The captains were just announced by the team via head coach Pat Narduzzi on Friday. The team officially begins its first game week next week in preparation of the opener on Saturday at home against Villanova.
None of the three is really a surprise and all are key players on their particular side of the ball. Conner is an ideal captain after everything he's been through and everything he means to the team. Bisnowaty and Price are both leaders on the offensive and defensive units and they make perfect sense. All three could also be NFL Draft picks come next spring as well.
