Rush Earns Big Ten Honors

Spartan Digest
Posted Oct 3, 2011

Saturday found redshirt freshman Marcus Rush as one of the key members of the Spartans defensive attack. On Monday, the Ohio native earned honors for his performance.

In his first year on the field, Marcus Rush is showing why Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio worked so hard to get the defensive end in the Green & White.

Now, after a top performance against Ohio State, the Big Ten Conference has honored Rush during their weekly honor roll.
