The 2018 college football season is about to begin for the Stanford University football team. A year in which JJ Arcega-Whiteside, wide receiver, is expected to be a key player both on and off the field, as his teammates have decided by naming him captain.
The captains – a total of 6 – in the Stanford Cardinals are selected by their own teammates. Among them stands out JJ Arcega-Whiteside, who faces his senior year in the team.

As if that weren’t enough, the Inman, South Carolina player and international relations major was an All-Academic Pac-12 pick in 2016.
