LISTEN - A Green And White Dream: A Young Teen Really Wants To Play Football For Michigan State

Mike Mitchelson

SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich. – His college days are still years off, but 13-year-old Landen Mitchelson knows exactly what his future looks like. 

He wants to be a college football player, specifically, for Michigan State.

“He has the most motivation I’ve ever seen in a kid, to play a sport. That’s great that he wants to do that, but I’ve always told him he needs to come up with a backup plan,” said Mitchelson’s mother Andrea Hobbs. 

WKAR Current Sports checked in on the aspiring Spartan and his journey.
