The Associated Press released their annual All-America roster and the Michigan Wolverines are well represented. Devin Bush leads the way with a second-team selection followed by Chase Winovich and Lavert Hill at their respective positions. It should be no surprise that it is the defensive side of the ball bringing home All-America honors because, even though the season ended with a rough game, the Wolverines are still ranked first in total defense according to NCAA.com.
Devin Bush had a great year totaling 79 tackles including five sacks. He has yet to make a decision on whether or not he will return for his senior season but his tackling ability and sideline to sideline speed is surely something that has scouts at the next level excited.
Chase Winovich, while also being the emotional leader of the team, also had a stellar year on the field totaling 62 tackles including five sacks. Winovich was also honored this weekend with the Team MVP Award this weekend at Michigan’s football award ceremony.
Lavert Hill led the defensive backfield of the Michigan defense all season long. He finished the year with 5 pass break-ups and one interception. His speed and ability to track any receiver made every team shy away from throwing to his side of the field.
