost of $3.5 million, the facility was re-named the Las Vegas Silver Bowl in 1978 and then known as the Sam Boyd Silver Bowl in honor of local gaming pioneer Sam Boyd beginning in 1984. Its name was officially shortened to Sam Boyd Stadium in April 1994. The first event held in the then15,000-seat stadium was a UNLV football game against Weber State on Oct. 23, 1971, won by the visiting Wildcats, 30-17. Official dedication ceremonies, however, took place the next season on Sept. 9, 1972, at halftime of a 35-28 loss to Western Illinois before 8,800 fans. SBS, which has always retained its horseshoe shape, underwent an expansion to 32,000 seats in 1978 and again enjoyed improvements in 1994. The Rebel Experience area outside the stadium opened in 1997. One of the highlights of the most recent renovation was the replacement of the so-called “Magic Carpet” retractable artificial turf that had been in place since 1985. Originally fitted with traditional AstroTurf, Sam Boyd was the first stadium in the world to install a Monsanto Corp. outdoor retractable turf, which helped give the facility its multi-purpose capability. The surface, which simply rolled up into cylinders in less than an hour, was installed at a cost of $1.2 million in part through a grant by the Sam Boyd family. Natural grass replaced the artificial turf from 1999-2002 before a synthetic surface, made by TurfTech, was installed in time for the 2003 season.

UNLV CHEERLEADERS & DANCE TEAM

Two of the nation’s best-known spirit squads, the UNLV Cheerleaders and the UNLV Dance Team (Rebel Girls) are fixtures at all Rebel football games. The teams perform at various UNLV athletic events and volunteer their time to appear at various events throughout the Las Vegas community. The Cheer & Dance Teams also devote time to instructing the UNLV Rebel Starzz – a group of young dancers ages 3-16 that performs at games each fall.

THE REBEL EXPERIENCE

Premiering at Sam Boyd Stadium in 1997 was the Rebel Experience. Situated in the northwest parking lot, the 64,000-square-foot-area is predominantly grass and includes six 30x60-foot cement pads that can be reserved for large gatherings and corporate outings. UNLV FIGHT SONG

“WIN WITH THE REBELS” Win with the Rebels a victory today! Win with the Rebels, the Scarlet and Gray. From mountains that surround you to far across the sea. We’ll win with the Rebels of UNLV. U-N-L-V UNLV Go, Fight, Win. We’ll win with the Rebels of UNLV.

THE STAR OF NEVADA MARCHING BAND

Numbering more than 100 strong, the Star of Nevada Marching Band, which began in its present form in 1978, is a big part of Rebel Football Gameday. Whether it’s pumping up the crowds at the Rebel Experience or entertaining fans at halftime, home Saturdays at Sam Boyd Stadium would not be the same without strains of “Win with the Rebels” peppering the autumn air. Directed by Tony LaBounty, the UNLV band is announced by Dr. Harvey Allen who in 2012 goes into his 34th season as the voice of the Star of Nevada Marching Band. UNLV ALMA MATER

Alma Mater, we praise you For spirit, the eternal flame, Strength which never falters, A tribute to your name Alma Mater, we thank you, Exalted Scarlet and Gray. Truth and wisdom from your standard In our minds and hearts will stay Alma Mater, we cherish you. And in our days that are yet to be, Our voices let us ever raise In honor, U-N-L-V.

THE FREMONT CANNON

Trophy Helps Illustrate Importance of State Rivalry

Not simply a traveling trophy for the winner of the UNLV vs. Nevada, Reno game, the Fremont Cannon is ever-present at the now-annual Battle for Nevada. The tradition of awarding the cannon to the victors started four decades ago when the Rebels’ first football coach, Bill Ireland, felt the young rivalry between the north and south schools could use a symbolic trophy to stimulate interest. The prize turned out to be a replica of the howitzer used by John C. Fremont, one of America’s foremost trailblazers, as he headed west into Nevada in 1843. Legend has it that Fremont violated U.S. War Department rules by taking the cannon with him on his westward trek without permission and then abandoned the weapon in a SierraNevada snowdrift. Built by the Kennecott Copper Corp., Nevada Mines Division, the cannon was originally valued at more than $10,000 and is considered one of the best, and heaviest, symbols of rivalry in college football. The Fremont is one of only two cannon prizes in all rivalry games, along with Illinois vs. Purdue. The Wolf Pack held the cannon first because they had beaten the Rebels 30-28 in the initial game of the series on Thanksgiving Day 1969. UNLV promptly won rights to the big gun in 1970 with a 42-30 home win and went on to dominate the series with eight wins in the next 11 games played. After UNR rebounded to win five straight games (1989-1993), UNLV regained the cannon in its Silver Anniversary Year in 1994. Last year’s UNR win put the Wolf Pack ahead 22-15 in the series, which has been continuous since 1987. The teams will meet again in Las Vegas on Oct. 13, 2012, to decide who gets to keep the fabled cannon.

A familiar sound to UNLV fans of all ages, Dick Calvert, the “Voice of the Rebels,” is in his fifth decade as the game announcer for UNLV Athletics. Calvert, who calls UNLV football, basketball, men’s & women’s soccer, baseball games and other events at Sam Boyd Stadium, Thomas & Mack Center, Cox Pavilion, Peter Johann Memorial Field, and Earl E. Wilson Stadium, has also served as the game announcer of the MWC basketball tournament, the Las Vegas Bowl and the NBA Vegas Summer League. Additionally, the longtime university staffer, works many MWC Championships hosted by UNLV and is the official starter for a number of university and NCAA golf tournaments. Calvert annually works over 100 local events. He was inducted into the Southern Nevada Sports Hall of Fame in June 2010. The former play-by-play broadcaster is also one of the most experienced commentators of American professional soccer, having served 18 seasons in both the North American and Major Soccer leagues. The Las Vegas resident retired from broadcasting and the UNLV Athletics Department after serving as the director of broadcasting, director of athletic marketing for Olympic sports and director of athletic facilities/operations. Calvert and his wife Anne have four adult children and are the proud grandparents of 10.

HEY REB

Embodying the Rebel spirit of the University he promotes, UNLV’s Hey Reb made his debut in 1983 and received a makeover in 1997. Named one of 12 All-American Mascots, he competed for the title of 2004 Capital One Mascot of the Year and made a strong showing by coming in second in online voting. No stranger to national television, however, Hey Reb also appeared in two memorable ESPN SportsCenter commercials.

REBEL HISTORY

O

pened as a satellite campus in 1957, the southern regional division of the University of Nevada became Nevada Southern University in 1965 and finally evolved into University of Nevada, Las Vegas four years later when the Board of Regents granted it autonomy under the state’s higher education system. Men’s basketball was the first sport organized at UNLV, opening play in 1958 under head coach and athletic director Michael “Chub” Drakulich. Baseball, also coached by Drakulich, started in 1960 and football came to campus nearly a decade later when head coach Bill Ireland’s squad went 8-1 in 1968. Women’s club sports such as tennis emerged in 1960 under administrator Alice Mason but basketball became the first women’s varsity sport in 1974. UNLV currently sponsors seven men’s and 10 women’s athletic programs.

NICKNAME

The nickname “Rebels” was given to UNLV athletic teams because the school, emerging from the shadow of the University of Nevada, Reno, in effect “rebelled” against its bigger and older brother to the north. The name “Runnin’ Rebels” (always spelled without a ‘g’) was coined in 1974 by then-sports information director Dominic Clark but refers only to the UNLV men’s basketball team.

COLORS

The school colors of Scarlet and Gray can be traced to the late1950s when UNLV adopted as mascot a wolf wearing a Confederate uniform. Scarlet and Gray were traditional colors of the Confederacy with its gray uniforms and red-based flag.

MASCOT

Today it’s Hey Reb but some at UNLV still remember the first official Rebel mascot — Beauregard. Dressed in a gray military field jacket and Confederate cap, Beau is a fanged, winking, black and white cartoon wolf. He came to be because the new school in Southern Nevada wanted to take a little jab at the Wolf Pack mascot of Nevada, Reno. “UNLV was rebelling against the status quo and the two schools’ mascots seemed to mimic the Civil War,” said former UNLV president, the late, Don Baepler, who later directed the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Natural History on campus. “Reno had a

28

northern looking wolf so we wanted a Confederate wolf.” The logo lasted until the early 1970s when a group of black athletes came to Baepler, who was academic vice president at the time, and voiced its displeasure with having a mascot that had a connection with the wrong side of the Civil War. “They said it didn’t feel right playing for a school with such a mascot...and I agreed,” said Baepler. “Southern Nevada has no real ties to the Confederacy so the change wasn’t a big concern.” The student senate voted on a new mascot and the human Rebel logo was born. Initially, a Colonial-like Rebel soldier was the official logo and there was talk at one time of changing UNLV’s nickname to Minutemen. Essentially there was no recognized UNLV mascot for about a half-decade spilling into the early 1980s. Enter Mike Miller, the award-winning local graphic artist who eventually became the creator of the cartoon man with a long moustache known as Hey Reb. Miller said his inspiration for the logo was historical Nevada frontiersmen from the 1800s such as John C. Fremont and Kit Carson. “The character is supposed to be a trailblazer of the old West,” said Miller. “I just sketched out a little mountain man with a long coat that had some fringe on it.” Despite the new Rebel eventually being displayed as having striking white hair on his head and face, Miller said Hey Reb was never supposed to be an old man and put his intended age at around 30 years old. As for the unusual name of the new character, there was no campus contest or high-priced marketing focus group involved. “I just wrote Hey Reb on the back of his coat on one of the many variations I gave them,” he said. “I was hoping it would be a good slogan – a yell-out cheer at games – but it never really caught on.” The mascot, however, did catch on in a big way as UNLV vaulted to the top in college apparel licensing within the decade. In 1997, a more muscular version of Hey Reb, minus a musket, was introduced and a refreshed version was developed in 2006. Beauregard may not be prevalent in today’s UNLV athletic events, but he’s certainly not gone and forgotten. The original sketch of the wolf was converted into a mid-court painting for basketball games played in the old University gymnasium. Today, visitors can visit the black, white, scarlet and gray logo circle in its original position at what is now the Barrick Museum, which still uses the existing oak hardwood basketball floor to hold its exhibits.

OCANADIAN

IMPORT=ALL-AMERICANO

Big Brett Boyko, a Canadian import who never even played his position before he signed with the UNLV football team, was named a Second Team Freshman All-America offensive lineman by Phil Steele’s in 2011. He also earned Honorable Mention Freshman All-America from College Football News and Honorable Mention All-Mountain West from the conference. Boyko (6-7, 310) redshirted the 2010 season a year after finishing a high school career in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, that saw him play quarterback and defensive line for St. Joseph High School. Last fall, he saw his first collegiate action by starting at the key left tackle spot on the road vs.10th-ranked Wisconsin. Boyko, who was one of three freshman offensive linemen to start for UNLV in 2011, ended up starting all 12 games and helped the offense rush for 164.1 yards a game, which was the best mark for the program since 2004. Rebel running backs turned in a total of six 100-yard rushing efforts and two backs finished with more than 600 yards each.

TIMMY TOUCHDOWN BATTLE BORN

After just 24 games played, running back Tim Cornett already has 16 career touchdowns (13 rushing, 2 receiving and 1 kickoff return). He is also the first Rebel to have scored on the ground, through the air and on a return during his career since future NFL receiver Henry Bailey, who played from 1991-94 and finished with 29 total scores (not including four that came in a bowl game) coming four different ways: 24 receiving, 3 rushing, 1 KOR and 1 PR. The tough Texan, who will be a junior in 2012, is just six scores away from breaking into UNLV’s top five all-time. Cornett’s 80-yard touchdown run last year vs. Hawai’i marked the longest rush by a UNLV player since Darin Brightmon went 89 yards vs. New Mexico State in 1989. It tied for the eighth-longest rush in school history and came just one week after he went 95 yards on a kickoff return for a TD at Washington State. As a sophomore, Cornett was among 50 football student-athletes that comprised the Watch List for the Paul Hornung Award, which is given annually to the most versatile player in college football.

Head Coach Bobby 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. This year’s honoree is junior cornerback Sidney Hodge out of Palo Verde High School who wore No. 23 his first two years on campus. The only returning starter in the secondary, Hodge tied for fourth in the nation last fall with four fumble recoveries and ranked fifth in the Mountain West with eight pass breakups.

REBELATIONS...

When Chuck Pagano was named the new head coach of the Indianapolis Colts in January, it created a unique entry for the Rebel football history books. Pagano, in fact, became the third member of the 1991 UNLV coaching staff under Jim Strong to eventually get the head gig for an NFL team (Scott Linehan and Tom Cable were the others) That impressive ’91 collection also included a future three-time collegiate head coach as running backs coach Jeff Horton would go on to lead Nevada, Reno (1993), UNLV (1994-98) and Minnesota (interim during 2010 season). Horton, who also was an assistant in the NFL with the Rams and Lions, is now at San Diego State. In addition, UNLV 1991 tight ends coach Greg McMahon is currently the special teams coordinator for the New Orleans Saints.

With UNLV’s season-opening game vs. Minnesota moving to a weekday (Aug. 30), 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. The Golden Gophers will be only the third Big Ten Conference team to play in Las Vegas, following a 2001 visit from Northwestern and five trips to Sam Boyd Stadium by Wisconsin, the last of which came in 2010. The only other time the Rebels opened their season on a Thursday in Las Vegas was Sept. 2, 1982, vs. BYU … Rebel Football will be well represented at the UNLV Athletics Hall of Fame ceremonies on Oct. 12. Being inducted the night before the Battle for the Fremon Cannon vs. UNR is the famed 1984 squad that went undefeated in conference play and won the California Bowl over Toledo and featured players such as QB/P Randall Cunningham and RB Ickey Woods and was coached by Harvey Hyde. Also going in is arguably the top cornerback in school history, Kevin Thomas. Best remembered for his part in the most famous play in school history when he returned a fumble 100 yards for a game-winning touchdown with no time on the clock at Baylor in 1999, KT started all 46 games during an All-America career that included setting the school and conference record for interceptions in a season with seven in 2001. He went on to play four seasons with the NFL’s Buffalo Bills … Even with its primary returner -- Marcus Sullivan -- redshirting instead of running down field last season, the UNLV kickoff return game shot up the charts in 2011, finishing 24th in the nation with a team average of 23.7 yards per attempt. Senior Deante’ Purvis had the third-best return average in the MW at 24.4 yards per attempt and became both UNLV’s and the league’s all-time leader in both returns and return yardage. UNLV took two KORs back for TDs in 2011: Purvis had a 98-yarder vs. CSU and RB Tim Cornett took one back 95 yards at Washington State. Another young RB, Bradley Randle, ranked 10th in the MW with an average of 20.3. In 2010, Sullivan finished second in the league and ranked 17th in the nation at 27.9, posting at least one return over 36 yards in six of the last eight games while shattering the UNLV record for kickoff return yards in a game with 224 vs. San Diego State … Nearly 30 percent of UNLV’s 2011 opening-day roster (29 of 100 players) were products of Nevada high schools, which was the most for the program since moving up to NCAA Division I in 1978. Only the 1970 (37) and 1976 (31) teams ever had more Silver Staters on the roster … UNLV started three different quarterbacks last season for the first time since 1998. When Caleb Herring took the opening snap at Wisconsin on Sept. 1, he not only made his first collegiate start, but he also became the seventh different opening-day starter for the Rebels in the last eight years. Herring started the first five games before Sean Reilly, who signed out of Saddleback College at midyear, started two straight. Herring returned to start the Boise State game but was knocked out late against the Broncos. That led to redshirt freshman Taylor Barnhill making his first career start at Thomas New Mexico. Herring started games 10 and 11 before Barnhill went the entire way in the season finale at TCU … The third year of the Hauck era brings only one new face to the coaching staff as veteran mentor Tim Hundley took over as inside linebackers coach just before spring practice opened. He replaced Robin Ross, who left for a similar position at Wyoming. The team will also have new coordinators on both sides of the ball as during the off-season, tight ends coach Brent Myers was elevated to Offensive Coordinator and secondary coach J.D. Williams was elevated to Defensive Coordinator.

obby Hauck is tired of talking about how young his Rebel football team will be this season. You certainly can’t blame the third-year head coach for lacking enthusiasm for rehashing the sorely needed roster-building that is still in full swing at the Lied Athletic Complex. However, these stark numbers will dominate the headlines in 2012 preparations: UNLV Has Just Two Senior Returning Starters and a Total of 13 Scholarship Seniors. Want more? Only eight of the 44 spots on the team’s post-spring two-deep are filled by seniors who have played at least one down for the Rebels and reaching the 85-scholarship limit for the first time since the John Robinson era is at least another year away for the program. Still, such realities are the only things the coach is lacking enthusiasm about regarding Rebel football. “We are a better-looking team in our uniforms but the depth chart shows the youth, thus we’ve got to keep developing our underclassmen and leadership within the group,” say Hauck. “It’s obvious that our off-season and strength program are beginning to pay off. Instead of spending entire practices coaching effort and intensity, we are now able to spend more time on technique and scheme.” Make no mistake, with this staff’s first two recruiting classes now taking center stage, the pieces of the pigskin puzzle are indeed falling into place for a program that has not posted HAUCK a winning record in a dozen years. “This is a process and we’re right where we need to be in this stage of our program’s development in terms of building a consistent, winning football team that does things right during Saturdays in the fall and every other day during the year,” says Hauck. “Yes, we’re still young, but when people see how we play and the improvements we’re making, they’ll be excited about the future of our program. I think this team will be fun to watch. Rebel fans will be proud of the way their team competes.”

RUNNING BACKS

Six-game starter Tim Cornett (6-0, 205, JR-2L) is the clear leader at tailback after running for 671 yards and seven TDs. The tough, speedy Texan had two long touchdowns as a sophomore, one on an 80-yard rush vs. Hawai’i and another on a 95-yard kickoff return at Washington State. Now he’s primed to become the first player to lead the team in rushing for three consecutive seasons since Michael Morton in 1979-81. Fellow junior Bradley Randle (5-7, 190, JR-2L) started two games and looks to continue providing his powerful burst as he ran for a career-high 489 yards and two scores last fall. He led the team in rushing in three games, including rolling up 96 yards on just 10 carries vs. Boise State. Veteran Imari Thompson (5-9, 215, SR-2L) has only five career carries but figures to take on a bigger role as long as he remains healthy. Also, former junior college speedster Eric Johnson (5-7, 170, SR-TR) showed this spring that he can play in both the slot and backfield. This position looked to be the deepest on the team with everyone back in 2012 before the unexpected spring departure from the program by sophomore-to-be Dionza Bradford, who rushed for 615 yards and three TDs as a rookie. HAUCK SAYS: “Our leading rusher the past two seasons, Tim Cornett, is back for his junior year and sits atop the depth chart. Plus, we have numerous players who can fill in at that position. Bradley Randle is a tough capable guy. Imari Thompson brings us some size and there is a chance that Eric Johnson can add some spark there.”

OFFENSIVE LINEMEN

The old men of the team reside here as the front five all return and even boast a couple of those rare seniors. A year after blocking the way for an emerging running attack that produced six 100-yard individual efforts and the best per-game average (164.1) since 2004, this unit could also end up being home to multiple honors candidates. In fact, it was ranked second in the Mountain West by Lindy’s behind only Boise State’s front. Big Canadian Brett Boyko (6-7, 310, SO-1L) started all 12 games at left tackle and earned second team Freshman All-America honors while right tackle Yusef Rodgers (6-2, 260, SR-3L) is relatively fleet of foot over on the right side. Redshirt rookies Andrew Oberg (6-7, 280, FR-RS) and Alex Novosel (6-6, 270, FR-RS) are the next wave of tackles. Wily veteran Doug Zismann (6-2, 300, SR-3L) is penciled in at right guard while Cameron Jefferson (6-6, 300, SO-1L) emerged as the starter on the left. Returnees Brad Overand (6-6, 280, JR-1L) and Jason Koontz (6-2, 315, JR-2L)

WIDE RECEIVERS

No area of the team is younger at the top than this one as the two-deep lists three sophomores and a walk-on senior at the two receiver spots. In fact, you’d have to go nine names deep in last year’s catch statistics to find someone coming back to line up as a WR in 2012. That doesn’t mean, however, that the staff isn’t high on the position. Marcus Sullivan (5-9, 195, SO-1L) redshirted a year ago but can be a main cog in the passing game with the speed he showed off in 2010. Devante Davis (6-3, 200, SO-1L) had four receptions for 42 yards as a rookie and offers great size. Local product Taylor Spencer (6-1, 210, SO-1L) will have an opportunity to make a big impact in his third year while veteran Trey Mays (5-10, 175, SR-2L) and the aforementioned Eric Johnson are also in the mix.

SULLIVAN

HAUCK SAYS: “It looks like we will have some speed and athleticism at wideout this year. It will be nice to have some players that are good with the football, can stretch the field and can turn short throws into big gains. One thing I’ve enjoyed seeing from this group is that they are fearless going inside to get the ball between the hashes and they are avid participants in the run game. Even though this group lacks experience, it could be a strength for our offense.”

CORNETT

RANDLE

are next in line heading into fall. Robert Waterman (6-2, 290, SO-1L) took over the center spot and went on to start every game in the middle, not allowing a sack in Mountain West play to cap his impressive freshman campaign. Brian Roth (6-5, 300, SO-1L) is listed at No. 2 in the middle. HAUCK SAYS: “The O-line is the most veteran group on the field for us at any position because we have two senior starters. We expect them to lead the team. Certainly having the three guys who started as freshmen last year being sophomores, gives us experience, which is a relative term around here. I like this group and I think that we’ll be able to run the football and thus be a factor in games.” ZISMANN

THE DEFENSE

TIGHT ENDS/FULLBACKS

A year ago Rebel tight ends caught a total of 25 passes and one score. Expect those numbers to change after a changing of the guard. With last year’s tight ends now graduated, a trio of Hauck recruits suited up at the spot during spring practice and showed onlookers why the position looks to have a bigger role moving forward. Redshirt Jake Phillips (66, 245, FR-RS) is listed first on the depth chart and is followed closely by grayshirt Nick Gstrein (6-4, 275, FR-HS) and another redshirt, Tyler Bergsten (6-4, 240, FR-RS). Converted linebacker William Vea (6-0, 230, SO-1L) is the leader at FB while a pair of walk-ons, Max Johnson (6-1, 235, JR-2L) and Darius Andres (5-10, 215, FR-RS) will add depth. VEA

HAUCK SAYS: “All of our tight ends are freshmen but all three of them showed great progress in the spring. At fullback, we’ve got guys that give us some depth at a position that we want to utilize in our offense.”

DEFENSIVE LINEMEN

Still lots to be decided here but it seems like there will be a bigger pool of talent this fall. The defensive ends emerging through spring included converted tight end Jordan Sparkman (6-6, 250, SO-1L; 5 TT), redshirt Samoan Sonny Sanitoa (6-3, 235, FR-RS) and midyear JC signee Parker Holloway (6-4, 240, JR-TR) out of Texas. Another Texan, Beau Brence (6-3, 255, SR-3L), is the veteran of the group while the wildcard is former USC signee James Boyd (6-5, 255, JR-TR), who tried his hand at quarterback before switching to defensive end just in time for the spring game. That was enough for one prominent preview magazine to list the midyear signee from West Los Angeles College to its preseason All-Mountain GASTON West third team. The middle features some familiar faces as Alex Klorman (6-2, 270, JR-2L; 21 TT, 1 SCK) and Tyler Gaston (6-3, 290, JR-2L; 21 TT; 2 SCK) are joined by senior Trent Allmang-Wilder (6-6, 290, SR-1L; 19 TT, 1.5 TFL). HAUCK SAYS: “Trying to predict how our defensive line will play is a big projection. They need to come through and I think they could be a strength. However, there is a lot of work to be done for them to be ready to match up with a Big Ten football team (in the season opener vs. Minnesota).”

The defensive side will also see some changes on the sidelines as third-year DB coach J.D. Williams was elevated to coordinator while the staff’s only new face, Tim Hundley, came over from UCLA to oversee the Rebel inside linebackers. The maneuvering is part of an on-going process to put a defensive group together that will help keep the team in games every time the Rebels take the field. “What we said from day one here was that we have to develop a defensive mindset in our program,” says Hauck. “We have to be aggressive. We have to tackle well and we have to continue to recruit defensive players. The good news is that we are finally starting to balance out our depth chart in the various positions. Our defense must be physical and play with attitude.”

The squad’s leading returning tackler could also be its most talented in 2012 as former JC transfer John Lotulelei (6-0, 235, SR-1L) looks for a big senior season after taking over a starting spot late in the year and finishing with 60 total tackles and 3 TFL. He’s listed No. 1 on the weakside while veteran Tani Maka (6-1, 240, JR-2L; 54 TT), who tied for the team lead with two interceptions, is the leader at the middle position. The strongside features a battle between Las Vegas native Tim Hasson (6-2, 215, JR-2L; 46 TT, 1 TFL), who took over as a starter halfway through his sophomore season, and high-energy defender Princeton Jackson (6-0, 210, SR-1L; 39 TT, 2 SCK), who is a former first team JC All-American out of Blinn College. Las Vegan Eric Tuiloma-Va’a (6-0, 200, JR-2L) and converted QB Taylor Barnhill (6-4, 240, SO-1L) round out the spring two-deep. HAUCK SAYS: “Like our offensive line, the linebackers are a veteran group with seniors and juniors challenging to be starters. We need this group to be highly productive and lead the way for our defense.”

DEFENSIVE BACKS

THE SPECIAL TEAMS

There is just one returning starter in the Rebel secondary this season as the cornerbacks are headlined by potential honors candidate Sidney Hodge (5-8, 175, JR-2L; 53 TT, 8 PBU) out of Las Vegas, who tied for fourth in the nation a year ago with four fumble recoveries. Exhibit A in proving Hodge’s leadership potential is his earning the honor of wearing the program’s Battle Born Jersey No. 36 this fall. Kenneth Penny (5-11, 170, SO-1L; 9 TT) is listed atop the other CB spot while veteran Kenny Brown (5-10, 175, SR-2L; 11 TT) and nice-sized redshirt Fred Wilson (6-0, 175, FR-RS) will vie for time. Strong safety features Tajh Hasson (6-1, 190, SO-1L; 17 TT, 1 FR) and tall youngster Kenny Keys (6-4, 185, FR-RS). Promising redshirt Peni Vea (6-1, 195, FR-RS) is the leader at free safety while former Minnesota signee Dre Crawford (6-0, 185, SR-TR) will have just one season to make his mark as a Rebel.

The squad will enjoy the return of both its starting place-kicker and punter, which is a big reason Lindy’s ranked it the No. 1 special teams unit in the Mountain West heading into 2012. Las Vegan Nolan Kohorst (6-0, 175, JR-2L) came on strong late to finish 9-of-14 in his field-goal attempts while nailing all 24 of his extra-point attempts en route to leading the team in scoring with 51 points. Former JC transfer Chase Lansford (6-2, 195, SR-1L) provided a big upgrade at the punter position, finishing ranked 48th nationally with an average of 41.2 yards per attempt. The son of former NFL kicker Mike Lansford also split time with Kohorst kicking off for the Rebels. UNLV was a force in the kickoff return game, ranking 24th in the nation in average and taking two back for touchdowns. The return of 2010 KOR leader Marcus Sullivan, who redshirted last year, is a big positive. Punt returns, however, were a different story as the team averaged under five yards an attempt. There are plenty of candidates to help improve that number but look for Eric Johnson to make a big push for the job.

HAUCK SAYS: “The secondary is a real unknown. The only player with substantial playing experience is Sidney Hodge at cornerback. We need to lean on him to shut down his side of the field. Beyond him it looks like it will be up to some younger players to carry the load in the defensive backfield.”

HAUCK SAYS: “We get both our kicker and punter back. They both desire to be the guy who plays both positions so there is a good competition going there. Kickoff return has been a strength for us. Punt return has not been good enough but we should now have the ability to get the ball in the hands of some good ball-carriers who can take care of the ball, be fearless and make some big plays.”

THE SCHEDULE UNLV’s 13-game schedule, which will be played without a bye week, will see the Rebels open with four straight home dates for the first time since 1973 when they were a Division II school. The 45th season of football at the school kicks off Thursday Aug. 30 with the first appearance in Las Vegas by Minnesota. The Golden Gophers will be only the third Big Ten Conference team to ever play in Las Vegas, following a 2001 visit from Northwestern and five trips to Sam Boyd Stadium by Wisconsin. On Sept. 8, UNLV hosts Big Sky Conference member Northern Arizona for the first time since 1992. Overall, the two programs, which are located just 250 miles apart, have met seven times with the Rebels holding a 5-2 lead in the series. All but the most recent game took place during the 1970s. After the Lumberjacks play here, Pac-12 Conference member Washington State returns last year’s game by making its second-ever Las Vegas appearance and first since 1991. This one will be part of a special Friday night ESPN broadcast on Sept. 14. The Rebels open Mountain West play the following weekend by hosting Air Force on Sept. 22. The next week will mark a stretch of four away games in five weeks for the team, starting with a trip to Utah State on Sept. 29 for the first meeting with the Aggies since 2008. A week later, UNLV heads to defending WAC champion Louisiana Tech in Ruston on Oct. 6. The Rebels and Bulldogs have met only twice before when UNLV swept a two-game series in 1993-94. The 38th edition of the Battle for the Fremont Cannon will be waged when the Rebels host Nevada, Reno on Oct. 13. With the Wolf Pack joining the Mountain West in 2012, it will mark only the fifth time the two state rivals will meet as part of league play and first time since 1995 when both were members of the Big West Conference. An Oct. 20 game at Boise State will be UNLV’s first trip to play the Broncos since 1977. That will be followed by a game at San Diego State on Oct. 27 that will see the Rebels play the Aztecs before the month of November for the first time since 2005. UNLV returns home to host New Mexico on Nov. 3, plays at Colorado State on Nov. 10 and closes out its home schedule with a visit from Wyoming on Nov. 17. The regular season wraps on Nov. 24 with a trip to play another first-year Mountain West member, Hawai’i. HAUCK SAYS: “I like the early games we have scheduled at home but it does lead to playing on the road four out of five weeks. The middle of our schedule features a tough stretch against six straight opponents that played in bowl games last year but we’re determined to work hard at making this a season our team and fans can enjoy and be proud of.”

Bobby Hauck, the winningest coach in Division One FCS, was hired as the 10th head coach in Rebel football history on Dec. 23, 2009, and immediately charged with spreading an attitude of success and discipline throughout a program thirsting for prosperity. 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 gauntlet with a 2-11 overall record but tied for sixth place in the Mountain West. Last fall’s squad also finished sixth after a 2-10 campaign. 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 (both in average victories per year and overall titles), Hauck earned at least a share of the league’s crown 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 over his last four seasons were 51-6 overall and 31-1 in conference play. “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.” Hauck, 48, 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. A veteran of eight bowl games, he also brought with him tremendous FBS experience from stints coaching in both the Pac-10 and Big 12 conferences. “The future of Rebel Football is bright,” Hauck said. “I’m excited


HEAD COACH BOBBY HAUCK to be a part of the process building UNLV Football into a winner. I enjoy working every day with this group of players and coaches, as well as our administration.” Hauck immediately caught the attention of his new community when he announced a 2010 recruiting class that included the most Southern Nevada signees (eight) in program history. The overall group boasted 10 players who were assigned at least three stars by either Scout, Rivals or

ASSISTANT COACHES J.D. WILLIAMS

WILLIAMS

J.D. Williams was named UNLV’s defensive coordinator in 2012 and continues to oversee the team’s secondary.

SIGNEE PROFILES 2012 UNLV SIGNING CLASS

Head coach Bobby Hauck’s third recruiting class at UNLV was made up of primarily high school players as a list of 20 future Rebels was announced in February. The group boasts nine players that were assigned at least three stars by either Scout.com, Rivals.com or ESPNU, which is just one behind the school record set in 2010. The recruits list, which does not include grayshirts who signed a year ago but joined the program in January as true freshmen, features 18 high school players and two junior-college players, just one year after inking a class that included eight JC signees. “We want to build this program primarily around high school studentathletes for a multitude of reasons,” Hauck said. “One of those is because we believe it adds stability and long-term opportunity for success. We also see the academic success rate of high school athletes being substantially higher. That being said, we’re not opposed to junior-college transfers and we are excited about the two young men who signed with us. We feel that JC guys that come in at midyear have a much better opportunity for success.” The group consists of student-athletes whose hometowns are spread among six states and one Canadian province: 10 from California, three from Nevada, three from Texas and one each from Arizona, Washington, Oregon and British Columbia. “We’ve always said that we’ll go wherever we need to go to put together a good class and this year we had good luck not only in Nevada, Texas and California, but the Northwest was good to us as well. We took three players out of the Northwest that we consider to be top-notch prospects. We feel like we stole those three and we’re proud of those guys for sticking with us. On the local front, to my knowledge, there were eight Division I NLI signees from Las Vegas. We offered scholarships to all eight. Three of them signed at UNLV, so I’m happy to say that nearly 40 percent of all Division I signees in Las Vegas signed with the Rebels.”

After falling behind again, Herring found never yielded, scoring the final two touchdowns Payne from eight yards out for a catch that not on long drives engineered by sophomore QB Caleb Herring.

WAR D S


2011 SEASON IN REVIEW to seal the thrilling victory. Remarkably, the 38-35 final marked the program’s first outing under Hauck -- win or lose -- that was decided by 14 points or less. The team’s reward for the big league win? Just a visit from the fifth-ranked team in the land as Boise State came to town to play UNLV for the first time since the Bicentennial. Coming into GAME EIGHT as six-touchdown favorites, the Broncos instead soon found out the Rebels were worthy competitors. Dionza Bradford’s Purvis returned more kickoffs for more yards 13-yard rushing score and Michael than anyone in UNLV and Johnson’s 33-yard touchdown catch MW history. were part of the hosts going toe-to-toe with BSU through the first half. The Broncos needed a Kellen Moore TD pass with 25 seconds left in the second to take a lead into halftime. Not surprisingly, Moore was ultimately the difference in the game as he would finish with five touchdown passes on the night en route to breaking Colt McCoy’s NCAA record for most career wins under center. BSU pulled away in the second half in the 48-21 final that would give Moore victory number 46. Heading to Albuquerque the next week, UNLV started its third QB of the season as redshirt sophomore Taylor Barnhill got the call as Herring was unavailable because of injury for GAME NINE. The Rebels ran up and down the field against New Mexico as their 286 net yards were the most on the ground in four years. However, a late turnover -- the first by UNLV in 10 quarters -- led to the Lobos’ game-winning score in the disappointing 21-14 defeat. After Air Force flew by UNLV in GAME 10, the Rebels said goodbye to their class of seniors by hosting San Diego State during Thanksgiving weekend in GAME 11. Cornett rushed for touchdowns of 54 and 25 yards as the Rebels built a 14-0 lead. In fact, the sophomore back would finish with a career-high 136 yards on just 14 carries but the Aztecs scored 31 straight points to win. A last-ever road trip to play future Big XII team and 17th-ranked TCU resulted in a 56-9 loss but was made memorable by what happened before the game kicked off. Former Rebel linebacker Bryce Saldi, who is a graduate of nearby Southlake Carroll High School, returned to the football field for the first time since suffering a serious head injury while on vacation in 2009. The tough Texan has been rehabilitating at his Metroplex home and served as one of his team’s captains during the pregame coin toss for what would have been his final collegiate game. A trio of Rebel 2011 seniors went on to play in postseason all-star games -- Payne, Bell and DB Quinton Pointer. And while no UNLV players were part of the NFL Draft, Payne (Chargers), Pointer (Rams) and Purvis (49ers) all signed free-agent deals.

This catch tied the UNLV record for receiving TDs. The bottom photo shows the record-breaker from the same game vs. CSU.

PAYNE LEAVES AS REBELS’ TD CATCH KING

In his 39th game as a Rebel on Oct. 29, 2011, vs. Colorado State, UNLV senior WR Phillip Payne became his school’s career leader in receiving touchdowns with 25. He added to his record with another score vs. Boise State on Nov. 5. The Las Vegas native, who finished 10th among all active players in 2011 with a total of 26, caught two scores vs. the Rams to tie and then move ahead of Henry Bailey (24 from 1991-94) for first place all-time at the school and third in MW history. The Western High School product, who signed a free-agent contract with the NFL’s San Diego Chargers, left ranked fifth all-time at UNLV with 171 receptions and eighth at the school with 2,295 yards. In 2009, 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 (Sam “Disco Kid” Greene 1980).

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Bobby Hauck figured UNLV wasn’t ready for a major upset like the Rebels pulled in 2003 against Wisconsin. Still, he was satisfied with how his team rebounded after taking a first-half flurry in UNLV’s 51-17 loss to No. 11 Wisconsin on Thursday night. New starting quarterback Caleb Herring posted two second-half touchdown passes that cut the lead to 51-17 in the fourth. He kept plays alive with his feet and showed poise under relentless pressure, but didn’t have many options and finished 18-of-27 passing for 146 yards. UNLV failed to convert on its first nine third-downs, and one second-quarter sequence highlighted the Rebels’ struggles. Wide receiver Phillip Payne committed a 15-yard personal foul for a late hit, center Robert Waterman snapped the ball over Herring’s head for an eight-yard loss, Payne dropped a pass with no defender nearby and Nolan Kohorst pulled a 52-yard field goal wide left. Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes and ran for another in his Wisconsin debut and Montee Ball scored four times for the Badgers, who built a 51-3 lead. All the attention was on Wilson, the North Carolina State transfer who is using his last year of eligibility at Wisconsin. UNLV (0-1) had some good moments. Herring’s two second-half touchdown passes forced the Badgers to send most of their first-team defense back on the field in the fourth quarter. In some ways it was a typical Wisconsin opener. The Badgers scored on their first drive of the season for the sixth straight year. In some ways, it was very different: the temperature at kickoff was 90 degrees. Wisconsin (1-0) made it 13-0 when Ball took a handoff, busted through two arm tackles and highstepped to avoid Quinton Pointer’s desperation dive for a 22-yard touchdown. It was 20-0 when Wilson found top target Nick Toon for completions of 39 and 15 yards before James White punched it into the end zone from a yard out. Ball, who finished with 63 yards rushing, also scored on a pair of one-yard runs, making it 51-3 midway through the third quarter. Kohorst hit a 37-yard field goal, but Wilson dropped back to pass on the next possession, broke to the right and saw no pursuit behind him for his 46-yard TD scamper as the Badgers led 37-3 at halftime after a field goal.

7 PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - Marshall Lobbestael threw for career highs of 361 yards and five touchdowns as Washington State beat UNLV 59-7. Washington State (2-0) scored touchdowns on its first five possessions and held a 35-0 lead at halftime to win its first two games of the season for the first time since 2005. Lobbestael, who took over as starter after Jeff Tuel suffered a fractured collarbone last week, completed 24 of 32 passes. The fifth-year senior was not intercepted. UNLV (0-2) was scoreless until Tim Cornett’s 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter. The Rebels gained just 158 yards and could not stop the WSU offense, which produced 610 yards. Backup quarterback Connor Halliday threw a pair of late touchdown passes for WSU, giving them seven for the game. UNLV quarterback Caleb Herring completed just 11-of-20 passes for 60 yards. Marquess Wilson caught five passes for 102 yards and a touchdown for WSU. Jared Karstetter had six receptions for 66 yards and two touchdowns. This one was over early, as Rickey Galvin ran 48 yards for a touchdown on WSU’s opening drive. Galvin finished with 80 yards on five carries. On WSU’s second possession, Karstetter caught a five-yard touchdown pass from Lobbestael to cap a 74-yard drive for a 14-0 Cougars’ lead. On WSU’s third possession, Lobbestael completed passes of 22 and 37 yards to Wilson, then hit a diving Karstetter for a 19-yard touchdown strike in the end zone. At that point Lobbestael had completed nine of his first 10 passes for 145 yards. The Rebels, meanwhile, managed only 41 yards in the first quarter and their first three drives ended in punts. Lobbestael led the Cougars’ on an 80-yard drive on their fourth possession, and threaded the ball through a pair of defenders to hit Isiah Barton in the end zone for a 21-yard touchdown pass. Just over three minutes later, Lobbestael hit tight end Andrei Lintz on a 23-yard touchdown pass to close first half scoring. Lobbestael completed 18-of-21 passes for 274 yards in the first half, and WSU had 372 total yards in the first half while holding UNLV to 95 yards. This was the first meeting between the two programs since 1991.

LAS VEGAS - Caleb Herring connected on a pair of touchdowns passes to Phillip Payne and the UNLV defense stymied the Hawai’i offense in a thrilling 40-20 win in the 2011 home opener at Sam Boyd Stadium Saturday night. The Rebels forced four fumbles on the night, resulting in 13 points en route to a spectacular defensive performance. After opening the game with a three and out, UNLV punted and took advantage of the first Hawai’i miscue of the night, recovering a fumble at the 45-yard line. Nine plays later the Rebels got on the board with a 40-yard field goal by Nolan Kohorst. Those points marked the first time in the Bobby Hauck era that the Rebels had struck first in a game. Following a Hawai’i punt, the Rebels took over on their own 20 with just over two minutes to go in the opening quarter. Tim Cornett needed just one carry to extend the Rebel lead to 10-0, breaking off an 80-yard touchdown run down the sideline. Cornett finished the game with 106 yards and two touchdowns, marking his first 100-yard effort in Rebel Red. Herring found Payne from six yards out to make it 17-0. The catch capped a 10-play, 71-yard drive for UNLV. The Warriors cut the lead to 17-7 after Bryant Moniz found Justin Clapp from 10 yards out with 6:11 remaining in the first half. Hawai’i fumbled the second-half kick, allowing the Rebels to set up shop on the Warriors’ 33-yard line. One play and a memorable catch in traffic by Payne quickly made it 24-7 in favor of UNLV. Payne, who moved into second place on the all-time touchdown receptions list and 10th on the all-time receiving yards list finished the night with seven catches for 98 yards. The Warriors’ third fumble of the night led to Kohorst’s second field goal of the game, a 50-yarder, making the score to 27-7. Clapp caught his second touchdown of the night to bring the score to 27-14, but the Rebels responded with an 11-play, 80-yard drive with Cornett taking it in from a yard out to push the lead to 33-14. The Rebels’ final score of the night -- a one-yard run by Bradley Randle -- put the game out of reach at 40-14 with just over five minutes to go in the fourth. Hawai’i would add a late touchdown to bring the final count to 40-20. Defensively, the Rebels were led by Sidney Hodge, who totaled six tackles and a fumble recovery. Will Chandler had two tackles, a sack and a forced fumble on the night.

LAS VEGAS - Starting quarterback Caleb Herring threw three interceptions that were returned for touchdowns as UNLV dropped a game to an NCAA FCS team for the first time since 1994, falling to Southern Utah, 41-16 Saturday night at Sam Boyd Stadium. The Rebels (1-3) took an early 7-0 lead after holder Mike Clausen found Austin Harrington from 23 yards out on a fake field goal on UNLV’s second drive. Daniel Harper’s first-quarter interception marked the first of the year for him and just the second for the UNLV defense. The Rebels lined up five plays later with first-and-goal from the one, but following a pass interference call that backed them up to the 16-yard line, Herring was sacked and fumbled the ball away. Colton Cook’s 35-yard field goal early in the second quarter gave the Thunderbirds the 10-7 lead. UNLV’s Nolan Kohorst would knot the game at 10-10 with a 45-yarder with 10 seconds remaining in the half. The Rebel offensive miscues continued at the start of the second half with Herring throwing his second interception, returned by Nick Witzmann 35 yards for the score, giving SUU the 16-10 edge. Austin Minefee’s six-yard touchdown run with just over seven minutes left in the third pushed the lead to 24-10. Minefee would add a second touchdown in the fourth quarter before finishing with 61 yards on the night. Erron Vonner’s interception return put SUU ahead 41-10, sealing the win for the visiting Thunderbirds. UNLV added a late touchdown when Herring found Phillip Payne from 19 yards out. Payne finished with a career-high numbers for both receptions (13) and yards receiving (175). Nate Carter led the Rebel defense with seven total tackles, including one for a loss. Tani Maka finished with one tackle and an interception in the first quarter, marking the first of the year for UNLV.

RENO - The Wolf Pack offense overcame five turnovers and racked up 699 yards of total offense en route to their seventh straight win in the Battle for the Fremont Cannon, defeating UNLV by a 37-0 mark in UNR’s home opener at Mackay Stadium. The dual quarterback threat of Tyler Lantrip and Cody Farjado accounted for 459 yards of passing and three touchdowns on the night. The Rebels could not capitalize after taking the ball away from UNR on each of the first two Wolf Pack drives, going three and out after each takeaway. After forcing the third straight three and out from UNLV, the Wolf Pack capped a 14-play, 68yard drive with a 29-yard Allen Hardison field goal late in the first quarter to take a 3-0 lead. UNR increased its lead to 10-0 with just over seven minutes remaining in the second quarter after Lantrip hit Rishard Matthews for a 90-yard strike down the far sideline. Matthews would finish the night with 10 catches for 220 yards and the second-quarter score. Lantrip wasn’t done though, finding Corbin Louks for a 34-yard touchdown strike with just over a minute remaining in the first half, pushing the lead to 17-0. UNR made it 20-0 on Hardison’s second field goal of the night, this time from 41 yards out with just 17 seconds left on the clock in the opening half. Hardison added his third field goal of the night late in the third quarter, connecting from 22 yards out to make it a 23-0 game. Lantrip’s third touchdown pass of the night came just under two minutes into the fourth quarter, connecting with Shane Anderson from 32 yards out. Lampford Mark punched it in from four yards out to round out the UNR scoring late in the fourth. Dionza Bradford rushed for 79 yards on 18 carries for the Rebels, who gained just 110 yards of total offense. Austin Harrington caught the only completion of the night from Caleb Herring, a gain of eight yards on UNLV’s final drive. The UNLV defense was led by Tani Maka who totaled a game-high 13 tackles, including one for a loss. Will Chandler, Mike Clausen and Quinton Pointer each had an interception. Pointer also tallied seven tackles, two forced fumbles and a pass breakup. Lineman Tyler Gaston finished the game with three tackles, including a sack and two for a loss.

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Kellen Moore threw five touchdown passes to become college football’s winningest quarterback and No. 5 Boise State brushed off a first-half scare from UNLV, 48-21. During the first half, the Broncos looked nothing like the 41-point favorites Las Vegas experts thought they were. Two of their three firsthalf touchdowns were set up by UNLV mistakes. After Boise jumped out to a quick 7-0 lead, UNLV answered right back when Dionza Bradford capped the Rebels’ ensuing drive with a 13-yard touchdown. Early in the second quarter, Boise State blocked a punt and took over needing 40 yards to score. Less than two minutes later, Moore hit Miller for a 30-yard touchdown. Once again, the Rebels fought right back and finished a 10-play drive when Caleb Herring connected with Michael Johnson for a 33-yard score to tie it up at 14-14. Herring finished 12-of-17 for 117 yards and the one touchdown. Just before halftime, UNLV was called for pass interference and penalized 15 yards, setting up first-and-goal for the Broncos with just over a minute left. Three plays later, Moore found Miller again for a five-yard score. At the break, each team had run 32 offensive plays, but UNLV had 198 yards compared with 161 for Boise State. UNLV coach Bobby Hauck said he was happier with his team’s play in the first half, but it still missed opportunities. Moore threw two touchdowns each to Tyler Shoemaker and Matt Miller, racking up 224 yards through the air on 18-of-31 passing despite leaving the game early in the fourth quarter. The victory gave Moore 46 career wins, one more than former Texas star Colt McCoy. Moore, in his fourth year as Boise State’s starting quarterback, is 46-2, tops all-time among FBS quarterbacks in winning percentage (95.8 percent). Stanford’s Andrew Luck is second at 85.3 percent (29-5). Boise State (8-0, 3-0) pulled away from UNLV during the second half, as Moore found Shoemaker streaking past UNLV’s secondary in the middle of the field for a 51-yard touchdown with 8:37 left in the third quarter. On their next possession, the Broncos faked a punt on fourth-and-8, snapping the ball to J.C. Percy and letting him run 20 yards before he was tackled at the UNLV 31-yard line. Shoemaker then gave Moore his fifth touchdown as the fourth quarter began by managing to catch a ball that had been deflected in the end zone by a UNLV defender. DJ Harper and Drew Wright added rushing touchdowns for the Broncos in the fourth quarter. Bradford finished the game with 46 yards on 16 carries for UNLV and Bradley Randle racked up 96 yards on just 10 carries. The matchup was the first between the teams since the 1970s.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Demarcus Rogers scored a two-yard touchdown with 1:15 left Saturday as New Mexico defeated UNLV 21-14 for its first victory of the season. Rogers’ run capped a 34-yard drive set up by Jaymar Latchison’s fumble recovery with 1:58 remaining. New Mexico (1-9, 1-4 Mountain West) opened the game with an 80-yard touchdown catch-and-run from wide receiver Deon Long, then Rogers added a one-yard touchdown midway through the first quarter as the Lobos topped their first-quarter scoring output for the entire season. Crusoe Gongbay had a career-high 93 yards on 13 carries for New Mexico, while quarterback B.R. Holbrook was 15-of-23 for 274 yards. UNLV’s Dionza Bradford rushed for a career-high 152 yards on 20 carries, but the Rebels (2-7, 1-3) could only manage 61 yards through the air. Rebel quarterback Taylor Barnhill got his first start of the season in place of injured Caleb Herring and rushed for 77 yards in 17 carries while connecting on 7-of-10 passes for 54 yards. Quinton Pointer led the Rebels on the defensive side, totaling nine tackles, including one for a loss and a pass breakup. James Dunlap added two sacks and eight total tackles, pushing his season sack total to a team-leading 6.5.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Bradley Randle rushed for 71 yards to lead UNLV, which lost 56-9 to TCU in the season finale. UNLV (2-10, 1-6 MW) led 3-0 after Nolan Kohorst kicked a 39-yard field goal with 5:35 left in the first quarter before TCU scored 21 unanswered points. Waymon James, Matthew Tucker and Ed Wesley all ran for touchdowns for TCU (10-2, 7-0 MW), which won its last 24 games in that league before moving to the Big 12 Conference next season. Casey Pachall and Matt Brown both scored on quarterback keepers on the rainsoaked field. Pachall dropped back to pass, then tucked and ran straight forward for an eight-yard touchdown, plunging through two defenders to get into the end zone. James had a 10-yard TD run, when he went to the right sideline, planted his right foot and then lunged forward with his left hand extended holding the football. Then on the first play after Deryck Gildon blocked a punt, Tucker took a handoff and scored on a 32-yard run when at least five defenders got their hands on him without bringing him down. After Kohorst kicked a 43-yard field goal with 2:13 left in the first half, TCU followed with two big plays for a 35-6 halftime lead. Greg McCoy, who already had a kickoff return for a touchdown earlier in the season, backpedaled to field the ball just in front of the goal line and then took off. He ran through a group of players on the left side before breaking into the open and sprinting all the way down the field. When the Rebels got the ball back, senior linebacker Gardner picked off a pass by Taylor Barnhill and went untouched into the end zone. James scored on a two-yard run to cap TCU’s opening drive of the second half, and Wesley later had a nine-yard run.

Interceptions: (TCU) Gardner 1-16-1.

REBEL BOWL HISTORY

S

till the winningest team in UNLV Division I history at 112 overall, the 1984 squad earned the school its first bowl bid and went on to beat Toledo 30-13 in the California Bowl. The first Big West team to ever win seven league games, Coach Harvey Hyde’s Rebels lost only a close game at Hawaii and to 10th-ranked SMU in the regular-season finale, the night Randall Cunningham’s No. 12 jersey was retired at halftime. Not surprisingly, UNLV swept the league’s postseason honors with Offensive Player of the Year Cunningham, Defensive Co-Player of the Year Aaron Moog and Coach of the Year Hyde. UNLV took on an 8-2-1 Mid-American Conference Champion Toledo squad in the fourth California Bowl in front of a national ESPN audience. The Rebels won impressively, 30-13, though the game was later ruled technically forfeited by the conference because of the use of academically ineligible players during the season, none of whom played in the bowl game. The Rebels broke the game open with 17 third-quarter points led by Cunningham’s passing and the running of a freshman from Fresno named Elbert “Ickey” Woods. Cunningham’s 270 yards through the air helped him earn MVP honors. Just a few months later the lanky QB became a second-round choice of the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1985 NFL Draft. Woods went on to lead the nation in rushing in 1987 with 1,658 yards before “shuffling” off to Cincinnati as a second-round pick in 1988.

California Bowl MVP Randall Cunningham threw for two touchdowns and ran for another.

ppearing in its first bowl game in a decade, UNLV blasted Mid-American Conference opponent Central Michigan in the second meeting of the year between the two clubs. Playing it up for a national television audience on ESPN, the Rebels (7-5), who racked up 589 yards in offense (the most by any ’94 bowl team) jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead over the Chippewas (9-3). Not even two minutes had passed in the first quarter when Henry Bailey, the Rebels’ career receiving leader, exploded for a 46-yard touchdown reception from Jared Brown. The strike was the first of four UNLV touchdowns longer than 30 yards on the night. After the Chips pulled to 14-10, the Rebel offensive machine continued to roll and UNLV pulled away for good on a 15-yard fumble return for a TD by defensive end Keith Washington. UNLV eventually cruised to a 52-10 lead before clearing the bench. Las Vegas Bowl III MVP Bailey, soon to be a Pittsburgh Steelers draftee, rushed for 79 yards on seven carries with three TDs, and accumulated 101 yards receiving with one score. Sophomore RB DeJohn Branch had a sparkling performance, carrying the ball 13 times for 125 yards, and Brown finished the game 11-for-21 for 195 yards with two TDs and 32 yards rushing. UNLV coach Jeff Horton was named the Big West Conference Co-Coach of the Year for turning a 3-8 team in ’93 into league and bowl champions in his first season.

REBEL BOWL HISTORY

P

laying before a national ESPN2 audience and a Las Vegas Bowl-record 29,113 fans, UNLV (8-5) won its fourth straight for the first time since 1984 and moved to 3-0 all-time in bowl games with a surprisingly one-sided 31-14 victory over Arkansas (6-6), the Rebels’ first over a team from the powerful Southeastern Conference. UNLV quarterback Jason Thomas earned MVP honors by completing 12 of 17 pass attempts for 217 yards and three scores without an interception as well as rushing for 32 yards on 10 carries. Thomas’ favorite target was Nate Turner, who ended his career with 126 yards on eight catches – all in the first half. Jeremi Rudolph gained 92 yards on 14 carries and Kevin Brown had 78 on 13 attempts. Arkansas, which was fresh from two consecutive victories over ranked SEC opponents to become bowl eiligible, opened the scoring with the only points of the first quarter. UNLV answered with a Thomas-to-Turner 19-yard pass, which was the first TD given up by the Razorbacks in 11 quarters. Two minutes later the Hogs used Robby Hampton’s second scoring throw of the game to take a 14-7 lead. UNLV, however, struck again to square things before halftime with a five-yard Turner TD. Things stayed tied until with just over two minutes left in the third, Thomas found Troy Mason with a stunning 54-yard TD strike that was the second longest in bowl history. After a Dillon Pieffer field goal put UNLV up 24-14, the Razorbacks elected to go for it on fourth and 10 from the Rebel 37 with more than 12 minutes remaining. The UNLV defense forced an incompletion and the inspired Rebels eventually closed their shocking 24-point scoring run with an 18-yard Brown run. The Rebels out-gained the bigger Hogs, who had defeated seven straight non-conference opponents and were 6-0 vs. MW teams, 476 to 298. UNLV also held its opponent to under 200 yards rushing (115) for the 12th time in 2000. The Rebels, who moved to 2-0 in Las Vegas Bowls, earned their most victories in a season since 1984 and finished the season a perfect 6-0 at Sam Boyd Stadium. Head Coach John Robinson improved to 8-1 in bowl games during his career, which made him the winningest bowl coach in NCAA D-I history with a percentage of .889. “This is particularly gratifying because our guys were at their best,” Robinson said during the post-game celebration.

MVP Jason Thomas (center) threw for 217 yards and three touchdowns.

REBELS IN THE PROS CUNNINGHAM HEADS UNLV’S NFL ALUMNI Still the career passing and punting leader at UNLV, Randall Cunningham left his school as its most accomplished player and went on to become one of the top quarterbacks in NFL history. Before Michael Vick and Donovan McNabb there was Randall. A national figure who broke the racial barrier at his position, Cunningham augmented his cannon arm and booming punting leg by re-defining the running ability of a pro quarterback and remains the league’s all-time rushing QB with 4,928 yards. Rising to stardom with the team that drafted him 37th overall in 1985 - Philadelphia - Cunningham went on to play 11 seasons with the Eagles, three with the Vikings, one with the Cowboys and his final two with the Ravens. The four-time Pro Bowl invitee won Most Outstanding Player honors in the 1989 game after leading the NFC to a 34-3 blowout. Joining Johnny Unitas as the only three-time winners of the Bert Bell Award, which goes to the league’s top player, Cunningham was also named the NFL Player of the Year in 1998 after leading Minnesota to the league’s best record and engineering what was the highest scoring offense in history. The Las Vegas resident retired, symbolically, as an Eagle, in 2002 but still ranks in the top 40 in league annals in passing yards, TDs and completions.

Although most famous for his time with the Eagles, Randall Cunningham won NFL Player of the Year honors while leading the Vikings.

September 22 UNLV shuts out a conference opponent for only the second time in history while also breaking an 11-year losing skid in league openers. Powered by Frank “The Tank” Summers’ 190 rushing yards, the 27-0 victory was the first over Utah since 1979. October 13 UNLV hosts its school-record third sellout of the season and the biggest-ever crowd to see it play a conference opponent at home when 38,026 watch BYU win 24-14. UNLV would break multiple attendance records on the year, including playing in front of an average crowd of 29,281.

Wonder of Waco: Remembering “The Return” Did it really happen? Did 1999’s most memorable play in college football really take place on a muggy Sept. 11 night in Waco, Texas? Did UNLV really pull off something never before done to start 2-0 on the road for the first time in 25 years? Yes. Yes. And, surprisingly – no make that inexplicably, yes. UNLV made history by becoming the first team to win a college football game on the last play while trailing and without the ball. And it all happened because of one team’s intention to run up the score and another team’s refusal to allow it.

Host Baylor was leading the Rebels 24-21 with eight seconds left when it ran a rushing play to attempt to score again instead of simply downing the ball to end the game. After Bears running back Darrell Bush was stood up at the oneyard line by the Rebel defense, LB Tyler Brickell managed to force a fumble. DB Kevin Thomas picked up the ball in the end zone and, with no time on the clock, raced more than the length of the field to score his team’s winning points as UNLV prevailed 27-24. The shocking video showed up on everyone’s highlight show while UNLV announcer Tony Cordasco’s now-famous radio call repeatedly played

across the nation. It was only the third time in NCAA FBS history that a fumble had been returned 100 yards (interestingly, the second time came against UNLV at Rice just four games earlier in ‘98). In 2007, the play ranked 85th in ESPN.com’s Top 100 Defining Plays in College Football History.

Tyler Brickell (No. 48) stripped Baylor RB Darrell Bush just outside the end zone.

Kevin Thomas (No. 28) picked up the fumble and sprinted 100 yards the opposite way.

Thomas took the ball 100 yards and UNLV moved to 2-0.

“I started to walk over toward the middle of the field to (Baylor’s) bench,” UNLV Head Coach John Robinson said. “I knew (BU coach Kevin Steele) was in shock. They didn’t move. Their whole bench was just standing there like a painting.’’

October 10 Casey Flair passes Damon Williams for first place on the UNLV career receptions list with a catch at BYU. Flair, who would become the first four-year player in school history to record at least one catch in every game of his career (47), would see his reception record stand for only weeks before teammate Ryan Wolfe takes over the top spot. November 22 Despite a loss at SDSU that keeps the Rebels from going bowling, UNLV ties with Ohio State for the national lead in red-zone scoring at 95 percent, including earning points in its first 25 trips of the season inside the 20-yard line.

REBEL AWARD WINNERS 2007 MW DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR Beau Bell was a dominant force on his side of the ball in 2007, leading the league with 126 total tackles and five forced fumbles to go with 9.5 TFL and 3 sacks. He also led the team with four interceptions, including one at Wyoming that he returned for his first career TD. Bell became the first player in MW history to be named defensive player of the week three times in one season and left UNLV ranked second in all-time tackles with 320. The fourth Rebel ever to be invited to play in the Senior Bowl, Bell had eight double-digit tackle games as a senior and went on to become the top draft pick of the Cleveland Browns. 2006 MW FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR Ryan Wolfe’s first game as a collegian saw him catch six balls for 160 yards, including a 71-yard touchdown sprint. The rookie later proved it was no fluke when he hauled in nine receptions for a MW-freshmanrecord-tying 176 yards vs. New Mexico. He also posted 108 yards vs. Air Force to close the campaign. Named First Team Freshman All-America by the Football Writers Assoc. of America, Wolfe was UNLV’s first first team allconference receiver since 1997 after becoming the first freshman to ever lead the conference in receiving yards (911), which ranked 26th nationally. 2002 & 2003 MW DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR Hometown hero Jamaal Brimmer exploded onto the scene as a sophomore in 2002, including leading the MW with 17 tackles for loss and a squadleading 5.5 QB sacks. Hence, he was the pick of both the coaches and media for league MVP honors in.

2001 MW DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR The school’s first Division I AllAmerican on his side of the ball, cornerback Thomas wrapped up perhaps the finest defensive career in Rebel history by breaking the school and MW single-season record for interceptions with seven, leading the nation in both interception return yardage and defensive scoring after taking three balls back for touchdowns while also pacing the league

1998 WAC FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR (PACIFIC DIVISION) A true Hawaiian warrior, Sunia became the first freshman in school history voted team captain and went on to start all 11 games at MLB. Named First Team Freshman All-America by Football News after leading his team with 115 total tackles, Sunia would gain 119 takedowns a year later but spend his final two seasons suffering from various injuries that would keep him from breaking UNLV’s career tackle record. 1996 WAC FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR (MOUNTAIN DIVISION) Turning in arguably the best season by a freshman QB in FBS history, Denton shattered 10 NCAA freshman records and 10 other school marks for a team that won only one game. His nine 200-yard passing games included a school-record 503-yard performance vs. SDSU while his JON DENTON 3,591 yards and 25 TDs passing were NCAA single-season records for a frosh. On pace to shatter every conceivable UNLV passing record, the DENTON-ATOR would play only one more season before transferring to Eastern Kentucky. 1987 PCAA OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR Saving the best for last, Elbert “Ickey” Woods gained only 267 yards his first three seasons. As a senior he proceeded to lead the nation in rushing with 1,658 yards on 259 carries (6.4 YPC) and put in 10 touchdowns. He tied a school record with seven consecutive 100yard games, including an incredible three straight over 200. The next spring he would become the highest drafted Rebel in history at No. 31 overall and go on to lead the Cincinnati Bengals to the Super Bowl behind his signature Ickey Shuffle. 1983 & 1984 PCAA OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR The first two-time league MVP for the Rebels, Randall Cunningham was an All-American punter and future NFL star at quarterback. The school’s career passing leader RANDALL threw for 2,545 yards, 18 TDs and 8 INTs in 1983 and followed CUNNINGHAM only that up with 2,628 yards, 24 TDs and 10 INTs in a senior campaign that saw his team finish 11-2, including winning the PCAA title and California Bowl. The next spring, he would be drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 37th pick and go on to a sterling 15-year pro career.

1984 PCAA CO-DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR The complete package along the line with superb speed, agility and aggressiveness, Moog led one of UNLV’s best-ever defenses by totaling 63 tackles, including six for loss, six sacks and three pass breakups.

JOHN ROBINSON

JEFF HORTON

2000 MWC CO-COACH OF THE YEAR Just a year after taking over a program that posted its first-ever winless season, Robinson led the Rebels to their most wins since 1984 (8-5) and victory over Arkansas in the Las Vegas Bowl.

Winning the tiebreaker, UNLV earned the Las Vegas Bowl bid and crushed Central Michigan 52-24. Horton shared his award with Pacific head man Chuck Shelton. 1984 PCAA COACH OF THE YEAR The most successful Rebel squad since moving to division one, Hyde’s 1984 Rebels were 11-2 overall and 7-0 in the Pacific Coast Athletic Association. The season, which culminated with a 30-13 victory over Toledo in the California Bowl, also produced the school’s first league coach of the year award.

REBEL ALL-AMERICANS RANDALL CUNNINGHAM Punter/Quarterback

Although he is now known for being the NFL’s all-time leading rushing quarterback, Santa Barbara, Calif., native Randall Cunningham (1981-84) won his national collegiate honors at his other position – punter. Still the Rebels’ leader for punting average in a game (58.0), season (47.5) and career (45.6), Cunningham would own the second-best career punting average in college football history if he had punted just eight more times during his three years on the field. Touted as a Heisman Trophy candidate for his lethal combination of talent throwing, running and punting the ball, Cunningham was named first team All-America in 1983 (as well as honorable mention QB by AP) and second team in 1984, making him UNLV’s first two-time All-American since the school moved to Division I in 1977. He would go on to be the 37th pick in the 1985 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles and was named the 1998 NFL Player of the Year as a Minnesota Viking QB.

JOE INGERSOLL

Defensive Lineman

One of only four repeat All-Americans in UNLV history, Joe Ingersoll (197375) also was the first defensive player from the Rebels so honored. The Salt Lake City native played his freshman year at Utah before transferring to the desert and performing as a dominant defensive lineman for three years. As a junior, “Big Joe” led the undefeated 1974 UNLV team in tackles with 105, including four sacks, and was tabbed an AP Div. II Second Team All-American. As a senior, the terrific tackle earned first team honors from the AFCA and would go on to become a seventh round choice by the Miami Dolphins in the 1976 NFL Draft. In 1987, Ingersoll was a member of the inaugural UNLV Athletics Hall of Fame.

JIM SANDUSKY Wide Receiver

Although his UNLV career was brief, San Diego native Jim Sandusky (1981) turned in the greatest receiving year in school history during his one year on campus. Catching balls from the arm of QB Sam King as part of head coach Tony Knap’s free-wheeling offense, Sandusky hauled in 68 passes (17 more than any previous Rebel) for 1,346 yards, which is still a school record. Despite playing in only 12 games, Sandusky remains tied for second at the school with eight career 100-yard receiving games. Such output would earn him Second Team All-America honors. However, with Knap retiring, Sandusky would transfer to San Diego State and go on to a distinguished career in the NFL and Canadian Football League.

The bluest of Blue Chip recruits out of Greenville, Texas, Mike Thomas 1973-74, signed on with the University of Oklahoma but soon left Norman to ride his way West and right into the Rebel – and national – record books. His two seasons in Las Vegas were nothing less than stunning. As a junior in 1973, he scored a school-record 20 touchdowns and led the nation in rushing yards with 1,741, which was just 35 short of the then-NCAA single-season record. A year later, Thomas added 1,408 yards and 17 rushing scores to lead the Rebels to their only undefeated regular season and a Div. II ranking as high as No. 2 before losing in a national semifinal game. His still-UNLV-best career totals were 3,149 yards and 37 TDs born from a 6.6-yards-per-carry average. Both seasons resulted in AFCA First Team All-America nods for UNLV’s first true football star to make him the only two-time first-teamer in Rebel history. Thomas would go on to complete a fine NFL career with the Washington Redskins and San Diego Chargers.


REBEL ALL-AMERICANS JAMAAL BRIMMER Safety

2004 Sporting News-2nd Team AP-3rd Team 2003 Football News-1st Team

The first non-senior to earn All-America at UNLV since Randall Cunningham in 1983, Jamaal Brimmer (2001-04) also became the first non-punting first team honoree for the Rebels since 1975. The hometown hero introduced himself to the nation early in the season with the greatest single defensive performance in school in leading his team to a major upset at Wisconsin on national TV. Brimmer’s phenomenal day, which included 11 tackles, two interceptions, one fumble return for a TD and two quarterback sacks, earned him the Bronko Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week honors. The free safety, who would be voted the school’s first two-time consensus league MVP in his career, led the MWC with six interceptions and four forced fumbles to go with three sacks and four fumble recoveries in 2003. The first UNLV semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award became the school’s first two-time All-American since Cunningham with nods from AP and The Sporting News as a senior. That followed being named a community service All-American as a member of the 2004 AFCA Good Works Team.

Joe Kristosik (1995-98) was a bright light through the program’s only winless season in 1998. He walked on to his hometown team in 1994 and five years later walked away as the school’s first and only consensus First Team All-American. Kristosik was the first Rebel booter to lead the nation in punting with a 46.2-yard average, which was the second-highest in NCAA history with a minimum of 75 attempts. Along the way, he turned in perhaps the greatest performance ever by a collegiate punter when he had 13 tries at BYU with eight going longer than 50 yards and a stunning four traveling at least 60 yards, including two season-long kicks of 67 yards. Kristosik became the first-ever UNLV member of the prestigious Walter Camp Football Foundation team.

KEVIN THOMAS

Cornerback

1998 Consensus 1st Team: Walter Camp, AP, AFCA, FWAA, Football News

Making a strong bid as being the best defensive player in school history, Kevin Thomas (19982001) turned on the gas to close out his stellar career and become the first Rebel on his side of the ball to earn All-America since 1975. Holder of various school and conference records, KT came to Las Vegas from Sacramento as a scrawny and unheralded defensive back but left as one of the best cover men in the nation en route to being tabbed third team All-America by Football News and fourth team by The Sporting News. The second three-time first team all-conference player in Rebel history, his seven picks as a senior broke the UNLV and MWC record for a single season as he led the nation in interception return yardage (213) and defensive scoring (18 points). An iron man who never missed a start in four seasons (UNLV-record 46 overall), his six career touchdowns highlighted a school-record 55 career pass breakups. The Jim Thorpe candidate and MWC Defensive Player of the Year played in both the Senior Bowl and East-West Shrine Game before being selected by the Buffalo Bills in the NFL Draft.

A transfer from Glendale (Calif.) Junior College, Brad Faunce (1993-94) used his powerful leg to post an impressive two-year career at UNLV. His junior season included a 45-yard punting average that earned him Second Team All-America honors. Also the squad’s kickoff man in 1994, Faunce’s memorable 91-yard punt vs. UNR was not only a school record, but also helped the Rebels upset the Wolf Pack to win the Big West Conference title and a berth in Las Vegas Bowl III.

BRIAN PARVIN

Punter

1992 Football News-2nd Team

Brian Parvin (1991-92) became UNLV’s first All-American in seven years when he was named to Football News’ second team as a senior. A transfer from Mt. San Antonio Junior College in Walnut, Calif., Parvin turned in a fine junior campaign with a 41.9-yard punting average, which was good for 18th in the nation. His senior year, however, produced the second-highest season number in school history with 46.3 – the third-best average in the nation in 1992.

UNLV

Combining the excitement of an urban location with the charm of a traditional campus, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas offers students a full educational and social experience. Just over five decades old, UNLV has maintained a healthy rate of growth in enrollment, programs and scholastic excellence as part of the eight-component Nevada System of Higher Education. Located in the heart of one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most vibrant and dynamic cities, UNLV has matured along with the Las Vegas area. With enrollment more than doubling the last decade, the tremendous growth has meant a flurry of construction resulting in a campus setting boasting academic and athletic facilities second to none. Steadily becoming a traditional residential university, UNLV provides on-campus housing for more than 2,000 students. A variety of student clubs and organizations along with 37 Greek organizations supplement the social development of students. From within its 15 schools and colleges, including the William S. Boyd School of Law, UNLV is also becoming a leading research institution of the West. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scientific, social science, and business programs attract millions of dollars in research grants annually to fund projects in desert biology, nuclear waste transportation, laser physics, public opinion surveys and many others. In addition to traditional student programs, UNLV serves diverse local, national and international communities through its Educational Outreach Division, offering Summer Term, Continuing Education and Distance Education programs enrolling more than 53,000 students annually.

< THE U N I V E R S I T Y > 180


With its Performing Arts Center, the campus is the cultural hub of Southern Nevada. World-class orchestras and soloists, dance and theater arts combine to provide a broad selection of concerts and stage productions. The Barrick Lecture Series and several campus organizations bring noted speakers to the University, and local and visiting artists show their works in the Donna Beam Fine Art Gallery. UNLV has excellent athletic facilities as well, many open for student and public use. Opened in 1957 as the southern regional division of the University of Nevada with a total of 28 students, UNLV now is home to more than 27,000 students coming from every county in Nevada, all 50 U.S. states and 88 countries. Much of UNLV’s tremendous expansion is the result of support from the Nevada Legislature and the state’s taxpayers. Private donors have played an important role as well. These gifts support new facilities and programs and, most important, provide the scholarship incentives that bring Nevada’s best and brightest student scholars to campus. UNLV operates an on-campus Center for Business and Economic Research, Center for Economic Education, Harry Reid Center for Environmental Studies (in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency), Desert Biology Research Center, Center for Survey Research, Nuclear Waste Transportation Research Center and other research and public-service centers. Offering 108 undergraduate programs and 137 graduate tracts, UNLV graduated a class of 5,500 last year. The University operates on a semester system and is a member of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, the Council of Graduate Schools, the American Council of Education and the Western College Association. All of the University’s academic programs are fully accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges, and many programs have received further accreditation from independent national accreditation bodies.

SMATRESK

Dr. Neal J. Smatresk was appointed President of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas on Aug. 6, 2009. His career at UNLV began in 2007 as executive vice president and provost, where he was responsible for the leadership and administration of all academic and research programs, spanning 15 colleges and two professional schools. In the last five years, UNLV has hit a number of milestones and academic achievements despite challenging times. Smatresk emphasizes how vitally important UNLV is to improving educational access and success for diverse students, spurring the research and innovation needed for diversifi cation of Southern Nevada’s economic base, and supplying both an educated work force and critically needed services for the community and region. A testament to his vision is UNLV’s partnership with the highly respected Brookings Institution to establish Brookings Mountain West, the national think tank’s first foray this side of the Mississippi. UNLV completed a recordbreaking $537 million fundraising campaign, with Smatresk and his leadership team garnering a $12.6 million donation from the Engelstad Family Foundation to support the largest active scholarship program in the university’s history. Under Smatresk’s direction, UNLV established the Academic Success Center, which is living up to its name by helping students fi nd the right majors, succeed in their classes, and graduate on time. Student athletes are advised through the center, and they have never done better in the classroom. In addition to his teaching and leadership roles, Smatresk has championed kindergarten to doctorate science outreach eff orts and teacher professional development, participating in a number of programs throughout his career that focus on science, technology, engineering and math career development. UNLV’s president is a scientist by training and received his Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Texas at Austin in 1980. Following postdoctoral work at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Smatresk joined the University of Texas, Arlington (UTA) department of biology in 1982. In his 22 years at UTA, he served as chair of biology and later dean of science, until his appointment as the chief academic offi cer at the University of Hawaii at Manoa in 2004. During his time there, Hawaii’s fl agship university entered the ranks of the top 25 federally funded institutions, gained three National Academy of Science members, and received recognition from the Chinese Ministry of Education as a Confucius Institute, an honor shared by only 11 other U.S. institutions. Smatresk has received numerous teaching awards, and his research in cardiorespiratory physiology has resulted in more than 50 papers and book chapters and grants from the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health. His undergraduate alma mater, Gettysburg College, awarded him its Distinguished Alumnus of the Year Award in 2011.

LIVENGOOD

Bringing with him a wealth of experience and the reputation as one of the nation’s top administrators, Jim Livengood was introduced as UNLV’s 11th full-time Director of Athletics on Dec. 17, 2009. He wasted no time getting to work, as less than two weeks later he hired Bobby Hauck as the 10th head coach in Rebel football history. Just three months after that it was announced that a new, state-of-the-art basketball practice facility, the Mendenhall Center, would be built and that stunning addition to the department was dedicated in January 2012. In spring of 2011, Livengood chose Dave Rice to be head coach of the Runnin’ Rebel men’s basketball team and the veteran AD has also overseen the hiring of new coaches in UNLV sports such as baseball, softball and women’s volleyball. This past June, the State Board of Regents approved a new contract for Livengood that will keep him running the department through at least December 2015. Livengood came to UNLV following a successful tenure of more than 15 years at the University of Arizona where he oversaw an athletics program that annually competed for championships not only in the Pac-10 Conference but also at a national level, maintained a high academic

standard for its student-athletes and continually operated its $43 million budget in the black. His fiscal leadership helped Arizona remain one of the lone black-ink athletics programs among a small handful of institutions that rely exclusively on generated funds and do not receive state-appropriated monies. During his time in Tucson, he served as the Pacific-10 Conference president, chair of the Pac-10 Athletic Directors Revenue Sharing Committee and a member of the conference’s Bowl Committee and Basketball Tournament Subcommittee. He also was a member of the Rose Bowl Management Committee, the NCAA Fellows program, NACDA President, and chair of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee, on which he served five years. His work at Arizona and its ascension on the national level earned him an Athletic Director of the Year Award from the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics in 2006 for Division I-A. Livengood initiated Campaign Arizona, which raised more than $130 million for athletic facility improvements and endowments while the Wildcats maintained a top-25 competitive record in the NACDA Directors’ Cup (formerly Sears Cup), including high rankings of sixth in 1993-94, fourth in 1994-95, seventh in 1995-96, sixth in both 1996-97 and 1997-98 and ninth in 2001-02. That record reflects success throughout Arizona’s broad-based program, highlighted by participation in the 1994 and 2001 NCAA Men’s Final Four and champions of the 1997 NCAA Men’s National Basketball Tournament. Arizona also won the 1994, 1996, 1997, 2001, 2006 and 2007 NCAA Women’s Softball College World Series titles, the 1996 and 2000 NCAA Women’s Golf title and the 2008 men’s and women’s NCAA Swimming Championships. Livengood is a member of the NCAA Fellows Program to mentor new athletic directors, has served as a member of the NCAA Peer Review Team from 1994-99, the NCAA Gender Equity Task Force, and the Women’s Committee on Athletics. He has been a member of the NACDA Preseason Football Games Committee since

Jim and his wife, Linda, have two grown children, Michelle, a lawyer in Flagstaff, and Jeremy, who resides in Phoenix. Both children are University of Arizona graduates. Michelle earned her law degree in May 2000 and Jeremy graduated in December1999. The Livengoods are the proud grandparents of four: new grandson Dylan and twins Emma and Isabella (3), born to Michelle and her husband, Jack Murphy, who is the men’s basketball head coach at NAU; and another recent addition, grandson James, born to Jeremy and his wife, Megan, in 2011.

hall of fame HALL HALL OF OF FAME FAME HALL OF FAME

Class of 2012

EIGHT INDIVIDUALS, ONE TEAM ELECTED TO UNLV HALL OF FAME

Albrecht

Diaconescu

Frohlich

Miller

Seven different Rebel sports will be represented during ceremonies this fall as the UNLV Athletics Hall of Fame Class of 2012 will be honored Oct. 12. Six former Rebel standout players, one head coach and a distinguished contributor will join one team in being inducted the night before the Battle for the Fremont Cannon football game between UNLV and Nevada, Reno. Born in 1987, UNLV’s Athletics Hall of Fame will now grow to 114 members strong. Under the hall’s bylaws, former student-athletes must have completed their eligibility at least 10 years earlier to be selected. Coaches and administrators must have stopped working at the University five years previous. All classes now enter on a biennial basis. The winningest coach in UNLV tennis history, FRED ALBRECHT led the Rebel netters from 1974-83 and compiled a record of 230-80 for a winning percentage of .742. A longtime administrator on campus, Albrecht was called upon to serve as Interim Athletics Director in both 1995 and 2003 during searches for permanent replacements. He retired from UNLV in 2007 after 38 years with a final title of vice president for university and community relations. LORENA DIACONESCU is arguably the Rebels women’s swimming program’s most decorated athlete. She won three consecutive Conference Swimmer of the Year awards from 2000-02 while setting school records in six separate events. Diaconescu earned All-America in 2000 and was honorable mention one year later. Winner of eight MW individual crowns as well as seven relay titles, she was also a two-time Olympian for her home country of Romania. The highest-scoring basketball player in UNLV history – men’s or women’s – LINDA FROHLICH finished with 2,355 points and a 21.2 PPG average in her dominating hoops career. The native of Oldendorf, Germany, was named USBWA National Freshman of the Year in 1999, AP Honorable Mention All-America as a sophomore and junior and then Third Team as a senior. Those seasons also saw Frohlich win Mountain West Player of the Year honors three straight years from 2000-02 before going on to a pro career in the WNBA and overseas. Entering the Hall of Fame as a Distinguished Contributor is noted Las Vegas artist and illustrator MIKE MILLER. During the 1980s, Miller created and named the cartoon man with the long moustache known as “Hey Reb.” Miller was paid a single dollar for his work, which eventually helped UNLV vault to the top spot in college apparel licensing. Still the leading Runnin’ Rebel scorer in history, EDDIE OWENS was the emerging program’s second AllAmerican in men’s basketball when he was tabbed First Team by a pair of outlets as a junior in 1976. A magical se-

nior season saw him star as part of the so-called “Hardway Eight” team that gained fame by setting NCAA records for most points in a season, most 100-point games and most consecutive 100-point games en route to the school’s first Final Four appearance. JACINT SMION turned in a career in the water that rivaled any in school history. The Mountain West Swimmer of the Year three consecutive seasons earned All-America honors at the 2000 NCAA Championships while also being honorable mention in two relays. His fourth All-America finish came in 2002. Simon won 10 conference championships as an individual and one on a relay team and swam for his home nation of Hungary in the 2000 Summer Olympics. AMIE STEWART was a dominant pitcher for dominant softball program in the mid-1990s. A second team All-America selection as a senior in 1995, her 30-9 mark is still the school record for wins a season. She led her team all the way to the Women’s College World Series and tossed two complete games while finishing with a .95 ERA en route to becoming the only Rebel to be named to a WCWS All-Tournament Team. Arguably the top cornerback in school history, KEVIN THOMAS still holds numerous school and conference defensive records. The first player in school history to start 46 games, Thomas was the first defensive player from UNLV to earn All-America status in 26 years when he was named Third Team by Football News and Fourth Team by Sporting News. After helping his team win the Las Vegas Bowl as a junior, he became the program’s second three-time first team all-conference honoree and he was named the MW Defensive Player of the Year in 2001. The 1984 UNLV FOOTBALL TEAM was the first of two in school history to win a conference championship and its 11-2 overall record included a victory over Toledo in the California Bowl. Going undefeated in the PCAA, the talent-rich squad featured the conference Offensive Player of the Year in All-America punter/quarterback Randall Cunningham; the Defensive Player of the Year in lineman Aaron Moog; and the Coach of the Year in Harvey Hyde. Also being honored at the ceremony is the 2012 winner of the Silver Rebel Award -- former UNLV quarterback and longtime ESPN personality KENNY MAYNE.
