Michigan’s Devin Funchess Awarded No.1 Jersey

Devin Funchess No 1 It was announced before Saturday’s opening Michigan football game against Appalachian State that wide receiver Devin Funchess, who previously wore number 19 and 87 for Michigan, will wear the No.1 jersey this season. Here’s a quote from Funchess after he was awarded the jersey:

“It was an incredible honor to be selected to wear the number 87 Legends Jersey in honor of Ron Kramer. I spoke with his son, Kurt, and many of my teammates before I decided to change my number and they were all unbelievably supportive,” said Funchess. “Ron Kramer was the best tight end in Michigan history, and I think his number should be worn by someone playing that position.“Moving strictly to wide receiver, I watched a lot of Michigan greats over the offseason and kept seeing receivers wearing number 1 making plays, from Anthony Carter to Derrick Alexander, David Terrell and Braylon Edwards, and I wanted to carry on another Michigan tradition this season.”
