At its annual football bust on Monday, the University of Michigan announced the winners of its 2013 football team awards. The University of Michigan Club of Greater Detroit hosted the event, which spotlighted Wolverines on both offense and defense.

Wide receiver Jeremy Gallon earned top honors as the Bo Schembechler Most Valuable Player, an award named for the late, fabled coach of the Maize and Blue. Gallon had a banner senior season in which he had 80 receptions for 1,284 yards – 369 of which came in a remarkable October performance versus Indiana – and nine touchdowns.

On defense, the Roger Zatkoff Award for top linebacker went for the second straight year to Jake Ryan, who has one more year of eligibility remaining. Ryan's junior campaign was shortened due to a knee injury before the season, but when he returned to the squad in October he had a big impact, and finished with 26 tackles.

Other honorees included fifth-year senior Taylor Lewan, named top offensive lineman, as he was in 2012, and who started 39 consecutive games at left tackle for U-M.
