Week One A Wrap
 
 
 
 

March 7, 2014

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - Gorgeous weather greeted the Rebels Friday as the UNLV football team wrapped up its first week of spring practice on campus.

Practice number three of 15 also marked the first time the players could be in full pads at Rebel Park and head coach Bobby Hauck was upbeat about the early progress of his team.

"We had a good, solid week with good attitude," Hauck said. "It was the first time in full pads and I think the guys came out and really got after it."

RUNNING COMMENTARY

Unlike last season, where soon-to-be UNLV Rushing King Tim Cornett was written in stone as the team's starting running back, the 2014 Rebel rushing attack is a group effort at this point.

Four scholarship backs are vying for carries: senior Adonis Smith (70 net yards and two TDs last fall after transferring from Northwestern), senior Shaq Murray-Lawrence (418 yards, two TDs), sophomore Keith Whitely (56 yards) and redshirt freshman Henri Jussila out of Finland.

"We will wait for someone to emerge at running back but we're not exactly sure when that will be," Hauck said. "Hopefully by the end of spring, we'll have a better feel for things at that position."

UP NEXT

The Rebels will take the weekend off and return to practice Monday afternoon.

UNLV is scheduled to work out three times a week except for taking off for spring break from March 17-21. All practices are open to the public but viewing areas are restricted and no use of mobile communication devices will be allowed while at Rebel Park. Please note that times are subject to change.

The public is invited to attend the FREE family-friendly Spring Showcase on April 11 on campus at Rebel Park that begins at 5:30 p.m.
