A new set of players will have their picture up in the South Carolina football hall of captains.

The Gamecocks held their team banquet on Saturday night and handed out end-of-season awards. That included permanent team captains, which went to Bryson Allen-Williams, Zack Bailey, Jake Bentley and T.J. Brunson.

The team rotates who is captain on a game-by-game basis and elects the permanent ones at year’s end.
