EAST LANSING, Mich. - Adult men (18 and older) are invited to enroll in the eighth-annual Spartan Football Fantasy Camp, scheduled for June 10-11 on the Michigan State campus. The entire Michigan State coaching staff, led by head coach Mark Dantonio, will conduct offensive and defensive drills and a 7-on-7 scrimmage.
The non-contact practice sessions will be held in Spartan Stadium, and one of the fantasy camp highlights is the player introductions by the public address announcer. All practice gear - including game jerseys, shoes and authentic keepsakes - will be provided.
The program also includes a tour of the 25,000-square-foot Skandalaris Football Center, dinner and breakfast with the MSU coaching staff and a camp-ending dinner with distinguished alumni and former players.

Bill Burke (quarterback, 1996-99),
Tico Duckett (running back, 1989-92),
