Often ranked as the greatest all-time player in Spartan history - he was able to play safety and linebacker. Health problems tragically cut his life short, but a true Spartan legend.

A lightly-regarded recruit out of Wisconsin that MSU coaches turned into an All-B1G CB and first-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings.
All B1G WR for the Spartans before becoming a baseball legend!
Only player in NFL history with more than 10000 receiving yards and 5000 return yards. 2 time All-Pro. Was a kick returner par excellence for Sparta before his distinguished NFL career.
Great Spartan running back!
Another star for the Spartans when many teams wouldn't even accept African-American players. He went from blazing trails and winning National Championships at MSU to blazing past stunned DBs in his long NFL career!
