David Ojabo was born in Nigeria and raised in Scotland. He came to the United States for better athletic opportunities — in soccer and basketball. Not until he saw a classmate switch to football and garner interest from colleges did he think about football.
Now he’s a starter for Michigan.
Read about Ojabo’s remarkable rise — and unique journey — in my latest feature for MLive:
Carter Selzer is a fifth-year senior for the Michigan Wolverines. He’s a reserve tight end who plays mostly on special teams. His story is compelling because he paid his own way (before Jim Harbaugh awarded him a scholarship this summer), will do anything to help Michigan win games, and has a sweet nickname.
Robert Zavala, a dedicated member of the University of Michigan’s “event team” — the group of people who work the stadiums at Michigan sporting events — caught COVID-19 in November and died. He was just 49 years old.
Through his co-workers and others who knew him well, I tell Robert’s story, linked below.
