WR Gallon looks to top off amazing year with bowl victory

Jeremy Gallon took on wearing Desmond Howard's #21 legend's jersey this season and Jeremy has done the honor proud as he has had a fantastic Senior season.  Jeremy set the Big Ten record for receiving yards in a single game (369 vs. Indiana on 10-19-13) and finished second in the conference in receiving yards per game through the 2013 regular season (12 games, 107 ypg). For these accomplishments and more, Jeremy was voted by his teammates as the 2013 Bo Schembechler Team MVP.

Jeremy has posted a reception in a program record tying 38 straight games.  Furthermore, in his last seven games, Jeremy has caught at least 5 passes each game.  In 2013, Jeremy became the 10th player in Michigan Football history to surpass 1,000 receiving yards in a single season.  In fact, Jeremy is only 47 yards shy of setting a new Michigan single-season mark for receiving yards. However, he has a new QB who will be throwing him the ball in his final game as Devin Gardner is out with an injury.  It will be interesting to see if true freshman QB Shane Morris, who will be making his first start, will be able to deliver the ball to Jeremy.  Jeremy will likely have a huge game as he does for Shane Morris what Braylon Edwards did for a then true freshman Chad Henne in 2004.  That is, Jeremy will likely be the go-to guy for the youngster as Morris tries to find his way.  Jeremy should finish his stellar Michigan career with a big game tonight. Go Blue!

12/29/13- Post-game Update:  Jeremy caught 9 passes for 89 yards and broke the Michigan records for single-season receiving yards and consecutive games with a catch (39).  For good measure, Jeremy also completed a pass to Justice Hayes for a successful two-point conversion. Go Blue!
