N.C. State named tight end George Bryan and defensive tackle J.R. Sweezy captains on Tuesday, the first day of football practice for the Wolfpack.
Bryan, a senior from Castle Hayne, was an All-ACC selection in both 2009 and 2010. He caught 36 passes last season. Sweezy, a senior from Mooresville, was second on the team with six sacks last season.
“These two young men are great choices,” coach Tom O’Brien said a statement released by the school. “They have shown great leadership throughout spring practice and in our summer workouts and their hard work and dedication have earned them the respect of their teammates.”
The players voted on team captains. State opens practice today at 4 p.m.
