LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - Four players, including a trio on defense, were voted UNLV's permanent team captains for the 2012 season, head coach Bobby Hauck announced Saturday.
After a vote by players, senior defensive lineman Beau Brence (Plano, TX/Plano HS), senior linebacker John Lotulelei (Kihei, HI/Baldwin HS/Merced College) and junior linebacker Tani Maka (Long Beach, CA/Jordan HS) were elected from the same side of the ball. Lotulelei is the squad's leading returning tackler after posting 60 takedowns in 2011 and was named preseason Second Team All-Mountain West by Lindy's.
From the offense, senior tackle Yusef Rodgers (Van Nuys, CA/Crespi HS), who is one of five returning starters along the line, was named to help lead the team this fall.
