Any Spartan fan has to enjoy watching a player like Kyler Elsworth play. He may not be the most physically gifted player on the Spartans roster, however, he gives everything he has and will continue to be a solid special teams player while pushing those in front of him at linebacker.

Overall : One of several unsung players on the Spartans roster that play key roles that go under the radar. Elsworth did not miss the eyes of Spartan Digest in our overall rankings.

Why He Made The List : There will always be room on the Spartan 66 for a player like Elsworth. Self-made and hard working are two words that come to mind when talking about the Goodrich, Michigan native. Played in all 13 games a year ago and the same should be expected in 2011.
