The winter season is well underway at Huntington High School. Coaches of ten varsity teams have announced their captains and the group includes many familiar faces.

“Being a team captain means accepting responsibility for your team,” states the US Sports Camps website. “You become the team leader and must set the standard of what it means to be a great teammate. Team leaders are essential to executing your vision for your team and setting the tone for your teammates.”
