Rockets select 4 captains

Members of the University of Toledo football team have elected four co-captains for the upcoming season.

The offensive captains will be junior tackle John Greco and senior wide receiver Steve Odom.

The defense will be captained by senior linebacker Mike Alston and junior free safety Tyrrell Herbert.

The Rockets, who were 9-3 last year, open the season Aug. 31 at Iowa State.

Odom, a senior from Westerville South, is near the top of every UT career receiving record.

Greco, of Youngstown Boardman, enters his junior season having been named All-Mid-American Conference first team last year.

Alston, a senior from Columbus Beechcroft, had 9.5 sacks in 2005 and was selected All-MAC first team.

Herbert, a junior from Pittsburgh, had 94 tackles a year ago.
