Group is first in I-A eraNovember 24, 2006 · MT Media Relations
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee Head Coach Rick Stockstill announced today permanent captains for the Blue Raiders. QB Clint Marks, RB Eugene Gross, LB Justin Rainey, and S Jonathan Harris were honored as the first permanent captains in the I-A era at Middle Tennessee.
The team voted on the four captains Thursday and Coach Stockstill made the announcement today during a team meeting.
"This is the ultimate honor when your teammates make you a permanent captain for the season," said Stockstill. "It's not just your play on the field but the way you conduct yourself off the field and how you lead and push your teammates. When your peers give you a vote for the way you practice everyday and compete on the field and in the classroom there is not a better honor out there. These four guys were truly deserving."
