VILLANOVA, Pa. - Villanova University head football coach Andy Talley today announced the 2012 Wildcat team captains. Senior offensive lineman Dan Shirey and senior wide receiver Norman White will serve as co-captains for this year's team. This is the second straight season that White will be a team captain.
