UofL FOOTBALL | Closer look at Louisville's defensive captains

08/17/2017 05:43 PM

The Louisville football team named team captains earlier this week. No surprise one of them is reigning Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson. Joining him on the offensive side of the football is running back Reggie Bonnafon and offensive lineman Geron Christian.

The defensive captains are cornerback Jaire Alexander and safety Chucky Williams. Williams is entering his third year as a starting safety for U of L, and his captaincy would indicate he is taking his role as a senior leader very seriously.

Mark Ennis from ESPN Louisville was on with Andrew today, and talked about where Williams will be able to improve in 2017.
