LINCOLN, Neb. -- Tommy Armstrong Jr.?isnt pouting over not being voted a team captain, even though he is going into his fourth year as Nebraskas starting quarterback and was a captain in 2015.Captains are chosen, leaders are born, Armstrong said Monday. Day one, Ive always been a leader here.The situation is similar to what happened at Michigan State last year, when veteran quarterback Connor Ck wasnt voted a captain. The difference is that Ck expressed disappointment and Armstrong did not.That title doesnt mean anything to me, Armstrong said, just because at the end of the day I know Im a leader.Receiver Jordan Westerkamp, center Dylan Utter, safety Nate Gerry and linebacker Josh Banderas were voted captains. Armstrong said he voted for Westerkamp, his rmmate, rather than for himself and that each of the four captains was deserving.Coach Mike Riley acknowledged that he was a bit taken aback when Armstrong wasnt chosen, and he gave the quarterback a heads-up before he spoke to the team.I didnt want him to be surprised, just a blunt announcement like that, Riley said. He is absolutely still a leader on the team and hes really well respected, and we can attest to that with the votes he got.Armstrong isnt the first veteran Nebraska quarterback to come up short on a captains vote. Tommie Frazier wasnt a captain when he led the Huskers to national championships in 1994 and 1995, and neither was Scott Frost when he led them to a share of the 1997 title.Armstrongs charge this season is to help the Huskers bounce back from a 6-7 record in Rileys first year. The senior from Cibolo, Texas, goes into Saturdays opener at home against Fresno State 22-11 as the starter. He matched his career high with 22 touchdown passes last season. He also had 16 interceptions, second most of any quarterback at a Power 5 schl.I think another year under his belt is a big, big deal, Riley said. Even through last year Tommy learned, progressed and played better probably in the last month. So I think he tk that as a springboard into the opportunity to grow and play better this year.Though the Huskers feature one of the best wide receiver corps in the Big Ten, Riley and offensive crdinator Danny Langsdorf plan to make use of Armstrongs running ability. That was on display in the Foster Farms Bowl win over UCLA when Armstrong ran 10 times for 76 yards.It is a great weapon used wisely and not probably overused, Riley said. If we can get him on the edge and its one-on-one, then thats pretty gd. With this guys ability, we cant pass it up, and he doesnt want to either. He likes it.Armstrong ran 98 times for 400 yards last season. Its possible his rushing numbers will be closer to what they were in 2014, when he had 145 carries for 705 yards in coach Bo Pelinis final season.If my number is called, when we need first downs and things like that, Im ready for it, Armstrong said. This is one of the things thatll help our offense improve, by having another threat in the running game.Air Jordan 5 Wholesale .
