Mitch Zajac spent four years saving touchdowns as a linebacker on the Western Michigan football team. Last month, the former Broncos star helped save a life on an icy stretch of I-96. Driving to work at 5 a.m. on the eastbound highway near Howell, the Holt native came across a two-car crash that left a midsize SUV flipped on its roof and straddling the shoulder and the left lane.

A valiant effort against nationally ranked USC ended with a lifelong lesson for the 2017 Western Michigan football team. Trailing 48-31 in the final minutes, WMU head coach Tim Lester instructed his team to hold back on the extra point following USC’s final touchdown, so Jake Olson, a blind long snapper for the Trojans, could make his college football dream a reality.
