Head coach Lloyd Carr and senior offensive leaders Mike Hart, Chad Henne and Jake Long will represent the University of Michigan football program at the 36th annual Big Ten Kickoff Event held July 31 and Aug. 1 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago.
A two-time All-Big Ten first team selection (2004-06), Hart is the nation's active leading rushing with 3,679 career yards. He was a finalist for the Doak Walker Award, placed fifth in the Heisman Trophy balloting and earned All-America honors last season. Hart needs 794 rushing yards to become Michigan's all-time leading rusher. He was the 2004 Big Ten Conference Freshman of the Year.
Left tackle Jake Long heads into 2007 as the leading candidate for the Outland Trophy and Rotary Lombardi Award. A 2006 consensus All-American, Long was the Big Ten's Offensive Lineman of the Year and a first-team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches and media last year. He looks to become the first Wolverine and sixth player in Big Ten Conference history to earn lineman of the year honors twice.
Henne enters his fourth-year as Michigan's starting signal caller. A second-team all-conference selection in 2006, he has completed 666-of-1109 passes (60.1 pct.) for 7,777 yards with 70 touchdowns and 28 interceptions. Henne needs 21 TD passes in 2007 to set the Big Ten Conference held by Purdue's Drew Brees (90 TDs, 1997-2000).
