Duke redshirt senior linebacker Abraham Kromah, senior center Bryan Morgan and redshirt senior cornerback Chris Rwabukamba have been named captains by the players and coaching staff. Duke will also have one game captain each week throughout the season. Senior tight end Brett Huffman will be the captain for Saturday's game against Elon.
“Unlike last year, this year our team decided on permanent captains,” said Cutcliffe. “The way we’re going to do that is that we have three permanent captains and then as a staff we will choose one player each week to be a game captain with those three. It was an overwhelming decision by our team, and supported by our staff. I’m very appreciative of these young men. Of the four, three of them are fifth-year seniors. They’ve invested a lot into what we are doing. They’ve exemplified on and off the field what we expect in a Duke player.”
