Vanderbilt sits at 1-2, and is in some serious need of leadership.
In an effort to establish that, Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason named running back Ralph Webb and safety Ryan White captains for the rest of the season on Monday.
Mason said that Webb and Ryan White will serve as captains for the rest of the year. "They are the voices we need in the locker room."
