Top Players to Watch in Spring Practice

As Hoke enters his fourth season in Ann Arbor, he’s under pressure to beat rivals Michigan State and Ohio State—which battled for the Big Ten championship last season—while Michigan lurked in the Legends division cellar.

Team 134 Captains- Michigan Wolverines Football News


The team captains for this season have been named.

University of Michigan football head coach Brady Hoke announced Sunday (Aug. 25) that seniors Taylor Lewan (Cave Creek, Ariz./Chaparral), Courtney Avery (Mansfield, Ohio/Lexington) and Cam Gordon(Detroit, Mich./Inkster) and senior/junior Jake Ryan (Westlake, Ohio/St. Ignatius) have been elected captains of the 2013 football team by a vote of their teammates.

It marks the third time in Michigan Football history the team will have four captains.

No big surprises here. I thought there might be chance of QB Devin Gardner or RB Fitz Toussaint being named to have the offense and defense be equally represented.

The defense continues to be the story of fall camp.
