"Being elected to the Leadership Council is the ultimate sign of respect, since their teammates vote them into a position of influence," said Doeren. "The Leadership Council is the voice of the locker room."
Doeren says that the position is not a recognition of athletic prowess, but leadership ability. He will go to the council when he needs player input on a decision and a player can go to the council with issues they would like brought up to the coaches.
"I look forward to working with this group and am excited for them to earn this honor from their teammates," he continued. "We will give them the opportunity to grow as leaders and the resources to empower them."
