EAST LANSING, Mich. - The annual Michigan State Football Bust is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 23 at the Holiday Inn South Convention Center in Lansing. The reception begins at 5 p.m. with the dinner and awards program to follow at 6:45 p.m. Football Bust tickets are priced at $45 each, with $15 going as a tax-deductible contribution to the Ralph Young Fund to support the MSU football program. Tables of 10 are available for $450.
Former All-America and All-Big Ten offensive guard Ron Saul (1967-69) and his identical twin brother Rich (1967-69) will be on hand to receive the Duffy Daugherty Award. The award, named in honor of MSU?s legendary head coach, has been presented annually since 1975 to a Spartan football alumnus who has distinguished himself both on and off the field following his graduation.
Ron spent 12 years in the National Football League, playing for both the Houston Oilers and Washington Redskins. Rich, who won first-team All-Big Ten honors as a defensive end and linebacker in 1969, played for the NFL?s Los Angeles Rams for 12 seasons. The brothers also earned recognition for their work in the classroom by being named Academic All-Americans.
Reservations for the Football Bust can be made through the Ralph Young Fund at (517) 355-8257.
