Most if not all frequent visitors of this site know the story of ex-UM bball player Austin Hatch but if not here's a short summary:
Survivor of 2 plane crashes, darn near everyone he was close to in his life perished in both of them. This young man perservered through life threatening injuries and Coach Beilein STILL honored his scholarship commitment to that man. He took a medical redshirt and became a volunteer coach of the team thereafter.
Well this young man just proposed to his girlfriend, volleyball/wbball star Abby Cole at the UM athletes graduation ceremony.
For my dollar this kid has had one of the most inspiring life stories thus far. People like Austin, Abby, and Coach B to me embody what it truly means to be Michigan Men and Women.
Congratulations Austin and Abby!
Hail and Go Blue!
