Austin Hatch has been through as much as any person can possibly go through in life, surviving two plane crashes where he lost both of his parents and a subsequent road to recovery to be able to play at Michigan.

His playing career came to a close earlier than expected, but he has remained a member of the program and was honored with his fellow seniors on Sunday afternoon prior to the game at Crisler Center against Ohio State.

Hatch was also announced with the starting lineup before the game, so John Beilein did everything he could to make Sunday a special day for a special young man.
