Retired Jerseys
11, 47, 48, 87, and 98
Tom Harmon
All three Wistert brothers wore #11
Gerald Ford’s
jersey, 48,
became the fifth
to be retired,
Oct. 8, 1994
Bennie
Oosterbaan’s
“47” was the
first jersey
retired.
Gerald R. Ford is
not only one of
Michigan’s most
famous and important
graduates, but he is
also one of the
University’s great student-athletes. On Oct.
8, 1994, Michigan
retired his jersey number 48 during halftime
of the Wolverines’
game against
Michigan State.
Ford’s jersey
became just the fifth
in Michigan’s illustrious history to be
retired. The five jersey
numbers honor seven
players because three
Wolverines — the
Wistert brothers —
each wore number
11. Six of the players
are linemen and all were two-way players.
Years after the retirement of Bennie
Oosterbaan’s “47,” it was announced that
“11” would disappear forever from the
Michigan rosters, giving special recognition
to three of the Wolverines greatest tackles,
Francis, Albert and Alvin Wistert. Tom
Harmon, “Old 98,” had his number retired
after winning the Heisman Trophy in 1940
and Ron Kramer’s “87” never will be worn by
another Wolverine because he was the epitome of the rugged defensive end and also
made impossible catches as an offensive end.
Though Ford’s football accomplishments
may pale in comparison with his political
achievements, the same would be said for
any ex-President of the United States.
While at Michigan, Ford earned three
varsity letters from 1932-34 and was named
Michigan Most Valuable Player his senior
year as a starting center. On Jan. 1, 1935,
Ford played on the East Team in the Shrine

Former equipment manager Henry Hatch (above)
displays four of Michigan’s retired jerseys.
Crippled Children’s Hospital game in San
Francisco. In 1935, he played in the all-star
game against the World Champion Chicago
Bears following his standout senior season.
Ford, a 1935 Michigan graduate, received
his law degree from Yale in 1941 while also
serving as an assistant football coach there. He
went on to serve in the Navy for four years of
active duty and returned home in 1946 with
the rank of Lieutenant Commander.
On Jan. 3, 1949 Ford was sworn into
Congress.
The Grand Rapids native, also a member of
the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame, was known
as a “congressman’s congressman,” and was
elected as the minority leader of the House of
Representatives in 1965. He would later be
named Vice President, and then President of
the United States in 1974.

“I never wanted to be part of the limelight. I only wanted to be part of the team. To leave Michigan
with a Big Ten championship, Rose Bowl championship and national title is a dream. It’s the way you
want to leave any program, winning a national championship and going out a winner.”
Brian Griese, Quarterback — 1997 National Championship Team
“When I came to Michigan, I read so much about what it was like to beat Ohio State, to win
the Big Ten and to go to the Rose Bowl. To have it all, I can’t even begin to describe it.”
Jon Jansen, Offensive Tackle — Captain of 1997 National Championship Team
