Ohio State picks 5 seniors to be captains
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Defensive linemen John Simon and Garrett Goebel, fullback Zach Boren, linebacker Etienne Sabino and running back Jordan Hall have been selected in a team vote as No. 18 Ohio State's captains for the 2012 season.
Coach Urban Meyer announced the captains at a team meeting Sunday night.
The five have combined for 185 games played and 74 starts with the Buckeyes, with four playing 39 career games apiece. Boren leads the group with 27 starts, while Simon has 26.
Simon becomes just the seventh two-time captain in school history and the first since James Laurinaitis was named captain in 2007 and again in 2008.
The Buckeyes, who completed two-a-day practices recently, open the season on Sept. 1 against Miami (Ohio).
