UCLA football: Bruins pick foursome as team captains

UCLA players have voted to make quarterback Kevin Prince, tackle Micah Kia, free safety Rahim Moore and linebacker Akeem Ayers team captains this fall.

Seems like a better voting process than the one that went on in South Carolina recently.

Prince: Starting quarterback who runs the offense anyway, and is not afraid (for better or worse) of going head-first into a tackler.


Kia: Well-liked senior who will be in his fifth year at UCLA, and earned huge respect for his efforts to get back from the severe knee injury suffered in August.

Moore: Possesses a 24-hour-a-day clever tongue and strong vocal cords, always titled toward the positive, and makes the kinds of plays to give his words weight.

Ayers: Massive play-maker and classic lead-by-example guy, with the examples being pretty good (see interception against Oregon and one against Temple).

Good leadership, it appears. Of course, that doesn’t necessarily translate into points.
