Nick Benda, a 2012 graduate of Westwood High School, has been added to the University of Michigan football team as a walk-on.

After a recent tryout, Benda was contacted by the Michigan football team this morning. At a meeting with the coaches, Benda learned that he had made the team.

Benda was a two-time all conference selection in the Mid Peninsula Conference for the Westwood Patriots in 2010 and 2011.
