Michigan picks pair to lead 2010 football teamPublished 8:18pm Wednesday, August 11, 2010
ANN ARBOR — University of Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez announced Monday that fifth-year seniors Mark Moundros (Farmington Hills, Mich./North Farmington HS) and Stephen Schilling (Bellevue, Wash./Bellevue HS) have been elected captains of the 2010 football team by a vote of their teammates. Schilling will represent the offense, and Moundros was selected as the defensive captain.
“This team chose two worthy seniors to represent this program as captains,” said Rodriguez. “Mark and Stephen are great representatives of the University of Michigan, both as students and football players. They will work with our other seniors to lead this team throughout the season.”
A three-year letterman, Moundros will be a two-way performer for the Wolverines in 2010. He practiced at linebacker throughout the spring and is the team’s starting fullback. Moundros has recorded 15 special teams tackles during his career. He has rushed the ball three times for 14 yards and one touchdown and caught four passes for 13 yards and one TD in his career.
Schilling has started more games than any other Wolverine, making 36 starts in 37 possible games. He started at left guard in 2009 after starting at right tackle during his first two seasons. Schilling earned NSCA All-American Strength and Conditioning Athlete of the Year honors during the 2009-10 academic year. He was 2009 All-Big Ten honorable mention and co-recipient of the Hugh R. Rader Jr. Award as Michigan’s top offensive lineman. He has started 22 games at right tackle, 12 contests at left guard and two games at right guard.
