2018 Tennessee game captains

KNOXVILLE – Four games remain for Tennessee (3-5, 1-4 SEC) in the 2018 season.

Following a 27-24 loss at South Carolina, the Vols enter November needing to win three out of their final four games against Charlotte, Kentucky, Missouri and at Vanderbilt.

In the loss at South Carolina, quarterback Jarrett Guarantano completed 27-of-39 passes for 207 yards and two touchdowns. 39 passing attempts were a career high.

Against South Carolina, Stanford graduate transfer quarterback Keller Chryst did not see game action for the second time this season after not playing at Auburn.

Guarantano had a career high game for passing yards (328) at Auburn and was named a captain in the Vols’ 30-24 victory over the Tigers.

Against South Carolina, Chryst was named a captain.

During spring practices Jeremy Pruitt discussed team captain criteria and how he planned to name players in a week-by-week approach.

“The teams that I played on, the captains were selected by their teammates at the end of the year, which I think is a huge honor for guys to get selected by their teammates,” Pruitt said in April. “It says a lot about them.

“I’m sure we’ll probably have captains by the week, based off of who we think are good leaders and who gives us the best chance to have success. Towards the end of the year, when the season is over with, we’ll let the team vote on it.”
