All good things must come to an end. For Michigan State football, that quickly became the case as the 2021 season turned into 2022 and the excitement built from that 11-win season quickly disappeared and the Spartans faded back into irrelevance.
To begin the 2022 season, there was hope, but it was evident early on that the team just didn’t have quite the same juice and the coaching staff was to blame.
The Spartans also lost one of their key players in the first game of the year: Darius Snow.
Since that injury, Snow has been supportive despite not playing and he’s been a heck of a teammate. He’s battled the serious injury and worked his way back to the field this year where he played sparingly with a massive brace on his right leg.
Simply put, he was not quite the same player as he was before the injury but it was also very early after his extensive rehab. Another offseason could have changed that.
But that will have to be somewhere else as he entered the portal on Monday.
Michigan State football loses a fan favorite
Snow was a fan favorite for his entire time on campus and when he broke out as a star player in 2021 and looked like a captain before 2022, the hype train was rolling.
The injury was a crushing blow to fans and the team. And himself.
Now, he’ll be looking for a new home. Which is a tough pill to swallow considering his uncle, Percy, was an All-American at Michigan State and his father, Eric, was a star on the basketball team a couple of decades ago.
Snow will be an easy player to root for. I think I speak for everyone when I say I hope he succeeds wherever he goes and makes it to the NFL.
