When the Spartan football team gathers on their sideline for the season-opening kickoff in tonight's game against Boise State, you'll want to look for a local gridiron hero.
Whether you are in the stands or watching on TV, keep an eye out for #58. That's Jordan Sanders, the 6'-1" sophomore defensive tackle from Rochester. Sanders, the son of Charlie and Georgianna Sanders, is a third-year player having red-shirted his freshman season. He played high school football at Rochester Adams.
He played in seven games during the 2011 season and was a first-time letter winner, according to the MSU media guide.
