For the freshman moving into the dorms, Sunday marked the beginning of a new life.
Being a student on campus can be extremely stressful. There’s so much going on in life and it can be overwhelming.
It’s that time of year again. Time to pack up all your stuff and move back to school. Leaving your home and your childhood friends behind can be hard, but going back to a place where you have the freedom to do whatever you want makes the transition a little bit easier.
The 2015 captains have been named: senior center Jack Allen, senior defensive end Shilique Calhoun and senior linebacker Darien Harris.
The coaches have no say in the naming of the captains, the captains are named through player voting.
Head coach Mark Dantonio has chosen to stick with a three captain system while incorporating a fourth rotational captain so all of his leaders get the experience.
“I think (the players) did a nice job of picking the three, those guys are all guys that have played a lot of football here and have been in the program for five years," Dantonio said.
After a summer of building chemistry within the team with everything from movie nights to texts letting guys know what to work on, Harris was humbled by his selection.
“It’s a tremendous honor, I told the team after that I’m very thankful, very humbled and honored for this.
