Dantonio: Spartans ‘shoulder to shoulder’ facing adversity
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio was the keynote speaker at the annual luncheon for the West Michigan Sports Commission on Monday.
He spoke for about half an hour in front of a packed room at the JW Marriott in downtown Grand Rapids. One of the things he talked about was a letter former Spartan David Finnell gave him that stated three things he learned while playing at Michigan State: one, tomorrow will not be different unless you change the day; two, it’s the journey that makes you strong; and three, a man who is certain of his path pays no attention to the odds against him. Dantonio said that letter struck a chord with him.
