Colorado has announced its team captains for the upcoming season.

Four seniors were voted on by their teammates: tight end Brady Russell, offensive lineman Casey Roddick, defensive end Terrance Lang, and inside linebacker Quinn Perry. Roddick represented the Buffs at Pac-12 Media Day in July, all but foretelling his selection as team captain. Russell is one of the Pac-12’s better tight ends. Lang has been a full-time starter since 2019.

Russell, a Fort Collins native, is entering into his sixth and final season with the Buffs in 2022. He has 38 career appearances with 28 starts, as well as 58 career catches for 646 yards and three touchdowns. With the offense hoping for an improved passing attack in 2022, Russell could be one of the bright stories at tight end throughout the league this season.

Roddick joined the buffs on a grayshirt back in 2018. Over the last two seasons, he’s been a regular starter on the offensive line. Phil Steele picked him as a preseason fourth-team All-Pac-12 lineman.

Lang has 40 career appearances with 27 starts to his name. He has 85 career tackles, 16 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, and six pass breakups.

Perry has worked his way up from the junior college ranks to a top scout team player, to a special teams staple, to a full-time starter at inside linebacker. He started 11 games last season, finishing with 78 tackles and four tackles for loss.

Colorado begins its season on Friday when it hosts TCU at Folsom Field at 7 p.m. PT on ESPN.
