Michigan football recruit Michael Ferns helps teammate honor his late father
Michigan football coach Brady Hoke already has one of the top linebackers in the state of Ohio committed to his 2014 class.
And, in Michael Ferns, Hoke apparently also has a player who embodies what it means to be a teammate.
Ferns was profiled this week in a USA Today feature describing his selfless act to honor current St. Clairsville teammate Logan Thompson, who lost his father recently to a stroke.
Ferns, who also runs the ball for St. Clairsville, ran out of bounds at the 1-yard line after a 52-yard scamper to allow Thompson to enter the game and finish off the drive with a score for his late father, Paul.

Ferns is the first and currently lone member of Michigan's 2014 class. He reportedly chose Michigan over the likes of Ohio State, Notre Dame and Oklahoma.
