ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Navy head football coach Paul Johnson announced Monday that Jeremy Chase (Norfolk, Va.) and Lamar Owens (Savannah, Ga.) have been elected team captains for the 2005 football season by their teammates.
Chase, a 2005 All-East candidate, started all 12 games at
defensive end last year for the Midshipmen. He finished the 2004 campaign
with 46 tackles, 11 tackles for a loss, a sack and a fumble recovery. The
11 tackles for a loss were the second most on the team. Chase had his
best game against Notre Dame, coming up with eight tackles and two tackles
for a loss.
Owens enters the fall as Navy's starting quarterback after
serving as the back up the last three years behind Craig Candeto and Aaron Polanco. Owens appeared in six games last fall, rushing for 115 yards and
a touchdown on 24 carries. Owens showed his big-play capabilities in the
Army-Navy game, bursting around right end for a 17-yard touchdown to put the
final points on the board in Navy's 42-13 rout of the Black Knights.
Midshipmen are coming off one of the most successful seasons in school history,
winning 10 games for the first time in 99 years, winning the
Commander-In-Chief's Trophy for the second-consecutive season, defeating New Mexico to win the Emerald Bowl and finishing the year ranked 24th in the country
in both polls.
Season tickets are currently on sale at the Navy box
office in Ricketts Hall, by calling 1-800-US4-NAVY, or on the internet at www.navysports.com. Navy opens up the
2005 campaign Saturday, Sept. 3 against Maryland at M&T Bank Stadium in
Baltimore. The game is scheduled for a 6 p.m. start and will be televised
nationally by CSTV.
