THE WOLVERINE 2019 FOOTBALL PREVIEW ■ 25 "You mean long-haired, surfboard, California-kid Tommy?" "When you first meet a freshman, nobody ever thinks this kid is going to lead us to a Big Ten championship or he's going to be the greatest quarterback of all time in the NFL." "Tom would always come in and say, 'Hey, Big Jonny, which ring is your best ring?' I'd say, 'Tommy, you know which ring is the best ring. The best ring is going to be the next ring.' Tommy loved that. He used that all the time." "Some of the things he learned here at Michigan helped him be- come the leader he is today. You ask any Patriot, and they'll say, 'He's the first one in the building in the morning and he's the last one to leave at night.' That's the type of leadership he was able to develop here at Michigan." "He looks back on it and says, 'This made me who I am, and I'm happy for it.'"
