The following is a press release sent out by Iowa State athletic communications.
AMES, Iowa – Iowa State quarterback Brett Bueker, linebackers A.J. Klein and Jake Knott, wide receiver Josh Lenz and running back James White have been voted co-captains by their teammates on the Cyclone football team for the 2012 season. The announcement was made Friday by head coach Paul Rhoads. Bueker, Klein, Knott and Lenz are seniors. White is a junior. Knott is a co-captain for the second straight year.
“There is not a bigger honor in college athletics than being selected as a captain on a vote of your teammates,” Rhoads said. “This is the kind of recognition one gets for much more than play on the field. Respect of this nature comes from giving it all in practice, in school, within the community and in the weight room, among other things. There are responsibilities that go with the title but these guys have proven themselves throughout three to four years as a Cyclone.”
