UNLV goes into pads for first time Thursday

A second day of UNLV football practice without pads meant another day of no hitting, but there was more action today than on Monday’s first day.

Instead of working on the basics of lining up in a practice-ending full-team session, the Rebels ran some plays.

The highlights:

— Quarterback Omar Clayton threw an on-target deep pass over the middle to wide receiver Phillip Payne.

— Tailback Bradley Randle made a nice catch of a swing pass slightly behind him and turned it up the left sideline for a big gain.

— Defensive lineman James Dunlap rushed in and knocked the ball out of quarterback Mike Clausen’s hand.

— Defensive end Isaako Aaitui would have recorded a sack of Clayton if the whistle had blown, but Clayton was allowed to throw the pass.

— Clayton made a difficult throw to the far sideline that Payne went high to grab.

— Defensive tackle Malo Taumua stripped tailback Channing Trotter of the ball.

— Quarterback Caleb Herring made a nice scramble and run down the right sideline.

— Wide receiver Michael Johnson came back for a diving catch.

WAITING FOR THE PADS

UNLV goes into pads Thursday for the first time.

“We’ll get a better feel for things tomorrow and Saturday when we put the pads on them,” coach Bobby Hauck said. “We’re doing a lot of learning out there.”

ODDS AND ENDS

Hauck said the running backs stood out … Former major-leaguer Lenny Randle was at practice watching his son, Bradley.
