LUBBOCK, Texas - QB Taylor Potts, OG Brandon Carter, DE Ra'Jon Henley and CB Jamar Wall were elected team captains for the 2009 football season in a vote by their Texas Tech teammates.
Potts, the only non-senior among the quartet, enters his first season as the starting quarterback for the Red Raiders. The junior played in five games behind center last season and four games as a redshirt freshman. Carter, a preseason All-American in 2009, Henley and Wall have 70 starts between them, including Carter's 27 and Wall's 25.
The captains were announced following Sunday night's practice, which concluded with each saying a few words to the team. The Red Raiders' workout was brief as the team will have Monday off, before resuming game week preparations Tuesday.
