WHITTIER, Calif. - The Whittier College football team has announced its captains for the upcoming season reported Head Coach Mike Neale.   

The three captains are Moises Gonzalez (Long Beach, Calif.), Nicholas Markarian (Chino Hills, Calif.), and Brian Phelan (Chino Hills, Calif.).  "I'm excited about the three young men that were selected by their teammates at the end of the spring to serve as captains," Neale stated.  "We had a tremendous group of captain candidates, and these three men exemplify what Whittier Football is all about.  They are committed to reaching their full potential as people, students, and athletes.  They have demonstrated leadership in the classroom, in the community, in the locker room, weight room, on the field, and are important influencers for our team.  I thought our team did a great job of selecting student athletes that have a very high level of commitment to our program, and will serve as outstanding captains for the 2018 season."

Whittier jumpstarts their 2018 season on the road against Arizona Christian on Saturday, September 8.
