Michigan State football unveils North End Zone Project

The Michigan State football program revealed its $24 million North End Zone Project at Spartan Stadium on Monday to both the project’s donors and the media. The project, which took over a year to complete, includes two new locker rooms, a training room, a media center and a recruiting lounge.

“We are a great university and we should never apologize for that,” MSU Athletic Director Mark Hollis said. “That greatness comes from looking up. It comes from looking at how to make things better. Not to make yourself better as an individual or as a small unit within this campus by pushing others down. But it’s how you build everybody up in a positive way.”

Others who made appearances at the event include former MSU football player and current Trustee Brian Mosallam, Deputy Athletic Director Greg Ianni, President Lou Anna K. Simon, head basketball coach Tom Izzo, and the coach who led the Spartans to a Rose Bowl Championship last year: Mark Dantonio.

“There is no question that we have an unbelievable football facility,” Dantonio said. “The improvements that have been made here are almost unbelievable…I’m very humble to be the head football coach here.”

The new complex puts the facilities at Spartan Stadium on par with just about any school in the country. Have a look for yourself:
