Michigan is offering students a chance to join the football team

Want to be a Wolverine? 

Wear the winged helmet? 

Learn the game of football from Jim Harbaugh himself? 

Maybe even touch the banner? 

Michigan has an offer for you, but there is one catch. 

The university announced plans to hold tryouts Jan. 23 at the Glick Field House. 

While this could be a tantalizing opportunity, it is not available to just anyone. 

Only current students at the Ann Arbor campus are eligible, and those more than six years out of high school are excluded with exceptions for those on active military duty or a religious mission. 

There is no time to waste getting registered as the school asks for tryout packets (click here) to be dropped off at Schembechler Hall sometime during business hours Wednesday through Friday.
