Brian Hung personified sportsmanship as a four-time letter winner on the University of Michigan tennis team. Though he initially struggled to adjust after coming to Ann Arbor from his native Hong Kong, Brian overcame his homesickness and culture shock to grow into a respected leader. The two-time Wolverine captain completed his four-year college career without collecting a single code violation (point penalty). A three-time winner of the team’s sportsmanship award, Brian always gave opponents the benefit of the doubt on line calls. He also received the 2007 Intercollegiate Tennis Association / Arthur Ashe Award for Leadership & Sportsmanship for the Midwest region. Brian’s on-court success included an 81-58 singles record and a 92-49 doubles record, along with All-Big Ten and All-America honors. A three-time ITA Scholar-Athlete and Academic All-Big Ten selection, Brian graduated with High Distinction from Michigan’s Ross School of Business, recording a 3.75 GPA. In addition, he frequently visited a local children’s hospital, participated in a Pen Pal program connecting undeserved grade school children and student-athletes, and mentored young students in the local school system.
Brian is the recipient of the NCAA’s Sportsmanship Award.
