NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Returning starters Joe Townsend (Sr., center), Kyle Woestmann (Sr., outside linebacker) and Andrew East (Sr., snapper) have been elected co-captains for the upcoming season. 

Head Coach Derek Mason announced the team's three new captains on Aug. 18. 

The staff will announce a fourth Commodore to join East, Townsend and Woestmann prior to each game of the 2014 season. 

East, a native of Indianapolis, will serve as special teams' captain for the second consecutive season. This marks the first year that either Townsend, from Hendersonville, Tenn., or Woestmann, of Marietta, Ga., have served as a Commodore captain. 

Mason said East, Townsend and Woestmann were elected in a recent ballot by Vanderbilt teammates. 

"I'm pleased for all three of these players. These men stepped forward as team leaders during the summer workouts and in (preseason) camp," the head coach said.
