Spring game draws 48,000 people to Spartan Stadium

State News Top Stories - April 25, 2015 - 5:17pm

Kaden Moore stood on the practice fields behind the Duffy Daugherty building with his friends and father Saturday morning, stargazing at the players running various drills. 

Kaden was one of the 1,700 attendees at the annual youth clinic, hosted by the football program to provide children aged 12 or younger an opportunity to participate in activities on the same field as their heroes do. 

Before the players strapped up the helmets and shoulder pads for the annual spring game in front of the general public, they donned their jerseys and sweatpants, avoiding the cold while also enjoying the time they had with the younger ones.

It wasn't just the kids who got a kick out of meeting the likes of Shilique Calhoun and Connor Cook, the parents, with their cameras and autographed footballs held at their sides, took in the 90 minutes of excitement while standing next to future NFL stars, including some local players from their home town. 

"Kevin Cronin is a Traverse City boy, so we taught him in school, and we got a picture with him," Scott Moore of Elk Rapids said.

Go Green

MSU News - April 22, 2015 - 3:02pm
Ah...spring in Michigan. This morning I was literally scratching a mosquito bite while I shook snowflakes out of my hair. How can that be? One minute I'm basking in the sun on my deck and the next I'm looking for the gloves I thought I wouldn't need again until fall. It's like the weather in my state is completely confused, suffers from a split personality or just truly wants to be mean. Yet for all the times I shake my fist at the outdoors, when it comes down to it, I can't get enough of it. I love the feeling of the sun on my face and the smell of rain. I love the stillness of a softly falling snow and the raging temper of a thunderstorm. I love sand between my toes and waves breaking over my ankles. I love the symphony of birds and the lullaby of crickets. There is a lot to love on this big place we call earth. It's easy to forget, especially in spring, that every day we're actually doing quite a bit of damage to this beautiful planet. It's not that we're all consciously out to kill the place we live, it's just that the way we live can cause some pretty serious consequences.
