The Las Vegas Bowl hosted that its eighth annual Youth Football Clinic presented by Terrible Herbst and Raising Canes on Friday, July 29 on the UNLV campus. The free event was open to the public and the first 750 kids to register.

Boys and girls gathered at Bill “Wildcat” Morris Rebel Park where they went through multiple stations on Ernie Becker Sr. Football Fields as well as inside the Lied Athletic Complex. The day will included a free commemorative T-shirt and complimentary lunch provided by Raising Canes.
New this year was a free class taught during the event by the City of Henderson that covered topics such as heat dangers, first aid, proper hydration, concussion signs and symptoms, and education on AEDs and how to use them. The class was designed for coaches and parents and was open to anyone on hand wishing to participate.
“We set a record for turnout was again for this year’s clinic and we were excited to offer this fun experience again for kids in Southern Nevada,” said Las Vegas Bowl Executive Director John Saccenti. “Terrible Herbst and Raising Canes continue to make this possible with their generous support and of course we love having Coach Sanchez and his UNLV staff on hand for what has become a great tradition leading into football season.”
