Michigan's Jeff Porter (2007, track & field)
Jeff Porter, the 2007 Big Ten Medal of Honor honoree, was a three-time All-American and NCAA indoor champion in the 60-meter hurdles. He also won the national championship at the 2007 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships and was the Big Ten Freshman of the Year in 2004 after winning the 60-meter hurdles. Porter went on to win the Big Ten outdoor title in the 110-meter hurdles as a junior and a senior. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in kinesiology and reached the semifinals at the 2012 London Olympics in the 110-meter hurdles. When asked about winning the Big ten Medal of Honor, Porter said:

"When I look at the company that I'm in, that's elite company, especially when you look at those who came before me, and then my wife (track star Tiffany Ofili) won it a couple of years after I did, so that's always special. We have some really good, successful people that have received this award. I'm honored to be a member of this group."
