what it means to be a captain

The Dirtbag coaching staff and players select from each graduating class a “Captain” to help pilot our program each summer and fall. The player selected each year to wear the “C” exudes confidence and has earned trust and respect from his peers. He presents a positive and real image of the program. He displays loyalty and above all, he wears the Dirtbag’s uniform with pride.
