Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - We knew early on this summer that second year head coach Scott Shafer wanted his team to visit Fort Drum before they voted on this seasons captains. And after returning back to practice this weekend from that trip the Orange players voted on who they wanted to represent their team. Shafer said 20 players received at least one vote and over a dozen received multiple votes. But, four players were chosen as the favorites.

-Senior long snapper Sam Ryan
-Senior offensive tackle Sean Hickey
-Senior running back Prince Tyson-Gulley
-Senior linebacker Cameron Lynch

The Orange kick off the season hosting Villanova on August 29th.
