Spring Ball Underway!
March 15, 2010
LAS VEGAS - The UNLV football team completed the first of its 15 scheduled spring practices Monday at Rebel Park on campus and it was also another first as new head coach Bobby Hauck finally got to see his squad on the field.
"Everyone involved with the program is fired up to finally be out here," Hauck said. "We just want to improve, see a marked improvement from now until we finish this in April. Every position is up for grabs -- except the the head, I hope."
Enjoying gorgeous March weather during a nearly two-hour practice without pads, the players looked as excited to be there as the coaching staff.
"New always means a little haphazard at the beginning," Hauck told reporters following practice. "I think the players did a good job of adjusting (to the new system) today but we have a long way to go."
The Rebels return to the field Wednesday for Practice 2, which is scheduled to run from 4-6 p.m. All UNLV football practices are open to the public.
