Cats Football Names Team Captains for 2014 Season

Posted: Updated:
A repeat performer and some new flavor highlighted the selection of Montana State’s 2014 football team captains, announced at the Sonny Holland Scrimmage on Saturday.

Linebacker Na’a Moeakiola, voted a team captain last spring before missing the entire season with an injury suffered in the spring finale, was chosen by his teammates for a second straight year. The senior from Euless, Tex., gives the Bobcats a captain from that town for the fourth straight year.

Moeakiola is joined by fellow linebacker Cole Moore, a former walk-on from Whitehouse Station, NJ. The last MSU team with two captains from the linebacker position was 2005, when Nick Marudas and Mac Mollohan led the team. Moore is a senior.

Tight end Tiai Salanoa (Oxnard, CA) and offensive lineman Quinn Catalano (San Diego, CA) represent the offense as 2014 team captains. Salanoa has battled injuries throughout his career, but was lauded by the coaching staff for his work during the off-season. Joe Schreibeis, Elliott Barnhart and Blake Wolf have also served as captains from the tight end position in the past decade. Catalano’s election also resumes a strong tradition of offensive line leadership in the Bobcat program. Since Jason McEndoo took over as O-line coach in 2003, 13 offensive linemen have served as captains.

“We’ve always had great captains here at Montana State,” Bobcat coach Rob Ash said. “I think this year’s team did a great job picking guys that lead by example with hard work and performance, but also vocally. I think this is an excellent group of captains.”

Ash also handed out the program’s winter and spring awards during Saturday’s scrimmage. They include…
