We are under two weeks away from the kick off of the 2019 Michigan Wolverines football season and the program has selected the three guys they expect to be the leaders of this roster. Senior OL Ben Bredeson, Senior LB Khaleke Hudson, and Senior DL Carlo Kemp have been selected as the captains of the 2019 team.

There is no surprise that Bredeson was selected as a captain on the offensive side of the ball. The senior has played in 38 games in his three seasons in Ann Arbor, and was a team captain last season as well. He is a two-time second-team All-Big Ten honoree and has been the building block of what has become one of the best offensive lines in the Big Ten and beyond.
Hudson is another player with a ton of experience on this roster. He has worn the winged helmet on the field 39 times in his first three seasons at the U of M. Hudson was an honorable mention by both the media and the coaches as an All-Big Ten selection in 2018 after being on the second-team All-Big Ten roster in 2017.
The biggest “surprise” may be Carlo Kemp who started only 12 games so far in his career. He is a two-time Academic All Big-Ten selection and was last season’s Most Improved Defensive Player of the Year within the Michigan program. He had 2.5 tackles for loss and .5 sacks in his first three years in the program.
