Bosch, Bryant, Donnelly, Wadsworth Named Captains
EASTON, Pa. – Four seniors are set to take the leadership reins of the Lafayette football program. Beau Bosch, Brandon Bryant, Mike Donnelly and Dylan Wadsworth were announced as captains at Lafayette Football Media Day on Tuesday at Pfenning Alumni Center.
The captains were selected by their teammates on Sunday night and announced by first-year head coach John Garrett.
Bosch has started 21 of 22 games the last two seasons, playing at defensive end. He was the team’s defensive line MVP last season and is likely to return to his starting spot for his senior campaign.
Bryant was a 2017 Preseason All-Patriot League selection at linebacker. His 2016 season was limited to five games after suffering a knee injury, but he still managed to finish sixth on the team in tackles. Bryant was an All-Patriot League Second-Team honoree and the team’s linebacker MVP as a sophomore, leading the team and finishing 23rd in the nation in tackles (114) while pacing the Patriot League and finishing sixth in the nation in solo tackles per game (8.5).
Like Bryant, Wadsworth is a 2017 Preseason All-Patriot League honoree. In the 2016 season, he secured All-Patriot League First-Team and Lafayette Team MVP laurels after finishing the season with 42 receptions and a pair of touchdowns. He enters his third season as a starter at tight end.
Wadsworth’s offensive line mate Mike Donnelly is the final Leopard to share captaincy. The versatile Donnelly has played in 21 games the past two seasons, seeing time at right tackle, right guard, left guard and center, where he is scheduled to start his final campaign.
