Football Media Day Coverage
EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Nearly 75 reporters from around the state of Michigan gathered Monday inside the Izzo Family Media Center at Spartan Stadium for Michigan State Football Media Day.
Twelfth-year head coach Mark Dantonio began media day festivities with a 30-minute press conference at the main podium. After Dantonio, reporters talked with defensive players and coaches for 45 minutes, followed by the offensive staff and players.
In the morning, the Spartans held their fourth practice of preseason camp.
"(I) continue to see great leadership from our football team; chemistry is excellent," said Dantonio. "We've got a lot of players out there, a lot of young players, but a lot of players, and we're deep.
"I thought last year we sort of reaffirmed ourselves as a football program and now we need to take another step forward and our players are very excited about that."
Michigan State returns to the practice field Tuesday morning for its fifth practice of preseason camp and its first in full pads.
