TOWSON, Md. - For the first time in the history of the Towson University football program, the Tigers will have six team captains, it has been announced by Coach Rob Ambrose.

The Tigers have selected two seniors, three juniors and a sophomore as their team captains for the 2011 season. There are three offensive players and three defensive players.

Offensive tackle Henry Glackin and defensive tackle Marcus Valentine are the Tigers' senior co-captains.

A three-year starter at left tackle, Glackin enters the 2011 campaign with the most experience among the Tigers' offensive linemen. A 6-4, 280-pound veteran, Glackin has played in 25 career games with 19 starts. A two-year starter at defensive tackle, Valentine has started 22 consecutive games. Last season, the 6-2, 274-pound lineman was ninth on the team with 40 tackles.

Junior defensive back Jordan Dangerfield, junior quarterback Brian Potts and junior linebacker Danzel White will also serve as team captains this season.

A transfer from Hofstra University, Dangerfield appeared in all 11 games last season, his first with the Tigers. He led the team with 96 tackles and broke up five passes. He ranked second among all Colonial Athletic Association defensive backs in tackles.

A two-year letter winner, Potts has appeared in ten games and started twice. He has passed for 548 yards to date. An outstanding student, he was the winner of the Tigers' Academic Award last season.

White, who is the probable starter at middle linebacker for the Tigers, returns to the team after sitting out the 2010 season. In 2009, he led the Tigers with 105 tackles in only ten games. He missed the season finale with an injury.

Only the fourth Tiger sophomore to serve as a team captain, offensive lineman Eric Pike emerged as a team leader last year. A 6-5, 295-pound right tackle, he was starter in all 11 games during the 2010 season.

Pike joins Joe Zanelotti (1969), Jim Sandusky (1973) and Dan Dullea (1974) as the only sophomores to serve as team captains for the Tiger football team.

The Tigers, who open their pre-season camp on Sunday, August 7, will start their 43rd season of college football on Saturday, Sept. 3 when they host Morgan State at Johnny Unitas® Stadium.
