"It’s an honor (to be named a captain). We’ve got so many great guys. Kyle and Tyler are such good leaders. It’s good to be out there with them."
"I think I bring a really vocal aspect. I like to talk a lot. I’m very personable and I like to talk to all the guys. I feel honored to do that. I think that’s kind of my personality just being a leader. Hopefully I can do well for the guys this year."
"I’m trying to be more of a defensive captain this year. I’m trying to take that responsibility and just trying to step up because if we want to win games and conference championships we have to make sure (we’re playing defense)."
"I really like the experience of that group (the captains). I think that we could have a mix of leadership here that has been as good as ever with the five seniors."
"They really complement each other. Kyle is a real extroverted player. Ty is just an everyday guy. You know what you’re going to get from him. He just leads by example."
"Everybody has their own leadership style, but what I really like about Chase is that he fits in with everyone. He’s a guy that has a relationship with everyone on the team, no matter if he was a redshirt scout team guy last year or the captain of the team. That’s where Chase can really bring a lot of positive things to this team, from his ability to relate to each guy on this team."
