#5 Michigan State is lead on defense by a young man that has the chance to be the best MLB in the storied history of Spartan Football:  Joe Bachie.  He was voted the team MVP last year, the first sophomore since QB Drew Stanton to win the prestigious honor from his teammates.

Today Bachie added to his offseason hardware by being named an All American by Athlon Sports.  Bachie said of the honor, “Honored to receive this Preseason award! But it doesn’t mean anything yet, Time to get back to work.  Go Green.”
