      Northern Michigan University Wildcats football captains for the 2013 season

      Northern Michigan University head football coach has identified the team captains for 2013.

      Chris Ostrowsky named the captains before practice in Monday. Seniors Christian Jessie, Brandon Parson, Cody Scepaniak and Morgan Stenz were voted as captains by their teammates, according to NMU.

      "These four guys are great leaders for us," Ostrowsky said. "They all work very hard and push their teammates to do the same. I know I can count on all four to help out the coaching staff."

      The NMU Wildcats started preseason practice on Saturday. The Wildcats will host the University of Findlay for the season opener on September 14 at the Superior Dome in Marquette at 1 p.m.
