Rebel pride was on full display Thursday night as UNLV held the first ever Rebel Summer Fan Fest at Town Square.

Coaches from several UNLV athletic programs met with fans and answered questions. It was a chance to make a one-on-one connection.

“It's really important for all of our fans to know that we've got a lot of good sports at UNLV,” UNLV Volleyball Coach Cindy Fredrick said. “There's a lot of good coaches in a lot of different sports so it's great to see all the kids out here with their families.”

“The big thing is getting our fans year round out talking about UNLV athletics,” UNLV Football Coach Tony Sanchez said. “It's not just football.”

“You know they're necessary for the synergy of the town, the community, the campus community,” Runnin’ Rebels Head Coach Marvin Menzies said.

For fans, it was a chance to feel like a part of the program.

“It's totally different,” UNLV fan Randy Kimble said. “You make that connection now. We're used to rooting, but once you talk to the coach, you understand stuff better now. It's totally different. It makes us root even harder now.”

UNLV staff made plans to have more events like this in the future.
