The unheralded star: Profiling the long snapper for Michigan football

Hello, readers. I’ll try to do a better job of distributing my “bigger” stories through here on a more regular basis.

Today’s is about Camaron Cheeseman. He is the long snapper for the Michigan football team. He doesn’t play any other position. He just throws the ball backwards between his legs several times a game.

His path to Michigan and how he improved in his role — which could possibly carry him to the NFL — are detailed in my story, which you can read here.

Michigan linebacker applying to be a military pilot

Noah Furbush is not like most football players, or most people for that matter. The Michigan linebacker earned his degree in aerospace engineering and is now working towards a master’s in space engineering (a natural progression, I suppose, but still darn impressive). Furbush wants to use his education and his love of flying to become a military pilot.
