EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State fans packed the streets of downtown East Lansing for the 10th annual "Meet the Spartans" Tuesday night.
The event gave Spartan fans the chance to meet the entire 2012 Michigan State football team and receive autographs from players and head coach Mark Dantonio.
"It's great - it really means a lot," said sophomore fullback Niko Palazeti. "You go through camp and it's long days and long hours and you get worn down, but when you come out here, it's give you the extra motivation to really get cheered on by the Spartan Nation."
"It's fun," said senior linebacker Steve Gardiner. "Especially during camp, it's always good to get out. It's always good to see the support that we get."
Earlier in the day, the Spartans conducted their 12th practice of preseason camp. The team will continue preseason camp with two practices on Wednesday.
