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.
