Your 2011 team captains and injury updates

A trio of seniors take over as captains and an update on the injury front.

Runningback Antwon Bailey, cornerback Kevyn Scott, and fullback Adam Harris will be SU's team captains for the upcoming season. Bailey will represent the offense, Scott the defense, and Harris special teams. Their teammates selected the trio in a team vote. 


Bailey, a senior back from Landover, Maryland, accumlated 1,087 rushing yards and in his first three seasons at SU. Bailey takes over the starting role from Delone Carter. Bailey can hurt defenses on both the ground and in the passing game, making him a valuable dual threat to the offense. Last season, he brought in 35 receptions for 306 yards and 3 touchdowns, all career highs. 


Scott, a graduate student defensiveback from Tamarac, Florida, missed nine of SU's 13 games last season with an injury. He's intercepted three passes in his SU career and made 61 total tackles. 


Harris, a senior from Towanda, Pennsylvania, transferred to SU from Cornell and joined the team as a walk-on linebacker in 2009. He switched to fullback prior to the 2010 season. He rushed for 21 yards on 8 carries and caught 4 passes for 36 yards last season.


In injury news, freshman cornerback Jaston George suffered a groin injury Thursday. He will be out of action indefinitely.
