Freshman safety Grayson Miller was already having a great week prior to Michigan State’s magical win over rival Michigan as he learned early in the week he had earned the first start of his Spartan career.
A Spartan legacy, Miller grew up hearing stories from his father John about his time at MSU that saw the elder Miller earn All-Big Ten honors as a safety (1987-88) and being a captain his senior season.
In a career that spanned the years 1985-88, John Miller earn a 17-11 victory over rival Michigan in 1987. But son Grayson has equaled that one win in his first season as a Spartan and played a key role in a play that will go down in the history books of Michigan State football.
Not only did Miller come up big in the final play of the game, he also played a solid game overall with six tackles that included one for a loss. But that final play will be one he tells his children and grandchildren about in the years to come.
