The Colonial Column: Captains Named as Opening Day Approaches

By Dan Canavan

This week, the UFL’s Hartford Colonials announced the team captains for the 2010 football season.

Quarterback Josh McCown, and linebackers Tank Daniels and Frantz Joseph were selected as captains to lead the Colonials in their inaugural season.  “Our team today selected three captains that represent the Colonials in a positive fashion both on and off the field,” Head Coach and General Manager Chris Palmer said. “I’m excited for all three and look forward to working with them for the rest of the season.”

McCown, 31, signed with the Colonials this Summer after spending the past eight years in the NFL with the Cardinals, Lions, Raiders, Dolphins and Panthers.  Daniels has played for the Eagles, Jaguars and has earned a Super Bowl ring with the Giants in 2007.  Joseph spent part of 2009 with Edmonton of the Canadian Football League.

Also on Monday, Coach Palmer and eight local businesses also announced the Colonials Kids Program, a charitable ticket program designed to provide youngsters with an opportunity to attend a live professional football game.  Sponsors will purchase a minimum 100 tickets to a Hartford Colonials home game at Rentschler Field for the 2010 season, and the tickets will be distributed to youth and non-profit organizations.

The Colonials’ inaugural game will be played on Saturday, September 18, against Daunte Culpepper and the Sacramento Mountain Lions.
