ANNVILLE, Pa. - Lebanon Valley College head coach Jim Monos has announced that Kevin Antol, Bobby Conlon, Bryan Ek, Trevor St. Clair, and Zach Smith have been elected captains for the 2015 season.

The quintet were chosen in a vote of their returning teammates and the outgoing seniors. All five will be seniors in 2015.

Antol, a safety, was third on the team with 51 tackles in 2014, including five for a loss. He had two break-ups and an interception against FDU-Florham. The Cocalico product has 87 career tackles in two seasons with the Dutchmen after transferring in for the 2013 season.

Conlon earned the starting fullback spot this season and received Honorable Mention All-MAC recognition as the lead blocker in an offense that racked up 1,836 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns on the ground. With the ball, Conlon ran for 78 yards on 17 takes in 2014.

Ek will return for his fifth year after suffering a season-ending injury early in 2014. The cornerback had an interception in the season opener at Franklin & Marshall, and has three picks in his career, including one for a touchdown.

St. Clair had a standout junior season starting at inside linebacker, making 49 tackles (six for a loss) with a sack and three interceptions in 2014. St. Clair has 86 career tackles in three seasons since transferring before his sophomore year.

Smith is a two-time all-MAC selection who started every game at right tackle in 2014. The Academic All-MAC pick helped power LVC's run game (186.3 yards per game), which ranked third in the MAC, and allowed only one sack in pass protection.
