1933-1934President Doug Dashiel
In 1933, Doug Dashiel took over as president. He had come to Las Vegas as an athletic coach, succeeding Francis Butcher who died in a tragic fire in 1930. Dashiel took over a position, which was vacated by a local hero, and stepped into his shoes quite successfully. Under his regime “The Big Red” was born when Dashiel’s Las Vegas High School football teams rolled over competing teams in Nevada, California, Utah, and Arizona.
