Ex-USC quarterback Max Wittek voted a team captain at Hawaii

Former USC quarterback Max Wittek has been named a team captain at Hawaii

The Hawaii football team voted former USC quarterback Max Wittek as one of four team captains this spring.

Wittek will compete to start at quarterback for the Rainbow Warriors in the fall after he was sidelined during the 2014 season because of NCAA transfer rules. He has one season of eligibility remaining.

In 2013, Wittek lost the starting job to Cody Kessler and left the team after the season.

Wittek started two games at USC in 2012 when Matt Barkley was sidelined because of an injury.

He threw for 186 yards and a touchdown, with an interception, in a loss to top-ranked Notre Dame. He completed 14 of 37 passes for 107 yards and a touchdown, with three interceptions, in a loss to Georgia Tech at the Sun Bowl.

Hawaii's opener is against Colorado on Sept. 3 at Aloha Stadium.
