Steve Schilling gets the honor of a comeback player. He missed his whole freshman year because of a case of mono, and played two different positions on the offensive line over four years. Schilling also tied Jeff Backus in the Michigan record books for career starts as a lineman (49), and got on the Outland Trophy watch list in 2010. Another in the group of players who had to endure the worst seasons in the modern era of Michigan football, Schilling still stayed and graduated with four varsity letters.
