Spartans welcome home football team

Posted: Updated:

(01/02/14) - It's a Sparty Party in East Lansing now that the team is back in town.

Fans and students gave them a warm welcome home after their big Rose Bowl victory in California.

For more than an hour, Spartan fans waited outside the football center to welcome home their boys.

"I've been at every game this season, every home game, and this is the way I know how to celebrate their wonderful victory and their arrival home," said fan Debbie Boyd.

The players appreciate the warm welcome, even in the frigid cold.

"As soon as we pull up on the bus, I'm looking around, smiling, just so happy to have this fan base come here and people appreciate what you do out there, we appreciate them as much as they appreciate us," said Linebacker Kyler Elsworth.

"This is a great crowd here and we're excited to be back home," said MSU Athletic Director Mark Hollis.
