Election to the Leadership Council is not a recognition of athletic prowess, but leadership ability. Doeren goes 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.
The members of each position group voted for an underclassman (first or second year) and an upperclassman (third or fourth year) and the top vote getters were elected. Several players were elected for the third straight year: Hakim Jones (S), Jack Tocho (CB), Joe Thuney (OL) and Jacoby Brissett (QB). M.J. Salahuddin (LB), Benson Brown (TE), Tony Adams (OL) and Gavin Locklear (WR) will be in their second term on the council.
"This is going to be a great group to work with," he continued. "We will give them the opportunity to grow as leaders and the resources to empower them."
