At the first team meeting, NC State’s players elected tight end George Bryan and defensive tackle J.R. Sweezy as team captains.
â€œThese two young men are great choices,â€ coach Tom Oâ€™Brien said in a prepared statement. â€œThey have shown great leadership throughout spring practice and in our summer workouts and their hard work and dedication have earned them the respect of their teammates.â€
Bryan, a two-time All-ACC performer, ranks ninth in school history with 13 touchdown receptions. He is the only Wolfpack tight end ever to earn all-conference honors twice and he is on the preseason All-ACC team for 2011.
Sweezy, an honorable mention All-ACC performer in 2010, tallied 13 tackles behind the line of scrimmage as a junior and led the team with six sacks. For his career, he has played in 26 games.
