Captains Named for Bulldogs in 2004
RUSTON - By a vote of the players, Louisiana Tech named its captains for the 2004 season during a meeting Sunday night.
Head coach Jack Bicknell allowed his players to vote for who they felt deserved to receive the honor. Although Bicknell stressed that it was the seniors team, he would allow players to vote for underclassmen if they players they were deserving.
This year's captains are senior tight end Aaron Capps, senior wide receiver Julius Cosby, senior wide receiver Erick Franklin, senior defensive lineman Jemelle Cage, senior defensive lineman Travon Brown, senior defensive lineman Chris Van Hoy and senior linebacker John Nash.
"I think that our team did an admirable job of selecting these captains," Bicknell said. "Every one of these seven guys possesses great leadership qualities. That's what being a captain is all about."
Bicknell and the Bulldogs will open the season Sept. 6 against Nevada at noon at Joe Aillet Stadium.
