What came 1st? Time or distance
Just thinking about bringing the players together.I don't really see him as someone who has a voice, I may be wrong.
Jake has the passion to fire the players up, I don't think it matters to him and the rest of the team if he is the captain/co-captain/vice-captain or whatever. DCE has the level head as the one who talks to the referees.
Need someone they can look up to.
