Ann Arbor is located in Washtenaw County and as of the 2020 census had a population of 123,851 people. It is also a part of the most populated and largest megalopolis in North America.

Not only is Ann Arbor home to the University of Michigan, other colleges in the area also include Concordia University Ann Arbor, Cleary University, Washtenaw Community College, and the Thomas M. Cooley Law School. Of course, we can't forget Michigan Stadium, "The Big House." Michigan Stadium in the largest American football stadium in the world and the third-largest stadium of any kind in the world.

Being a University of Michigan alumni, I love Ann Arbor, even though I don't get to go there as often as I like. There is just something about a game at The Big House that hits differently than others.

Check out the list below of homegrown heroes from Ann Arbor. Most of the entries were born in the city, but I did include a few extras. Those extras weren't born there, but they spent considerable time there. Yes, I know there are a lot more people that could've been on this list, but we would be here all day if I put them all on.
