Defense beats Offense at Michigan State spring game


Michigan State

Michigan State held their annual spring game Saturday afternoon as the program tried it’s best to move forward amid sexual assault allegations that’s led to three players and one coach being suspended from the team.

To add the team is coming off a disastrous 3-9 2016 and plenty of question marks regarding their roster.

In terms of the game itself, the defense came out on top in a modified scoring system defeating the offense 33-23.

Two Michigan State quarterbacks took snaps including Brian Lewerke and walk-on Colar Kuhns. Damion Terry dressed but did not play while Messiah deWeaver – who was one of the 15 players that did not dress – worked the sidelines next to Terry and quarterback coach Brad Salem. It was later reported by the Big Ten Network broadcast that deWeaver was in fact injured.

Other Notes:

  • Justin Layne, who moved to defense last year played on both sides of scrimmage this afternoon.
  • Kaleel Gaines also played wide receiver and cornerback.
  • Kenny Willekes – a walk on- was starting opposite of Auston Robertson at defensive end.
  • The new starting middle linebacker appears to be sophomore Joe Bachie.
  • Josiah Scott and Vayante Copeland were the starting corners.
  • Austin Andrews came up with an interception while player safety.
  • Lewerke and Trishton Jackson may be Michigan State’s biggest connection this upcoming season.
  • Gerald Holmes got the start at running back.
  • Madre London scored a 75-yard touchdown.
