Champions of the West. Words written a hundred years ago to conclude the lyrics for the world's most famous fight song- "Hail to the Victors". One century later, that phrase -Champions of the West- still rings true for University of Michigan athletic teams. And for good reason. No athletic department in the country can boast of the kind of success that the Wolverines have accomplished. NCAA team champions. NCAA individual champions. Olympic medalists. Michigan athletes have been all over the world capturing championships. In Michigan: Champions of the West, Wolverine fans will be able to read about the greatest Wolverine athletes and teams including Tom Harmon, Desmond Howard, Cazzie Russell, the Fab Five, Red Berenson, Diana Dietz, Jim Abbott, and many more. Michigan: Champions of the West is the first book to capture the history of all sports at Michigan. Also included are a complete listing of Michigan's more than 10,000 letter winners-both male and female. Additionally, the book will include a special section for those individuals who have been inducted into Michigan's prestigious Hall of Honor.
Year in and year out, the Wolverines have placed championship banner upon banner atop their record collection. The Wolverines have 47 national team championships, 281 Big Ten titles, more than 1,600 first team All-Americans, nearly 1,300 individual Big Ten champions, and the list goes on. While many schools note periods of success, the U-M has made winning a way of life, emerging from the battles victorious more than 10,000 times. This great tradition has been filled with notable names and spectacular performances.
