CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Sixteen Miami Hurricanes football student-athletes have been selected to the program’s Unity Council by the coaching staff.

The purpose of the Unity Council is to act as a liaison group between the football team and staff. This group of players is selecting by the coaching staff and consists of multiple players from each classification. The council holds a weekly meeting and can convey whether certain situations need immediate attention.

The 16-player group is led by seniors Stephen Morris, Shayon Green, Jimmy Gaines, Allen Hurns and Brandon Linder. The junior class is represented by Anthony Chickillo, Ladarius Gunter, Shane McDermott and Denzel Perryman, while the sophomores are represented by Tracy Howard, Raphael Kirby and Herb Waters. Freshmen Alex Figueroa, Jermaine Grace, Sunny Odogwu and Kevin Olsen round out the council.

With the formation of the Unity Council, the team is able to attack potential problematic situations with open communications, which allows the program to function smoothly as a team in all areas.

Under the direction of third-year head coach Al Golden, the Hurricanes open preseason practice – #CanesCamp – at 8:20 a.m. Saturday on the Greentree Practice Fields.
