LIVONIA, Mich. -- In a year where Michigan needed a playmaking receiver in the worst way, one stepped up in a big way. So much so that he was granted one of the heighest honors from his teammates.
During the U-M football bust Monday night, Wolverine receiver Jehu Chesson was named Bo Schembechler team MVP as voted by his teammates.
Time and time again throughout the season Chesson made huge plays. Accounting for one touchdown heading into the 2015 season, Chesson broke out in a big way under the Jim Harbaugh offense to the account of eight touchdowns in the air, four of those in the overtime thriller against Indiana, and 646 yards receiving. On top of that, Chesson also added two touchdowns on the ground as well as a kick return for a touchdown.
Harbaugh throughout the season credited Chesson's tenacity as a blocker on the offense and also making plays on special teams.
Other players receiving awards Monday night include:
Dr. Arthur D. Robinson Scholarship Award: Michael Jocz
Richard Katcher Award (DL of the year): Chris Wormley and Ryan Glasgow
Robert P. Ufer Bequest (Most enthusiasm and love for U-M): Joe Bolden
Hugh R. Rader Memorial Award (OL of the year): Graham Glasgow
