Trent Bray, Mike Hass and Chaz Scott Selected Team Captains
May 5, 2005
Corvallis, Ore. - Senior linebackers Trent Bray and Chaz Scott, and senior wide receiver Mike Hass have been named team captains for the 2005 football season. The three were recently selected via a vote by the team's student-athletes.
Bray enters the season first among active players on the roster for tackles with 221, 60 shy of breaking into the school's top 10 in that category. He has started 22 consecutive games and has already been selected a candidate for the Lombardi Award and is on the 'watch list' for the Lott Trophy. Bray was a second team All-Pac-10 Conference selection last season and was the defensive MVP of the Insight Bowl.
Scott has been an integral member of the defense and special teams over the last three seasons. He was named the team's co-special teams player of the year last season after making several significant plays, including forcing a fumble on the first play of the season at LSU. Scott started the final four games of last season and concluded the year with 40 tackles.
'I feel honored in being selected as a team captain,' Scott said. 'I feel that I have gained respect from my teammates; it's time now to be the best leader I can.'
Hass in one of the premier receivers in the nation after garnering third team Associated Press All-America honors in 2004. He already holds the OSU single season marks for receiving yards (1,379) and receptions (86). The 2004 first team All-Pac-10 selection set a league record last season with 293 receiving yards at Boise State and had a school record 14 receptions at Arizona State. He was OSU's 2004 offensive MVP.
'It's an honor for us because the guys voted and it shows the respect for being here five years and putting in our time and performing on the field,' Hass said. 'I've seen guys like Ken Simonton, Richard Seigler and Steven Jackson selected captains, and now it's my turn - it's a big honor.'
