Last month, Nevada Athletics announced its partnership with the Legends Sales & Marketing, which is now handling the department’s ticket sales operations for football and men’s basketball.
As part of that announcement, we introduced you to Ricardo Ramos, the general manager of Legends’ sales team in Reno. With Legends in full operational mode and having sold hundreds of new season tickets for the Wolf Pack so far, we wanted to take the time to introduce you to the rest of the Legends staff:

After moving to State College, his junior year in high school and receiving his diploma from the State College Area School District, Anthony attended the Pennsylvania State University, where he majored in commercial recreation management. Shortly after graduation in May, Anthony accepted a position with Legends at the University of Nevada. Anthony is very excited to be here in the Reno area to begin a career in sports and be a part of a growing program as well as an outstanding community.
