Tanner Lee is not a surprise to be named captain. The junior quarterback, by all accounts, has taken on the role of leader throughout the summer and fall.
Josh Kalu is a senior safety who made the switch from cornerback. He has been expected to be a leader on the defensive side of the ball. It’s good to see his teammates validate that.
Jerald Foster is a junior offensive lineman who missed a large part of last season due to injury. He got back on the field toward the end of the season and shored up a questionable line.
Chris Weber is a senior linebacker who started as a walk-on and has worked his way up the depth chart at the heart of the Blackshirt defense.
Luke McNitt is a senior fullback who started his Husker career at tight end. He walked-on to the Husker program after transferring from Nebraska-Kearney.
Congratulations to these young men for joining a very select club of Husker football leaders.
