Black-Gold Game: 5 answered questions
The week leading up to the Black-Gold spring game, Coach Ross announced that the team had voted senior offensive lineman Peter Bier (Milton, Wis.), wide receiver, Walter Hill (Randalstown, Md.), linebacker, Barrett Scruggs (Tampa, Fla.) and defensive end, Cameron Craig (Garden City, Kan.) as captains for the 2006 campaign.
Also ocurring this past week were the annual Spring Football Awards, that went to Caleb Campbell, Matt Weisner, David Pevoto, Sean Grevious, Jordan Murray and Owen Tolson.
So going into the Black-Gold game, there's always a sense on anticipation and excitement. All the players are looking to make a final impression on the coaching staff and establish their status (depth chart) on the team.
