It was a great story, I had no idea he had experienced that event. I guess everyone has their own character building moment. Glad he has been able to accomplish so much for his mom, himself, and his family.

Beautiful story. It seems that persisting through pain and adversity with integrity and determination runs in the family. Mama Molk would be so proud.

I lost my father to cancer, but I was an adult at the time.  I can't imagine how I would have handled it in 8th grade.  Best of luck to Molk and his family in the future, have to admit I teared up half way through.

enough how happy I am for the Molk's, Martin's, Hemmingway's, and the Van Bergen's of the team to go out the way they are after all they have been through. Go Blue!

Wow.  Didn't know that and I didn't see that last night.

I lost my father to a heart attack when I was in the eight grade - same age that Molk lost his mom.  It is a really tough age to lose a parent.  That he came through it all with the work ethic and character he has speaks volumes about him, his mother and his father.

No it isn't dusty in here, I am tearing up.

Molk is a character kid and clearly what we aspire to for a Michigan Man. Listening to the interviews of these Seniors this past year has been so impressive. I guy like Molk,  you hope your son is that good, or hope your daughter marries a guy that good.

His story is heartwarming beyond measure. So proud of these guys. So proud they are Michigan.

Saw that one yesterday. Real tear jerker, especially for those like myself that lost their mother to cancer. Hell to anyone for that matter. Can't say enough how happy I am to see this senior class go out on top. A lot of people are saying we don't deserve it, I dare anyone to say that to one of these seniors. Karma lives!
