CAMP REBEL (UNLVRebels.com) - Day Two of the UNLV football team's 2011 preseason camp saw not only the weather, but the action on the field heat up under the blazing sun at Rebel Park.
The eventful practice brought out the best of both sides of the ball. The offense and defense competed at high levels as the skill position players battled in seven-on-seven drills and the linemen equaled the intensity during a one-on-one pass rush session.
Practice concluded with a team session that saw impressive plays from both sides of the ball. Caleb Herring and Sean Reilly continued to battle for the starting quarterback job while the defensive secondary looked solid, picking off two passes and swarming Rebel receivers.
The team will continue its once-daily morning practices through the week. Saturday will mark the first day of full pads before the program shifts gears and makes its annual journey to an off-campus site for 11 days of practice that will include the battery of two-a-days.
The public is invited to attend all UNLV practices with limited viewing areas. Also, no cell phones or other mobile communication devices are to be used while inside Rebel Park.
