Less than a week before Notre Dame opens its season, coach Brian Kelly has settled on his captains.
Kelly took to Twitter on Tuesday to say that safety Austin Collinsworth, defensive tackle Sheldon Day, tailback Cam McDaniel and center Nick Martin would be captains. At various times throughout the summer camp, Kelly has praised the leaderhsip of all four.
Day became more vocal in the spring as he assumed greater responsibility on the Irish's defensive line; Collinsworth is a fifth-year senior and helps quarterback the defense; Martin is the key cog on the Irish's offensive line while McDaniel serves as the type of player who will address the team when needed.
