Our captains for today will be Addison Ooms and Ashtyn Davis.
C Addison Ooms was previously a captain for the BYU game and will be one of the seniors honored today. Ooms has started every game for us this season—starting all of our past 34 games, in fact.
Ashtyn Davis has been integral for us on defense (at safety) and special teams (as a kick returner). A redshirt junior, Davis has started each of the 10 games this year and put up 45 tackles (third on the team), 1.5 tackles for loss, two interceptions, and one fumble recovery. On special teams, Davis returned a kick for 89 yards against Idaho State for a touchdown. Overall, he has 27.8 yards per kick return, which leads the Pac-12 and is ninth nationally. Speaking to his versatility, Davis runs for the track and field team in the hurdles event, where he was Pac-12 champion at the 110 m hurdles.
Congratulations and big thanks to Ooms, Davis, and all of our seniors.
