Football Team Captains Named
May 4, 2010
Corvallis, Ore. -
Oregon State senior football student-athletes Stephen Paea, James Rodgers, Alex Linnenkohl, Dwight Roberson, Gabe Miller and James Dockery have been selected team captains for the 2010 season. Captains are selected via a vote of the team at the end of spring practice.
Paea, a 6-1, 311-pound defensive tackle, has been picked for the second straight year. The preseason All-American is the first two-time team captain since Sammie Stroughter in 2007 and ’08. The 6-2, 303-pound Linnenkohl, a projected Rimington Trophy candidate, is the first offensive center team captain since Tom Nordquist in 1991.
Oregon State returns to the practice field Aug. 9 in preparation for the 2010 season, which opens Sept. 4 vs. TCU at Cowboys Stadium on ESPN.
