From the UA website Geir Gudmundsen, Brandon Shaw, Kurt Cambell and Lucas Kurtz have ben named captains. With all new starters in the offensive backfield hopefully the "Riverboat Gambler" can step-up and provide some leadership.



     Albany, N.Y. – University at Albany head football coach Bob Ford announced today that Geir Gudmundsen, Brandon Shaw, Kurt Campbell and Lucas Kurtz have been voted team captains for the 2004 season. The Great Danes, who shared their second consecutive Northeast Conference championship last year, open their schedule on Thursday, Sept. 2 at Hofstra. Kickoff is 7:00 p.m. ET. The contest will be televised on Fox Sports New York.

     Gudmundsen, a 6-foot-6, 315-pound left tackle, has made 33 consecutive starts on UAlbany’s offensive line. He was named to three postseason Division I-AA All-America teams in 2003. Gudmundsen, a two-time All-NEC first-team selection, blocked for an offense that ranked fourth nationally in rushing at 292.3 yards per game.

     Shaw, a 6-foot, 295-pound center, anchored an offensive line that established the NEC and school single-season rushing record with 3,215 yards last year. Shaw, who like Gudmundsen was named to the preseason Sports Network Mid-Major All-America squad, has twice been chosen to the all-conference team.

     Kurtz, a senior free safety, tied for third on the team in tackles with 55, including 27 unassisted hits, last season. He led the squad in pass break-ups (15) and blocked kicks (3). Kurtz (6-3, 210) totaled a career-high 10 tackles against both Brown and Sacred Heart.

     Campbell, a senior roverback, leads a defensive unit which was 11th among the NCAA Division I-AA leaders in scoring defense at 16.8 points per game. He suffered through an injury-plagued junior campaign, but when healthy is an all-conference performer. Campbell (6-1, 225) has 86 tackles and 16 pass break-ups during his three-year career.
