SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Susquehanna head men’s lacrosse coach Stewart Moan has announced the selection of his four captains for the 2012 season. Two seniors, Billy Spack (Arlington, Va./Yorktown) and Trae Humphreys (Wilmington, Del./Sanford), and two juniors, Marcus Cheatham (Reisterstown, Md./Loyola) and Dave Rinaldi (Rinaldi, Mass./Boston College HS), will carry the responsibility of leading their Crusader teammates on and off the field. 

Humphreys, who is returning for his second year as a captain, will lead the team at the draw this year. Last season Humphreys had a .538 winning percentage and is expected to take the majority of the face-offs this season.

Rinaldi will return as the leader and top coverage defenseman for the 2012 season. Rinaldi is an outstanding defensive player who will have the responsibility of covering the opponents’ best attackmen.
