A month ago, now-former Michigan wide receiver Junior Hemingway was enjoying one of the greatest moments of his life. Sadly, he's now likely suffering through one if its worst.

CarolinaLive.com reported that Hemingway's Conway, S.C. family home was burglarized Friday morning, with the thieves knocking down the front door and stealing nearly $5,000 worth of goods. Among the items missing were a large screen television and -- most painfully -- many of Hemingway's mementos from his Wolverine career, including jerseys and bowl rings.

"The sad thing is, this stuff just can't be replaced," Hemingway father Kenneth Hemingway said. The incident marks the second time in four months the home has been burglarized.

The one silver lining: the thieves left Hemingway's Sugar Bowl MVP trophy untouched on the home's living room coffee table. Hemingway won it with 2 highlight-reel receptions for 63 yards and Michigan's only two touchdowns of the 23-20 win, leading to a memorably emotional postgame interview.

Hemingway was not in Conway at the time of the burglary, as he's currently training in Atlanta for the upcoming NFL Draft combine and Michigan's Pro Day. According to NFLDraftScout.com, Hemingway ranks as the No. 46 wide receiver prospect in the 2012 draft and is not currently projected to be drafted.

Anyone with information on the burglary is asked to call Horry County law enforcement tip line available at CarolinaLive.com.

This sucks for that kid.  Someone stole what he earned and cannot be replaced. The TV is whatever but his jerseys?  come on.

That's not news...the real crime is that the integrity and National prominence of Michigan's football team was burglarized some 6 years and ago....and nothing seems to have changed since then.

Hopefully these donkeys get what's coming to them the next time they try this. Best wishes to the Hemingway family in their attempt to recover their items.

Nothing like stealing personal mementos in a small town where everybody remembers the person you stole them from.  I have a feeling these guys will get caught.  I'm sure the pawn shop guys have all read this, and will know the items were stolen when they come into the shop.

It does suck that society's losers steal from those who actually accomplish something.

Sad news, hopefully the thieves are apprehended and the mementos returned.  Thanks for the memories, Junior, and good luck in your prospective professional career be it football or otherwise.  Go Blue!!!
