Maryland named guard Andrew Gonnella, tailback Davin Meggett, linebacker Kenny Tate and defensive tackle Joe Vellano as its 2011 football captains.
Gonnella, Meggett and Tate are seniors. Vellano is a junior.
The establishment of season captains is a change for the Terrapins under Randy Edsall. Former coach Ralph Friedgen used different captains for each game for all but the 2009 season, when four permanent captains were elected before the season.
