Captain Kovacs Ready For Alabama (w/ video)

Jordan Kovacs on what it means to be captain, the team heading into Alabama tomorrow night, and his feelings on Brady Hoke.

Cut at try-outs. An afterthought. A walk-on. Michigan senior safety Jordan Kovacs has seen and heard it all during his Michigan career but now his face and voice will be front and center for the Michigan Wolverines as captain of team 133.

"I was honored," said Kovacs. "It's a huge honor. I guess in my speech or right after I was announced captain I said several times that I was honored. But I think it says a lot about my teammates and a lot about my struggles and what I've had to overcome to be where I am today."

"The only thing I can do is be the best leader I can for this team," he continued. "That's how I'll pay them back."

With social media taking over how information is shared and spread quickly, Kovacs wasn't even able to be the first to inform his parents of his new title in Ann Arbor.

"I talked to my parents but they had already found out on twitter somehow so they weren't too happy with me," said Kovacs. "I guess I was a little late in telling them. They just told me they're proud of me and I can't say enough about them. They've been with me stride for stride this whole journey and they've been a great supporting cast and they were pretty excited."

The excitement surrounding the Michigan football program right now has quite a bit to do with second year head coach Brady Hoke. A coach, Kovacs says, is easy to play for.

"You can't say enough about him," said Kovacs. "He's an unbelievable coach who has an unbelievable passion for Michigan football and I think that's what separates him from all the coaches. He's a tough loving guy. He's one of those guys that can get on you but you don't take it personal. You know he's a football coach and you know at the end of the day he truly cares about you. I think that's' one of the things that's unique about him. He can rip you but you know he loves you and it makes it easy to play for a guy like that."

The challenge of playing a team like Alabama to open the 2012 season will be anything but easy. Kovacs and the Wolverines know what they're up against but also know how exciting it is to strap a helmet on in a situation such as this.

"I think every year you're anxious for the season opener in general," said Kovacs. "Being a captain, it's a different feel. I'm just excited to play, excited to get the first hit out of the way and play from there."

"We have a great sense of urgency. We're playing arguably the best team in college football and I've said it several times, that's why you come to Michigan to play in those huge games and sure enough that's what we have in week one."

The Wolverines will take the field with Alabama tomorrow night at 8pm eastern.
