Lisa Muma, a Beaumont pediatric oncology nurse, hasn’t missed a Michigan State University football game in the past four years – including bowl games. It isn’t just because she’s a huge Spartans fan. Lisa’s son, Kevin, is Michigan State’s kickoff specialist.
As the perfect send-off to his football career at MSU, Kevin and his teammates will be competing in this year’s Rose Bowl (Jan. 1, 4:30 p.m.) in Pasadena, California against the Stanford University Cardinals. Lisa, of course, will be there to cheer the Spartans on.
“Our family will be flying in on Saturday the 28th and will be staying in LA. We have a very strong parent group and have planned a big tailgate for the prior to the game. We will be able to visit with our sons for short periods of time during the week prior to the game,” says Lisa. “The team will leave for Pasadena on Christmas day.”
With Kevin’s college football career coming to an end, Lisa says she’ll miss traveling to the games and meeting up with the families before and after the games. Kevin began playing football in 7th grade and played at Troy High School before attending Michigan State.
