ASU Football Camp Update: Team Chooses Captains, Prepares For Season Opener

College football season is just around the corner, and that means that the Arizona State University Sun Devils are very close to taking the field for first time in the season opener of their highly anticipated 2011 season. The team's first game, scheduled for Sept. 1st against University of California- Davis, is just over one week away.

The team has had a good week so far. Monday saw the return of running back Cameron Marshall, who fought off a sore ankle and is working his way back into the rotation. The offense looked good on Tuesday, as quarterbacks and receivers connected on several occasions for touchdowns. Starting quarterback Brock Osweiler threw two touchdowns and ran for another one during Tuesday's practice.

The team also chose captains earlier this week. Osweiler, linebacker Colin Parker, center Garth Gerhart, injured cornerback Omar Bolden and injured wide receiver T.J. Simpson were selected to lead the team. Bolden and Simpson are both dealing with torn ACLs and are likely out for the season. The two seniors should, however, still contribute from the sidelines with their leadership.

The Sun Devils are now down to their final week of practice before next Thursday's season opener. The team will look to make the most out of this coming week, whether that means perfecting certain drills or getting injured players (such as Marshall) back into the mix. The team is slated to play its "Mock Game" at Sun Devil Stadium on Thursday.
