Five Kansas Jayhawks football captains are each winners

The greatest honor a Kansas Jayhawks football player can achieve is to be named a captain by his teammates. The role speaks volumes about the player’s status on the team, his character, his drive, his work ethic and the way he carries himself on and off the field.

The Jayhawks have five captains this season: junior linebacker Joe Dineen Jr., junior wide receiver Jeremiah Booker, junior defensive tackle Daniel Wise, junior defensive end Dorance Armstrong Jr. and senior running back Denzell Evans, who is out for the year with a knee injury.

Jayhawks coach David Beaty wouldn’t trade his captains for any players in the country.

Talented Dorance Armstrong anchors Kansas Jayhawks’ defense

Dorance Armstrong is his name, and terrorizing opposing offenses is his game. With continued improvement, this explosive junior just might become the premier defensive end in the country.

He’s simply the face of Kansas football, a surefire NFL first-round prospect. He’s the preseason Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year who led the league with 20 tackles for a loss last season (No. 5 in FBS) and ranked No. 18 nationally with 10 sacks while being named a consensus All-Conference First-Team selection.
