  1. Congratulations to both JJ and Ricky! It’s a tribute to their leadership and confidence of the coaches. Very worthy representatives.

    1. Agree, seems like an odd choice considering his recent almost suspension. Definitely a vote of confidence. I live in Canton, MI about 15 miles from Ann Arbor. I’ve run into 3 people that “know” Josh and all spoke very highly of him and are big fans.
