Bowl Youth Clinic Attracts Record Crowd
A record 550 local youngsters age 6-14 enjoyed the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl Youth Football Clinic on Tuesday at Rebel Park.
Hosted by UNLV, the boys and girls on hand for the free event were coached by current Rebel players and heard mentoring lessons from head coach Bobby Hauck and special guest speaker David "Hot Dog" Hollis. Hollis lettered as a defensive back at UNLV from 1983-86, including being a part of the 1984 conference and bowl champion team, before moving on to a career in the NFL where he played for the Seahawks and Chiefs and then in the CFL. He now works for the State of Nevada's Youth Parole Bureau.
The three-hour clinic on the sun-bathed fields ended with a chicken finger lunch courtesy of Raising Cane's, which was a presenting sponsor of this year's Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl event along with Terrible Herbst. The bowl game's Executive Director, John Saccenti, thanked the presenting sponsors, both of whom are represented on the game's executive committee, for making the clinic
