Meet the Spartans 2012

The Michigan State football team will play its first game on August 31st, but for fans who couldn't wait that long for some football action, they were able to get their Green and White fix at the "Meet the Spartans" event in downtown East Lansing. This year, the event was held on Tuesday, August 14th.

Fans young and younger had the chance to meet and receive autographs from the 2012 season players as well as Coach Mark Dantonio. The MSU cheerleaders and dance team were also on hand to help fans get in the Spartan spirit, as well as Sparty himself.

Get in the Spartan spirit and check out photos from the "Meet the Spartans" event.
