Congratulations, Michigan! We know becoming 2023 Champions was no easy feat and we are so inspired by you and your incredible fanbase! So much of football is not just about the sport itself, but about the community built around it.
We love seeing families with generations going to the same alma mater. It’s pretty inspiring and just amazing to see how much school pride and love is present. These families and lifetime friendships are the backbone of the Wolverine community and are part of what makes Michigan the renowned team it is today.
Meet the Hutchinson Family
Mom and Dad
It all started with Chris (dad) and Melissa (mom). They both graduated from Michigan and went on to have three kids – Aria, Mia, and Aidan. And they took Wolverine pride to a whole new level. Melissa was Miss Teen USA in 1988 and now focuses on photography, being creative, and helping run House of Hutch. Plus, she’s Aidan’s #1 Fan! Chris was a defensive lineman for the Wolverines and retired from football after becoming a free agent for the Cleveland Browns. All three siblings went to their parent’s alma mater, and continued the Michigan legacy.
Aidan became a star football player on the Michigan team and now plays Defensive End for the Detroit Lions! He is the founder and main operator of House of Hutch – a brand hoping to bring a little light to children with life-threatening illness and their families. His sisters – Aria and Mia, are also proud wolverines and are happy to show it off.
Aria graduated from Michigan with a degree in Neuroscience and is now studying medicine at Wayne State. She is also the founder of Project InPower – a non-profit organization with the goal of giving survivors of human trafficking and abuse the tools and support to aid in their healing journey. Aria also followed in her mother’s footsteps and was crowned Miss Michigan USA ‘22.
Mia is the eldest sibling and is definitely a Jane-of-all-trades. Like her mom, she is a photographer and content creator. But is also a taekwondo championship winner and singer! She’s sung the National Anthem at her brother’s football games (we could never!)
