There are occasionally young men on the football field that surprise us, as fans that is.
That young man that makes the gain to set up the winning field goal in a bowl game just a season after shouting and screaming in sweats from the sideline.
That stud of a quarterback who spent two-plus years behind the university’s franchise face just waiting for his shot and just happens to hit a Hail Mary against the Wolverines.
Those men are looking Spartans’ fans square in the eyes just burning for the opportunity to make their mark, and coach Mark Dantonio and defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi have the schemes to expose Michigan State’s breakout players and Larry Caper and Will Gholston are square atop that list.
Here are five men that MSU’s fanbase should be on the lookout for to make huge ripples at the grandest moments of what’s predicted to be a bowl-winning, if not championship season.
