Two sort of cool things occurred yesterday:
> The Warriors announced the results of the players’ votes for team captains. The winners: Quarterback Max Wittek, center/tackle Ben Clarke, outside linebacker Lance Williams and cornerback Ne’Quan Phillips. Williams was selected last year despite entering the 2014 season as a reserve. This spring, Williams has practiced with the No. 1 unit. Starter or reserve, teammates recognize Williams’ contributions and leadership.
> It started several years ago as a dinner to honor academic achievements of student-athletes. Then there were ESPY-like categories added, with nominees also invited to the dinner. Tuesday’s event — the H Awards — was orchestrated by the student-athletes. There were various awards, such as one for Marcus Kemp’s winning catch against UNLV, and the traditional Bonham Awards. We need not worry about the future. UH students know how to put on a good show.
