The 2022 Ohio State football season kicks off in three weeks and on Saturday, nine practices into this fall camp, the team’s captains were named following a players vote. Six Buckeyes, led by repeat captain and Block O jersey recipient Kam Babb, will lead the Buckeyes in 2022.
Those captains include fourth-year Buckeye tight end Cade Stover, a graduate of Lexington High School.
In addition to Babb and Stover, the captains from the offensive side of the ball include overall leading vote getter C.J. Stroud.
The captains on defense feature fifth-year defensive lineman Tyler Friday, fourth-year linebacker Tommy Eichenberg and third-year safety Kourt Williams.
