WEST POINT, N.Y. – Sunday marked the end of Army football’s training camp. It also marked the announcement of the team captains for the 2013 season as voted on by the players.
Michael Kime, Thomas Holloway and Jarrett Mackey will serve as team captains for the season, head coach Rich Ellerson announced to the squad before breaking camp.
While Army has less than two weeks until its season-opener against Morgan State on August 30 at Michie Stadium, classes begin at the U.S. Military Academy on Monday.
The Black Knights will have another week of preseason camp with its usual practice time of 6:50 a.m. beginning Tuesday. Game week follows.
Mackey, a linebacker from Snellville, Ga., was named the team’s “legacy captain” by the 2011 seniors. He will continue in that role and also add special teams captain responsibilities.
Mackey, who suffered a season-ending injury in the 2011 opener, has appeared in 28 games over his career with 17 starts. He has made 73 tackles and is expected to graduate in December.
Holloway, a linebacker and defensive back from Birmingham, Ala., was chosen the defensive captain. A member of the Corps of Cadets Leadership Team as the Brigade Student Athletic Advisory Council, Holloway has appeared in 25 games over his career with eight career starts. He has 99 career tackles, one interception and one pass break up.
Kime, a versatile offensive lineman from Zionsville, Ind., will serve as the offensive captain. He started 11 games at right tackle last season before an injury took him out of the lineup. He was a staple on an offensive line that led the nation in rushing and set Academy records for rushing yards, rushing yards per game and total offense. As a junior, he played in five games with two starts, one at center and one at left tackle.
Army will open the 2013 season on Friday, August 30 against Morgan State. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
