Baldwin grad Lotulelei named captain for UNLV football

August 26, 2012 - Robert Collias
Just put the paper to bed and found this in my in-box from former Baldwin High School head football coach Jimmy Moritmoto, who is now UNLV's Director of Player Personnel.

Baldwin graduate John Lotulelei has been named a team captain, according to this press release that Morimoto sent me today:

LAS VEGAS ( -- Four players, including a trio on defense, were voted UNLV¹s permanent team captains for the 2012 season, head coach Bobby Hauck announced Saturday.

After a vote by players, senior defensive lineman Beau Brence (Plano, TX/Plano HS), senior linebacker John Lotulelei (Kihei, HI/Baldwin HS/Merced College) and junior linebacker Tani Maka (Long Beach, CA/Jordan HS) were elected from the same side of the ball. Lotulelei is the squad¹s leading returning tackler after posting 60 takedowns in 2011 and was named preseason Second Team All-Mountain West by Lindy¹s.

From the offense, senior tackle Yusef Rodgers (Van Nuys, CA/Crespi HS), who is one of five returning starters along the line, was named to help lead the team this fall.

UNLV kicks off its season Thursday by hosting Big Ten Conference member Minnesota for the first time. Tickets for that game and all seven 2012 home games are now on sale.

Prices are $40 on the sidelines, $25 in the end zone and $19 in the Value Zone for six of the games. There is special pricing for the Battle for the Fremont Cannon vs. Nevada, Reno on Oct. 13 ($50/$30/$25). Additional fees may apply.

Season tickets for 2012 cost $215 on the sidelines (additional RAF donation required in certain areas) and $115 in the end zone. A limited number of Value Zone Season Tickets are available in the North end of Sam Boyd Stadium for just $90.

There is also a special "4-for-3" season ticket offer in the Value Zone for new season ticket purchasers allowing a fan to purchase four Value Zone Season Tickets for the price of three ($270). This is a limited time offer, while supplies last.

Log on to or call (702) 739-FANS (3267) to buy yours today or for more information regarding ticket offers and group pricing.
