Every vote counts at UVa

Virginia coach Mike London has named senior linebacker Steve Greer a captain for the 2012 season. Greer joins previously announced captains Oday Aboushi, Will Hill, Perry Jones and LaRoy Reynolds.

“I was reviewing the voting for the team captains and noticed that Steve Greer was just one vote shy of being selected by his teammates,” said London. “Steve has meant a lot to our football program over the past four years and I think it is appropriate he serve as one of our team’s captains for his senior season. He and the other captains will do a great job representing our team this fall.”

Greer has lead UVa in tackles in two of his three seasons (2009 and 2011) and enters the 2012 season with 254 career stops. He was recently named to the Lott IMPACT Trophy watch list for the upcoming season.
