NC State Football Elects Team Captains
The NC State football team elected captains for the upcoming season on Thursday evening in its first team meeting. In a players’ vote, seniors John Dunlap, Marcus Stone and Martrel Brown were chosen to represent their teammates for the 2007 campaign.
“These three young men have shown leadership throughout spring practice and in our summer workouts,” said head coach Tom O’Brien. “Their hard work and dedication earned them the respect of their teammates.”
Stone, a tight end from Steelton, Pa., has been singled out for his unselfishness by his head coach and his teammates. A former quarterback, Stone moved to tight end last season and agreed to stay at that position for 2007. He has worked hard to add bulk and learn the techniques necessary for his new position.
