LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — Students at Pattengill Biotechnical Magnet School in Lansing got a Spartan-themed surprise on Monday.

A group of MSU football players visited the school to share their experiences on the field and in the classroom.

According to the Lansing School District’s Facebook page, a lucky handful of students and staff even got some autographs.

The players also talked about the demands of being a Big Ten student-athlete, and even shared some advice.

“You ain’t never too young to start leading,” said defensive back Kendell Brooks.
