Michigan Football "Superfan" has Died

The University of Michigan football family is mourning the loss of 'Superfan' Dametrius "Meechie" Walker.

He died Friday morning at the age of 20.

Meechie was a high school football star at Muskegon High School and had planned on playing for the Wolverines -- the realization of a lifelong dream.

Sadly, Walker was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer and had to quit football before his senior year of high school.

Coach Jim Harbaugh invited Meechie to U of M's home game against Maryland on September 24th of this year and made him an honorary co-Captain. It was his first and only visit to a game at the Big House (Michigan Stadium).

The Wolverines won 34-27 and Coach Harbaugh awarded him the game ball.

Hopefully, Meechie's 2-year-old son will treasure that gift of love from the Michigan football team as much as he did.

RIP, Meechie. And GO BLUE!
