What drives David Molk? Family and extra time in the weight room

By Staff

Michigan center David Molk's quiet intensity is well known among his teammates and any journalist who covers the football team.

The senior normally is fairly terse with reporters. Stephen J. Nesbitt, the sports editor of the Michigan Daily, got Molk to open up. The result is a feature worth reading if you want to know the backstory of the head-butting, weight-room regular and team captain.

Molk talks about why the national anthem reminds him of his mother, who died nearly 10 years ago, why he hit it off with former Michigan strength and conditioning coach Mike Barwis and more.
