#CampRebel: Dissecting The Defensive Line
UNLV adds depth to the defensive front heading into the season.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV wrapped up #CampRebel with its last practice on Wednesday morning at Rebel Park.

Following the session, the team broke for lunch and then went through meetings in the afternoon.

Dissecting The Defensive Line
The defensive line got a new coach in the form of former New Mexico State and Southeast Missouri head man Tony Samuel, who came back out West after leading the biggest turnaround in college football in the terms of rushing yardage allowed while working at Georgia State in 2015. His task here is to create more sacks as the Rebels finished last in the nation a year ago with just nine.

At the ends, Jeremiah Valoaga is a potential difference maker for the Rebel attack off the edge while still-raw Antonio Zepeda finally seems to have found a permanent home after trying his hand a tight end. Next up are a couple of vets as Mark Finau and Tui Maloata look to put up better numbers in Year Two of the system. As for tackles, local product Mike Hughes Jr. is a big presence in the middle and a legit candidate for postseason honors while Salanoa-Alo Wily could be something special. Dominic Baldwin and Jason Fao are dependable members of the rotation.

"Jeremiah Valoaga is the most explosive, athletic guy on our defense. He can be a game-changer if he is able to stay on the field. He wasn't with us last spring and then got hurt in the fall so he was slowed," head coach Tony Sanchez. "Zepeda is now at a position where he can run and hit and use his athleticism. Hughes is our best hunting dog - a local guy who busts his butt every day - and Wily is still maturing. It's a group that has to be better and will be better."

#CampRebel: Corners Look To Lock Down Defensive Secondary
UNLV returns seniors Torry McTyer and Jay'Onn Myles and sophomores Darius Mouton and Tim Hough while adding JC transfer Robert Jackson to the secondary.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV football held its second to last practice of #CampRebel on Wednesday morning by holding one practice in half-pads at Rebel Park.

Following the session, the team broke for lunch and then went through meetings in the afternoon.

Corners Look To Lock Down Defensive Secondary
The cornerback spot features two potential honors candidates as veteran Torry McTyer seems to be peaking at the right time and Las Vegas super soph Tim Hough looks to make an encore after a record-tying freshman campaign that included leading the squad with four picks on the season.

Returnee Darius Mouton flew up the depth chart this fall and is listed as a starter at one spot. Senior Jay'Onn Myles and midyear JC newcomer Robert Jackson will show up both at corner and nickel and freshmen Tykenize Daniels and Jericho Flowers will add depth.

"Torry McTyer has grown up and busted his tail and could be an all-conference corner," head coach Tony Sanchez said. "The whole town should rally around Tim Hough -- a local guy with all the enthusiasm and effort in the world. Mouton and Jackson are both very talented."

#CampRebel: Tight Ends And Fullbacks Deeper Heading Into 2016
Seniors Andrew Price and Marc Philippi add senior leadership to the group, while Trevor Kanteman and Tim Holt look to suit up for the Rebels for the first time this fall.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV football continued its #CampRebel on Tuesday morning by holding one practice in full pads at Rebel Park.

Following the session, the team broke for lunch and then went through meetings in the afternoon.

Tight Ends And Fullbacks Deeper Heading Into 2016
One of the spots critically low on personnel when the current staff took over a year ago was right here. Team leader Jake Phillips graduated but two midyear additions from junior college will put the position in better overall shape come fall.

Big Andrew Price is a veteran with an NFL body but needs to step up in his final campaign while both Trevor Kanteman and Tim Holt got their feet wet in the spring.

"Tight end is a spot where we are enjoying a big upgrade as far as numbers go with this three-headed monster," said head coach Tony Sanchez. "Price has to be more consistent but this is a good group overall."

Expect to see the fullback spot more involved in 2016 as the Rebels welcome the return of tough-nosed Marc Philippi who missed the entire season after suffering an injury during preseason camp.

"It will be great to have Philippi back in the lineup," said Sanchez, who also coached the fullback during his high school days at Bishop Gorman. "We need his toughness in there after losing some things in our schemes when he went out."

#CampRebel: Texas Trio Looks To Lead Running Backs
Senior David Greene and sophomores Lexington Thomas and Xzaviar Cambell return to the Rebel backfield this season.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - The final week of #CampRebel is upon the UNLV football team and the Rebels resumed its fall camp while practicing in shells at Rebel Park on Monday morning.

The team met for just under two hours before breaking for lunch.

Texas Trio Looks To Lead Running Backs
The 2015 Rebels spread out the carries among a trio that combined for five 100-yard games. While leading rusher Keith Whitely is no longer with the program, there was already no doubting who would be No. 1 on the depth chart heading into fall. Sophomore Lexington Thomas came off the bench a year ago to record three 100-yard efforts, none of which included more than 17 carries. And while his 6.2 yards-per-carry average ranked ninth among all freshman backs in the country with at least 500 yards, it was Thomas' tenacious running between the tackles this spring that earned him the starting nod.

"Lexington is the starter there," head coach Tony Sanchez said. "He's our most complete back -- catching the ball out of the backfield, running the ball, being explosive. He runs hard and between the tackles a lot better than people think."

The bigger-built half of the "Lex & X Show" is also a returning sophomore. Xzaviar Campbell made his own magic at times last season, finishing with 469 yards and a team-high five rushing touchdowns to form a nice compliment to his fellow Houstonian.

Another hard-running veteran, David Greene, will add senior leadership to the young corps. Greene started his Rebel career on the defensive side of the ball and was named the team's Co-Special Teams Player of the Year in 2013 after turning in big hits on kick coverage. He moved over to the offensive side of the ball heading into the spring of 2014.

There are two running backs looking to make their UNLV debuts this fall as super-speedy Charles Williams, who was plucked out of Fresno, will get the chance to earn carries as a rookie and JC transfer Evan Owens looks to add depth to the group.

#CampRebel Weekend Edition: Photos From Stadium, Captains Named
UNLV held a mock game at Sam Boyd on Saturday night, which ended in a big surprise for one player.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - Sunday was an off-day at #CampRebel but Saturday was full of activity.

First, the team announced its 2016 season captains: a pair of senior linebackers -- Ryan McAleenan and Tau Lotulelei -- will take care of the defense while senior center Will Kreitler and senior running back David Greene will rep the offense at midfield before each game.

The squad then headed to Sam Boyd Stadium to hold a dress rehearsal of the opener on Sept. 1. Using the same timing as that upcoming game vs. Jackson State, the Rebels came out of the tunnel and practiced various game situations on the newly painted field for about 45 minutes.

This was all witnessed by more than 400 season ticket holders who attended a special preview event in the Club Level where they heard from Athletics Director Tina Kunzer-Murphy and Head Coach Tony Sanchez.

The night ended in a special way when the team checked out the stadium video board as walk-on defensive back Dalton Baker learned he had been awarded a full scholarship for the upcoming school year. The sophomore from Las Vegas and graduate of Bishop Gorman High School earned his first letter as a Rebel last season when he appeared in 11 games and totaled five tackles.

You can see the memorable moment caught in photos as part of our gallery below:

#CampRebel Friday: Lex On Tex List, Final Scrimmage Turned In
Thomas one of 41 on Tyler Rose Earl Campbell Award Watch List.

UNLV sophomore running back Lexington Thomas was one of 41 players named to the official watch list for the fourth annual Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award.

The award honors the nation's top college football offensive player who was either born in Texas, graduated from a Texas high school or plays at a college located in the Lone Star State. The honoree must also exhibit the enduring characteristics that define the award's namesake -- former NFL running back great Earl Campbell (nicknamed the Tyler Rose) -- including integrity, performance, teamwork, sportsmanship, drive, community and tenacity.

A 2015 graduate of Benjamin Davis High School in Aldine, Texas, Thomas was the top freshman runner in the Mountain West last season. He finished second on the team with 506 net rushing yards and three touchdowns on just 81 attempts for a gaudy per-carry average of 6.2, which ranked ninth in the country among freshman backs with at least 500 yards. Despite coming off the bench, he tied the school's freshman record for 100-yard games with three.

The Watch List will be narrowed to up to 16 semifinalists in November and then up to five finalists in December. They will be selected by broadcasters, commentators, journalists, fans and the previous winner. The finalists will be brought to Tyler for The Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award Banquet scheduled for Jan. 11, 2017. Houston quarterback Greg Ward was last year's award recipient.

FINAL SCRIMMAGE

The squad enjoyed beautiful overcast weather while turning in another 80-something-play scrimmage open to the public on Friday morning at Rebel Park. The large contingent of media primarily asked head coach Tony Sanchez about who will be the starting quarterback for the team when it opens up September 1.

"If you need to let it play itself out then you wait, you don't rush the decision because it is going to have a major impact on the season," said Sanchez. "Sitting right now, both guys will play in game one. One will be named the starter and will get the majority of the reps but you are also going to see whoever No. 2 is at some point in the first half (against Jackson State)."

Sanchez said the final scrimmage of #CampRebel means a different vibe when the team returns to campus for it next round of practices.

"Everything we've done has been really general. We've been installing our offense against our defense. Now it's about Jackson State. When we come back on Monday it's going to be about our opponent and what they do offensively and defensively schematically and going ahead and attacking that. It's a breath of fresh air once you stop going against each other and the focal point becomes the opponent. It changes the way you prepare and the processes. It will allow our guys to be more successful."

#CampRebel: Receiving Corps Arguably Atop MW Heading Into Season
Juniors Devonte Boyd and Kendal Keys to lead the charge amongst the receivers.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV football met again on Thursday morning at Rebel Park for the first of two practices.

The team practiced for just under two hours in shells before breaking for lunch.

The team will go through meetings this afternoon and will go through another session this evening, wearing helmets and shorts.

Receiving Corps Arguably Atop MW Heading Into Season
Whichever quarterback candidate ends up starting for the Rebels this season, they already know they'll be throwing to one of the top receiving groups in the West. Biletnikoff Award candidate Devonte Boyd could vie for Mountain West Conference Offensive Player of the Year honors after posting the most receiving yards through a sophomore season in school history with 1,884. A unanimous choice for First Team All-MW heading into the season, Boyd posted five 100-yard receiving games last fall despite inconsistency at the QB spot.

While Boyd has been in the spotlight since his freshman All-America season of 2014, his fellow junior standout -- Kendal Keys had his breakout performance last fall when he had hauled in three touchdowns at Colorado State to start a run of five TDs during the last three games.

While there are only seven scholarship receivers on the roster, Boyd and Keys have a bevy of young talent behind them that will push their own performance.

Darren Woods Jr. was so impressive during spring ball that he is listed as the other starter despite redshirting a year ago. Brandon Presley was pushed into playing in 2015 because of the lack of numbers at the position and will be a bigger factor as a sophomore. Meanwhile, a trio of freshman signees will no doubt help immediately and for years to come: Mekhi Stevenson, Andre Collins and Elijah Trosclair.

"Receivers are a big strength for us," said head coach Tony Sanchez. "Boyd and Keys are great players being pushed by Presley and Woods, who are right there with them talent-wise. We think we will have a couple of the best combos in the conference. We only have seven on scholarship so we may not be able to redshirt any of the new guys."

UNLV will hold an evening practice at Rebel Park on Thursday. On Friday the team will hold its final scrimmage of #CampRebel, which is open to the public at Rebel Park on campus.

Friday's practice starts at 8:10 a.m. and the team will begin the scrimmage about 20 minutes later.

#CampRebel Attendees Include NFL Scouts
Annual Rebels In The Pros Update

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - Another day, another NFL scout watching the goings-on at #CampRebel.

As the season-opening game vs. Jackson State draws closer and the preseason opportunities dwindle, one constant over the last week has been NFL teams sending reps to look over the team's class of seniors.

Pro squads that have been seen on the sidelines of at least one recent practice include the Denver Broncos, Tennessee Titans, New York Giants, Atlanta Falcons, Miami Dolphins, San Diego Chargers and Seattle Seahawks.

Every senior on both sides of the ball gets a look, of course, but linebacker Tau Lotulelei, whose older brother and former Rebel, John, is in camp with the Oakland Raiders, is on everyone's must-see list while defensive lineman Jeremiah Valoaga -- all 6-feet-6 of him -- has a chance to play on Sundays next year as well.

Second-year head coach Tony Sanchez said it's too early to tell what the scouts will think of the potential pro players because a lot of judgement comes from performance on and off the field during their senior season.

"We've had a lot of scouts out every day for the last five days but they're going to see all the schools," said Sanchez. "If you have the ability to play, they're going to find you. When you are coming out of college it's going to come down to your work ethic and ability to go out and make plays. There is a lot of guys here who will have opportunities but it will all be dictated by the way they go out and compete.

"When those guys come out to practice they are looking for skill sets but also looking at work ethic, the ways guys carry themselves. They go back, and look into how they do in school, how they interact with teammates and staff off the field, interact with the community. Guys have to realize that they are painting a big picture. We have guys who if they do things correctly have a chance to play on Sundays. There is a good handful of them and I think those numbers will increase every year as we build this."

IN THE PROS

Speaking of the NFL, five former Rebels are in league camps as of Wednesday. The veteran of that group is longtime center Joe Hawley (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), who is entering his seventh pro campaign after being drafted by the Falcons in the fourth round back in 2010. The aforementioned John Lotulelei (Raiders) is entering his fourth professional season; offensive tackle Brett Boyko (Chargers) is trying to catch on with his new team after spending his rookie campaign on the practice squad with the Philadelphia Eagles; defensive end Josh Shirley (Seahawks) is also in his second year in the league while offensive lineman Cam Jefferson (Broncos) won a Super Bowl ring last year as a member of the practice squad in Denver.

Looking up north in the Canadian Football League, two Rebels are contributing to their teams. Former St. Louis Rams' defensive back Quinton Pointer is a first-year member of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats while Canadian native Shaq Murray-Lawrence is in his second season as a running back/return man for the B.C. Lions.

In the Arena League, 2007 Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year Beau Bell won the AFL's Player of the Week Award earlier this month and the linebacker will play in the Arena Bowl against the Arizona Rattlers on August 26.

#CampRebel: Scouting The Safeties
UNLV football will look for its senior leaders to bolster the safety position heading into 2016 season.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - After holding its second off day of #CampRebel, UNLV football got back to work on Tuesday morning at Rebel Park. The team practiced in full pads for the first time since its scrimmage last Saturday for just over two hours.

After the morning training session, the team met for lunch and went through meetings on campus.

Scouting The Safeties
The safety spot lost perennial tackling machine Peni Vea to graduation but boasts a pair of seniors to help keep the position on solid footing -- Troy Hawthorne at SS and Kenny Keys at FS.

Hawthorne has appeared in every game since the 2013 season but will be looking to make his first start this fall. Last year he grabbed his first career interception against Idaho State and returned it 47 yards for a touchdown, which marked team's first pick-six in five years.

Keys looks to make his first start this fall since his freshman year. Last year he forced a fumble and recorded his third career interception, first since 2012, in week two when he intercepted UCLA's Jerry Neuheisel and returned it 34 yards.

Others in the mix include returner Dalton Baker and redshirts Javin White, Evan Austrie and Soli Afalava .

"We're a little thin at safety," head coach Tony Sanchez said. "Hawthorne and Keys give great effort but we have to get a little better there this year."

The team will hold one practice on Wednesday and will have its next two-a-day on Thursday.

#CampRebel: Looking At The Linebackers
UNLV football returns all three starters and adds depth at linebacker heading into 2016 season

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - Following its first scrimmage of #CampRebel, UNLV football was back to work Sunday morning at Rebel Park. The team practiced with no pads and for about two hours.

After practice the team met for lunch and will go through meetings on campus this afternoon before meeting for an half-pads, evening practice at Sam Boyd Stadium.

Looking At The Linebackers
Perhaps the deepest position on the Rebel roster, the linebackers are all back and more help is on the way. Honors candidate Tau Lotulelei is a quiet man who oozes talent but still needs to focus full-time at the weakside position. A jump in consistency would likely result in Lotuelei soon joining his older brother and former Rebel, John Lotulelei, in the NFL.

Angling to become a three-year contributor after coming in from JC, Ryan McAleenan led the team in tackles a year ago and turned in the biggest defensive play of the year with a pick-six at UNR to help bring home the Cannon. He'll ably man the middle spot and all that goes with it.

On the strongside, Matt Lea left spring as the No. 1 but will have to fight off up-and-coming Gabe McCoy and fifth-year graduate transfer LaKeith Walls who used to ply his trade in the Big Ten for Illinois. Also in the mix will be big JC signee Brian Keyes and youngster Bailey Laolagi who got on the field as a true freshman last year.

"We return all three starting linebackers," head coach Tony Sanchez said. "Tau is the most talented but Ryan is the most accountable. If Tau could show up and give us the constant effort, he'll be playing as a pro next year. This group is a big strength."

UP NEXT

The team will hold its third evening practice of camp on Sunday night at Sam Boy Stadium before getting Monday off. The squad will resume its practice schedule on Tuesday morning with a full padded session.

Season tickets for the six-game 2016 home schedule start at $230 on the Sidelines and $130 in the End Zone. A limited number of Value End Zone Season Tickets are available in the North end of Sam Boyd Stadium for just $99. There is also a special two-game mini-plan still available.

Single-game tickets are also available. Advance prices start at just $35 on the Sidelines, $20 in the End Zone and $14 in the Value End Zone for four of the games (Jackson State, Fresno State, Colorado State and Wyoming) while premium-game pricing for the Battle for the Fremont Cannon vs. Nevada, Reno starts at $50 on the Sidelines, $30 in the End Zone and $20 for the Value End Zone.

Saturday Scrimmage Highights #CampRebel
Sanchez reviews the morning action.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - The second Saturday of #CampRebel meant it was time for a full-pads scrimmage on campus and nearly 200 fans and family members came out to see the goings-on during the first session open to the public.

After 20 minutes of drills at Rebel Park, the squad went through 82 snaps with a short break in the middle.

Head Coach Tony Sanchez met with the media after the final whistle blew and offered his thoughts:

"(UNLV ran) 82 snaps, so it was nearly a full game. Sometimes on the field you have immediate impressions but then you watch the film and then your impressions change but it felt like (returning QB) Kurt (Palandech) came out and played real well early and then slowed down a little bit and (JC transfer) Johnny (Stanton) started slowly and then played well later and then they both did some good things at the end. Our quarterbacks are doing a good job of making some good throws but they need to be better at making the easy throw. When you look at some of the incompletions today, some were on simple, routine throws. Those need to be automatic. We have to be better at making those easy throws.

"The O-line I thought looked pretty darn good. The 1-D came out slowly but then had a bunch of series in a row forcing three-and-out so that's good to see.

"We ran the ball well last year and we are going to be even better at it this year. We're a much better and more physical team. (Sophomore running back) Lexington (Thomas) was Lexington. (Xzaviar) Campbell did some great things. You saw (true freshman Charles) Williams -- that kid can flat-out go -- he's a difference maker. One day he'll be the best back in this conference. I'm excited about that group.

"One thing defensively, hopefully you noticed all the bodies rolling in an out. It's different when you see the depth in the linebacking corps and defensive line.

"Overall, I thought it was a good day but we'll watch the film and know the truth ... We're progressing. I'm pleased but not satisfied. There is a lot of things that we have to get better at."

Behind The Scenes Of #CampRebel Photo Day
Team set to hold Saturday scrimmage that is open to the public.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - Friday brought another two-a-day to Rebel Park, which leads into the first scrimmage of #CampRebel. While most practices are closed to the public, Saturday's is open to fans. However, as always, no electronic recording or communication devices are allowed to be in use during the practice.

The Rebels are scheduled to take the field at 9:30 a.m. and then line up for the scrimmage starting about 20 minutes later.

"We'll get started scrimmaging just before 10," said Head Coach Tony Sanchez. "We'll try to get 40-45 plays in, take a five-minute break. We'll do some kickoff and punt and then we'll do another 40-45 plays and then we're done."

A second scrimmage will also be open to the public next Friday (Aug. 19) starting at approximately 8:10 a.m.

SMILE!

While the team had its first off-day during #CampRebel on Thursday, the team did travel to Sam Boyd Stadium for the program's annual Photo Day. The official team photo was captured while freshmen had their first head shots snapped and everyone jumped in front of a green screen to take a video head shot for the scoreboard.

Take a look behind the scenes:

#CampRebel: O-Line Looks To Add Depth During Fall Camp
Lone senior Will Kreitler looks to anchor the offensive line for the Rebels this season.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV football resumed it fall practices with a full contact session on Wednesday morning at Rebel Park. The team met just over two hours before breaking for lunch.

It was the first of two practices on the day, marking the first two-a-day of Camp Rebel. The Rebels met for position meetings in the afternoon before heading to Sam Boyd Stadium for an evening session, wearing shoulder pads and shorts.

Position Spotlight: Offensive Line
Continuing as a question mark in Year Two because of the lack of experienced bodies, the UNLV O-line only lists one senior on its entire preseason depth chart. An infusion of much-needed blocking talent is on the way but will need time to gel at such a critical spot in the lineup.

Any discussion about the Rebels' front must begin with that aforementioned lone senior - center Will Kreitler. A good midyear get by the brand new staff in December of 2014, Kreitler did not disappoint in his first year on the FBS level. The former Fighting Artichoke from Scottsdale CC was the glue that held together the patch-work offensive line and heads into his final season as an honors candidate after being an honorable mention All-MW selection as a junior. He will be backed up by local product J'Ondray Sanders, who moves back to the middle after starting 10 games at right tackle a year ago.

Speaking of the tackles, still-growing Kyle Saxelid has become a fixture on the left side for the Rebels and is another all-conference candidate heading into 2016. Over at right tackle, young Nathan Jacobson is back after starting the final two games there as a freshman.

Two members of the highly rated recruiting class are penciled in as backups - Jaron Caldwell and Donovan Outlaw - along with Reno native and JC transfer Jacob Becker.

Topping the guards list heading into camp are JC signee Michael Chevalier, who competed in the spring on the left side, and prized local recruit Justin Polu, who managed to redshirt in Sanchez's first season, on the right. Newbie Julio Garcia, who like Caldwell starred for the national champion Bishop Gorman program, and fellow-signee Matt Brayton will get a long look for the rotation.

Also joining the Rebels during fall camp is graduate transfer Andrew Erbes, who is only a junior. UNLV is the fourth stop for the Scottsdale, Arizona native, as he spent time at Idaho (2015), Mesa College (2014) and redshirted at Arizona State (2013).

"Will Kreitler is simply the man in the middle," said head coach Tony Sanchez. "Saxelid is a returning starter and has the ability to be a leader but needs to be more consistent. Jacobson did a nice job in the spring. Polu is young and raw but powerful and can be a special player. Chevalier is a nice addition. You are going to see a lot of rotations early in camp with all of these new players but eventually it will mean we will have some depth on the line that we simply did not have last year at all."

NEXT UP
The squad will not have a practice session on Thursday, but will meet as a team at Sam Boyd Stadium for the annual team photo. Following the photo shoot, the team will break for lunch and will then depart for Red Rock Lanes and will enjoy an afternoon of team bonding while bowling.

Practices are closed to the public except for two team scrimmages: Aug. 13 starting at 9:30 a.m. and Aug. 19 starting at 8:10 a.m.

Season tickets for the six-game 2016 home schedule start at $230 on the Sidelines and $130 in the End Zone. A limited number of Value End Zone Season Tickets are available in the North end of Sam Boyd Stadium for just $99. There is also a special two-game mini-plan still available.

#CampRebel Powers On With Full Pads
UNLV football held its first practice of fall camp in full pads on Tuesday.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV football returned to Rebel Park on Tuesday for Day Five of Camp Rebel. The team practiced in full pads for the first time this fall for just over two hours before breaking for lunch.

"We had two live periods: goal line and short yardage period," head coach Tony Sanchez said. "We did thud them up. Tomorrow we will go a little longer live and then they will get a day off."

The first live tackling drill of fall came early in practice and was comprised of short yard situations. Later during the practice the team had another live tackling drill during a goal line period.

"Today was good," Sanchez said. "If you watch one of our practices you should know that there is no difference in speed, physicality or in tenacity whether we are in full or shorts and shoulder pads. I thought they did a really good job of transitioning into pads."

NEXT UP
The squad will hold its first double day on Wednesday as the team will practice in full pads in the morning at Rebel Park and will be in shells during the evening session at Sam Boyd Stadium. Following the two-a-day, UNLV will have its first off day of fall camp on Thursday.

Practices are closed to the public except for two team scrimmages: Aug. 13 starting at 9:30 a.m. and Aug. 19 starting at 8:10 a.m.

Season tickets for the six-game 2016 home schedule start at $230 on the Sidelines and $130 in the End Zone. A limited number of Value End Zone Season Tickets are available in the North end of Sam Boyd Stadium for just $99. There is also a special two-game mini-plan still available.

#CampRebel: Big Ten Vet Walls Expects Big Things At UNLV
Former Illinois defender adds his talents to already deep linebacker corps.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - Arguably its deepest position, the Rebels' linebacker corps just got even better with the addition of a former Big Ten Conference player who joined the program this summer as a fifth-year graduate transfer.

LaKeith Walls (6-3, 235) will pursue his master's in higher education at UNLV while looking to earn immediate playing time in the LB rotation this fall. After a new coach staff entered in Champaign, the former Academic All-Big Ten honoree finished up his degree work in sports management and decided to try a change of venue for his senior season. Turns out another new Rebel -- JC tight end signee Trevor Kanteman -- also started out his playing career at Illinois and reached out to his former teammate.

"We had a coaching change last year at my school," said Walls. "My boy, Trevor, hit me up a few times about coming out here. I hit it off with Coach (Tony) Sanchez and Coach (Kent) Baer so that made it an easy decision."

After moving over to defense in 2014, the former running back from James Ford Rhodes High School in Cleveland, Ohio, appeared in 20 games for the Illini during the last two seasons and totaled 34 tackles, including registering his first career sack against Penn State. Walls said he's still learning about football in the West.

"I didn't know much about UNLV. I'm from Cleveland. I was talking to some other programs closer to the Ohio area but then I got to know more about the program, talked to Coach (C.J) Cox and I talked to (former UNLV and Cleveland Browns cornerback) Eric Wright, who said he really liked playing here."

Sanchez said Rebel fans should plan on seeing a lot of LaKeith this fall at Sam Boyd Stadium.

"You get a fifth-year transfer, you expect him to be mature -- and he is -- but he also has a high-level of intelligence and is picking up some high-level different stuff here really fast. He is a guy who can make a major impact this year. He'll battle to take someone's job.

"It's a loaded position with three starters returning and a ton of young depth and a lot of talent. The great thing is that they have different skill sets and you can plug athletic guys into a lot of different packages. We have a lot of options and Coach Baer sure knows how to use them so it's exciting."

Walls said he is looking forward to helping a new team in a totally new environment.

"My main goal is to really enjoy this final year of college football," said Walls. "I just want to bring an edge to the team. We have a lot of competition in the room. Coach Baer does a great job of coaching everyone up hard every day and giving everyone a fair opportunity. Ryan (McAleenan) and Tau (Lotuelei) are good senior leaders and Matt (Lea) is a good player too. I've been around them this summer so I know we are going to have depth and we all bring something different to the field."

NEXT UP

The squad will be back on the field Tuesday morning for the first day of full pads and will hold its first double day on Wednesday.

Practices are closed to the public except for two team scrimmages: Aug. 13 starting at 9:30 a.m. and Aug. 19 starting at 8:10 a.m.

#CampRebel Moves To Half-Pads On Sunday
Another beautiful morning at Rebel Park as UNLV football wraps up its third practice of the fall.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV was back to work Sunday morning at Rebel Park, wearing half-pads for the first time this fall.

For the third straight day, it was a picturesque morning at Bill "Wildcat" Morris Rebel Park. There was not a cloud in the sky as the Rebels practiced for a little over two hours ending shortly before 10 a.m.

Throughout the morning the sound of thumping of pads echoed across the Ernie Becker Sr. Football Fields as the guys wore shoulder pads and shorts. The team acclimated to wearing the pads by bouncing back and forth from individual drills to team drills during the session.

NEXT UP
The squad will be back on the field Monday morning for the fourth day of acclimation. Following that practice, the team will suit up in full pads for the first time on Tuesday morning and will hold their first double day on Wednesday.

#CampRebel Saturday Update & Photo Gallery
See how the first two days of practice have gone in images from Rebel Park.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - With all the build up to the first day of fall practices, would Day Two of #CampRebel see a letdown on the field on Saturday morning?

Head coach Tony Sanchez said it's something they work on to avoid.

"As much as we talk about energy in this program -- it has to be consistent energy. You don't want to be too over the top on Day one because it makes it hard to come back for that second one. It's about sustaining high energy. We got better in this practice but we saw some mistakes. We have a lot of new guys here -- freshmen and JC guys -- so some of the mistakes you take with a grain of salt. Heck, we put in the No. 2 offensive line and they have four freshmen who just hung up their letterman jackets last week. But we have a lot of legit battles going on all over the field."

Certainly making their presence known early on with a mix of veterans and youngsters is the wide receivers. The position group, led by arguably the top ball-catching duo in the conference (juniors Devonte Boyd and Kendal Keys) could soon go down as the best in school history.

"I haven't been here very long to judge that but this group is talented, big, fast -- everyone has good hands," said Sanchez. "A quality group of players. Right now we're at seven scholarship receivers. You would like to redshirt two or three of them but we really don't have that option. We won't get to the numbers we need for another two or three years. We also play a lot of three and four-receiver sets so those guys are going to have a chance to play."

THE SAX PLAYER

Junior left tackle Kyle Saxelid has grown literally (adding 35 pounds since coming to campus in 2013) and figuratively (starting all 12 games as a sophomore last fall) since signing with UNLV out of Cosumnes High School in California. A top student and the program's nominee for the AFCA Good Works Team for his efforts in the community, Saxelid is upbeat on 2016.

"Practice is going great," said Saxelid. "Today we put in some new stuff. The team is just loving it and there is an energy out there that we've never had before. We have a lot more depth (on the offensive line) -- we have three full lines this year -- but a lot of them are young. We only have one senior (center Will Kreitler) but we're really moving as a unit and we're going to get those young guys ready to go. I feel like a leader out there. I have to do my part on the line just like everyone else but the guys ask me a lot of questions.

Now up to 290 pounds, Saxelid is starting to fill out his 6-foot-7-inch frame.

"I'm maybe going to lose a pound or two during camp but I have to keep eating the right way and feel like I'm prepared for to have my best season."

NEXT UP

The squad will be back on the field Sunday morning for the third day of acclimation. Practices are closed to the public except for two team scrimmages: Aug. 13 starting at 9:30 a.m. and Aug. 19 starting at 8:10 a.m.

#CampRebel Opens For Business
More than 100 players take part in Day One at Rebel Park.

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - Rebel Park came alive again Friday as the 2016 UNLV football team rolled in for its first of 29 preseason practices during #CampRebel.

Head coach Tony Sanchez and his staff oversaw more than 100 players enjoying beautiful morning weather on campus as the session included only helmets, shorts and jerseys during the NCAA-mandated acclimation period.

Asked by a member of the media if it was good shaking the rust off, Sanchez said the team is far ahead of last season's pace.

"The great thing is that we are a little bit beyond that," he said. "It's not like last year when it was our first fall camp. We have some new guys but overall this is our fourth install of the system counting two springs. It showed today - we practiced with a good tempo. We have a lot of things we have to get better at but as far as pacing, working through it, communication -- you could definitely see the difference. Also, after another year of lifting right and eating right, we physically look different."

Asked what he is asking of his team this year, Sanchez said it was no mystery.

"Attention to detail -- doing the little things right. One of the great things about college football is there's no magic in being successful. It's creating a plan and holding everyone accountable to that plan. It's making sure you are taking care of the details. Making sure you communicate well on a daily basis. Lifting right, eating right, you're taking care of school and doing things with a high level of energy. It's a process you focus on. We have high expectations. I told the guys when we went through our team goals last night in the team meeting. Then I told them we're not going to talk about goals the rest of the year. We have one goal - it's to be 1-0. You accomplish that and then you move on to the next one."

Sanchez said there's nothing like the first day of camp for folks in his line of work.

"It's the best. Coaches across the country are all saying the same thing. We love coaching football and being out here with the boys. It's the most important thing."

The squad will be back on the field Saturday morning for the second day of acclimation. Practices are closed to the public except for two team scrimmages: Aug. 13 starting at 9:30 a.m. and Aug. 19 starting at 8:10 a.m. Season tickets for the six-game 2016 home schedule start at $230 on the Sidelines and $130 in the End Zone.
