Tony Dungy....still holds the high school record for interceptions, I reckon. The pride of Jackson.


Alex Karras. Lived in MI quite a while.



Jerome Bettis. Graduated from Detroit Mackenzie High School.

Mickey Stanley of the Tigers still lives in South Lyon. Silver Lake. I was classmates with his daughters.

Ernest Hemingway spent a lot of time in MI; I'm assuming he owned property in da U.P.

That needs checking out.
