Woods and Richmond Voted Cowboy Captains

Rashaun Woods and Greg Richmond have been voted to one of the highest honors a player can receive as their own teammates identified them as team leaders for the upcoming season.

STILLWATER -- In a vote of the Cowboy seniors early this evening All American record setting wide receiver Rashaun Woods and standout defensive end Greg Richmond were voted the Oklahoma State football captains for the 2003 season. Woods and Richmond were formally introduced as the captains to the entire squad following tonight's light workout at Lewis Field.
The two new captains were both recruited in the same class and both hail from the Oklahoma City area, in fact they were playing against each other in the annual "Soul Bowl" several years before becoming O-State teammates. Woods is from Oklahoma City Millwood and Richmond is a former option quarterback from Oklahoma City Douglass High School.
Woods, who is a quiet leader on the Cowboy squad, speaks loudly with his accomplishments as he holds Oklahoma State records for season receiving yards (1,695), season receptions (107), season touchdowns (17), career receptions (216), game receiving yards (12-226-yards versus Oklahoma). He is second in career receiving yards behind Hart Lee Dykes (3,047 just 25-yards behind Dykes) and second in career receiving touchdowns behind Dykes (27 just two behind Dykes). Last year he led the Big 12 in receiving and he is the top returning receiver in NCAA Division I.
Rashaun Woods is the son of Lawrence and Juana Woods, and he has two brothers on the Cowboy squad in redshirt freshman wide receiver D'Juan and true freshman quarterback Donovan. Rashaun is majoring in health promotions.
Greg Richmond is a three-year starter at defensive end for the Cowboys. Last season his seven sacks tied him with NFL first round draft pick Kevin Williams for the team high in sacks. He also had 55 overall tackles with standout games against Southern Miss in the Houston Bowl (six tackles and a sack), Oklahoma (five tackles and a sack), Texas A&M (five tackles and a 12-yard sack), Nebraska (four tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery, Kansas State (five tackles and a forced fumble), Texas (five tackles and a sack), UCLA (seven tackles).
Richmond, who is noted for his firey attitude, is the son of Cleveland Lewis and Dorothy Richmond. He will graduate in December with a degree in hotel and restaurant administration.
Although he was not elected it is expected that senior kicker Luke Phillips will join the captains at midfield for the coin toss representing the special teams.
