 #2- Benny Friedman

Perhaps the most all-around quarterback the Wolverines have boasted, Benny Friedman became the starting QB and placekicker along with playing defense in the backfield in his sophomore season. Friedman is the only Michigan QB to be a two-time All-American, and he also led the Wolverines to back-to-back Big Ten titles in 1925 and 1926.  Friedman was so good that legendary coach Fielding Yost came out of retirement just to coach him. Friedman also went on to become a pro football Hall of Famer in 2005.
