London Adds Greer as a Team Captain For 2012 Season
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia football head coach Mike London has announced that he has named senior linebacker Steve Greer a captain for the 2012 season. Greer joins previously announced captains Oday Aboushi, Will Hill, Perry Jones and LaRoy Reynolds.
“I was reviewing the voting for the team captains and noticed that Steve Greer was just one vote shy of being selected by his teammates,” said London. “Steve has meant a lot to our football program over the past four years and I think it is appropriate he serve as one of our team’s captains for his senior season. He and the other captains will do a great job representing our team this fall.”
Greer (Solon, Ohio) has lead UVa in tackles in two of his three seasons (2009 and 2011) on Grounds and enters the 2012 season with 254 career stops. The second team All-ACC performer in 2011 was recently named to the Lott IMPACT Trophy watch list for the upcoming season. The preseason Phil Steele publication named Greer this month a first team preseason All-ACC honoree.
