“Dom and Houston will be outstanding captains for this squad,” said head coach Brian Boland. “They both exhibit the desire, integrity, work ethic and leadership necessary to be successful leaders. We once again are entering a challenging schedule and I know that these two young men will do a tremendous job leading our team through it. It is always an honor to be selected as a captain by your teammates and I know that Dom and Houston feel honored and are ready for the responsibility.”
