Washington State has been using RB Jamal Morrow for the coin toss for about two and a half years, but does not name traditional captains. Here's Mike Leach explaining the process that led to the selection of Morrow for this role:
"He's gotta be smart enough to call either heads or tails, that's it. So I thought about should I get the biggest guy on the team or the littlest guy on the team? And then I thought, well, Jamal Morrow was on The Price is Right and was fairly lucky and went to the final round and almost won the sucker. And was closest to the price, but was over by like three dollars. The other person was under by like sixty dollars, but since he's over he loses.
"So I figured, well, Jamal Morrow is a lucky guy plus he's got pretty good energy to him and stuff like that. So why not Jamal Morrow? So Jamal Morrow goes out and did have an amazing knack for winning the toss. Wins it almost all the time. I mean literally. I'm serious about that. I don't know what his record is, but it's something incredible."
