Video: Naming the captains

Bennett Jackson 2

Here’s a great video from and the FIDM team as they released the behind-the-scenes footage of head coach Brian Kelly naming Bennett Jackson, TJ Jones and Zack Martin the 2013 team captains.

It’s all part of the great footage being put together for the upcoming “Strong & True: Building Bonds,” which airs Saturday, August 24th at 3pm ET on the NBC Sports Network.

With a team as deep with leadership as the Irish this year, I thought probably the most important part of the video is what Kelly says before naming the trio.

“We have a lot of deserving leaders on our team and regardless of whether or not you have a ‘C’ on your jersey or not, I want our leaders to continue to lead, both on and off the field,” Kelly said.

In most years, guys like Dan Fox, Tommy Rees, Louis Nix, or Chris Watt would be no-brainer captains. But they’ll all still carry important leadership roles on this team and help decide whether or not this team goes back to a BCS Bowl.

Take a look at the video below from and don’t forget to tune in tomorrow afternoon on NBCSN.
