Beginning in 1999, the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) has hosted a Student-Athlete talent show known as Mock Rock. The event began as a tribute to Michigan wrestler Jeff Reese, who passed away while training for a meet. Proceeds initially went to the Jeff Reese Endowed Scholarship Fund. Since then, Mock Rock has grown as a strong philanthropic centerpiece to the Student Athlete Advisory Committee, supporting other worthy local beneficiaries.
