MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee Head Coach Rick Stockstill announced today permanent captains for the Blue Raiders. DE Tavares Jones, DE Erik Walden, DB Bradley Robinson, and RB DeMarco McNair were honored as the second group of permanent captains in the I-A era at Middle Tennessee.
The team voted on the four captains and Coach Stockstill made the announcement during a recent team meeting.
"Like I always have said this is the ultimate honor when your teammates make you a permanent captain for the season," said Stockstill. "These four guys have meant a lot to this program and all four are very deserving. 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."
