Looking Back At The Spartan 66 - #29-25

We continue our look back at the Spartan 66 ranked prior to the season. How did players #29-25 stack up?

During the spring and summer, SpartanDigest.com gave you the Top 66 players in the Michigan State program. Now we continue to look back and see how our rankings panned out during the Spartans great season.

#29 – Max Bullough – If not for the great depth at linebacker, we might be talking about Max Bullough as one of the top freshmen in the country. Played in all twelve games posting 21 total tackles. The sky is the limit for this Spartan.

#28 – Brian Linthicum – The teams number two tight end played in twelve games starting five and pulling down 17 balls for 202 yards and a touchdown.

#27 – Denicos Allen – After a solid spring the Ohio native was expected to do some special things when he got his chance on the field. A block punt was one of the Spartans biggest plays of the season. Listed third on the defensive depth chart at Star backer.

#26 – Alex Shackleton – The best thing you can say about a snapper is you do not really know his name. Shackleton was not really heard from during the season as the Spartans were for the most part very solid on special teams. While he will never get the credit of others in the two-biggest plays on the season, he knows the ball started out in his hands first.

#25 - Dion Sims – Here was our biggest disappointment as many felt Sims was set for a breakout year. Off field troubles had Sims on the team early but not in action. Then the news broke and he was gone for the year.
