"Our future looks bright, and I think the future is now," Streit said. "We want to win games and we should put the rebuilding part behind and go out there and show what we can do. We need everybody on our team. We're kind of the underdog, but we want to do some damage and we want to win games."
"I am blessed and honored, and I'll do everything possible to win the games," Streit said. "I was hoping to be captain because I thought I could do a good job, but I didn't expect it. I had a rough year. It was tough to watch, but during the year you realized how good this team is. There is so many great players. I feel we have a wonderful mix of players. There's young, skilled players with a lot of talent and there is some veteran guys. We have a great chemistry."
