"I've got to do a good job as a leader of making sure that I tell them exactly what's needed, what's necessary and what a leader looks like and not just tell them, show them," said Vanderbilt coach Derrick Mason, who lets players vote for captains.
"There's still a lot to come from this offense because there are so many guys that can make plays," Mason said. "When you've got more than two or three guys that can catch the ball, you're allowed to open up and expand your playbook. You still have to factor in the running game with Ray, and Le'Ron and Willis. So once we get that going along with our passing game, it's going to be very hard for defenses to game plan against us."
