2018 Pirate Captains
Leading the Pirates on the field Friday Nights will be Captains Donovan Ollie, Jackson Ortiz, Aaron Okolo and Luke Whitworth.
Donovan Ollie is a 3-year Letterman, 3-year Starter. He is an outstanding athlete on the field but an even better young man off. He has top colleges recruiting him and at this point, he is "leaving his recruitment open."
Jackson Ortiz is a 2-year Letterman and a fierce competitor. Jackson always has a great attitude and brings tons of energy to the Pirates. Do not underestimate Ortiz as his passion and drive will be scoring touchdowns.
Aaron Okolo is a force to be reckoned with on the D-line. An injury early on kept Okolo from playing in 2017 but that has not held him back this year. He is a hard-working, fierce competitor who is quick with lots of power.
Luke Whitworth is the glue that holds the team together. He anchors the O-line and is a driving force for the offense. Whitworth is a great role model and can be counted on to do the right thing on and off the field. Luke's leadership will make him a great captain.
