Michigan State University coach Mark Dantonio says Tyler O’Connor – a Lima Central Catholic High School grad – is Spartans’ ‘headline guy’ at QB during media day Monday.

“He does epitomize a little bit about what we’re about. He’s a hard-working guy. He’s done a nice job with the press. Our players have respect for him. He’s got toughness, can run with the football. He’s a big, physical guy. I think he’s got a bright future for us.”
