Steve Greer Named UVA Football Captain

Posted: Updated:

UVA rising senior linebacker Steve Greer has been added as a fifth team captain for the upcoming Cavalier football season.

He joins offensive tackle Oday Aboushi, defensive tackle Will Hill, running back Perry Jones, and linebacker LaRoy Reynolds as the Wahoo captains.

UVA head coach Mike London said, "I was reviewing the voting for the team captains and noticed that Steve Greer was just one vote shy of being selected by his teammates. Steve has meant a lot to our football program over the past four years, and I think it is appropriate he serve as one of our team's captains for his senior season. He and the other captains will do a great job representing our team this fall."

Greer has led the 'Hoos in tackles in two of the last three seasons (2009 and 2011).

The second-team All-ACC performer is also on the Lott IMPACT Trophy watch list for the upcoming season, an award given to the nation's top defensive player.
