Johnson, Masters, Williams and Wreh-Wilson named captains

UConn named seniors Adam Masters, Jory Johnson, Nick Williams and Blidi Wreh-Wilson as captains for the 2012 season.
“We have an outstanding group of 17 seniors on our football team that all have shown outstanding leadership during their time here,” said UConn head coach Paul Pasqualoni in a statement. “The four seniors that will serve as our team captains have been exceptional in all areas that are expected from a UConn football player.”

This is the second straight year that Wreh-Wilson has been named captain and he has started 22 career games. Masters, an offensive guard who has seen time at tackle as well, has started 23 games since arriving in Storrs. Johnson, a linebacker, was UConn's leading tackler in 2011 and has started 14 games including 12 during his junior season while Williams is UConn's career leader with a kickoff return average of 28.3 and is second all-time at Connecticut with 1,556 yards. He also will return punts and see time at receiver as a senior.
