Michigan Sports Hall of Fame Announces 2017 Class
Andre Rison played both his high school football and college football in the Mitten State. He spent four years at Michigan State University accumulating nearly 3,000 yards receiving between 1985 and 1988. Rison was a first round pick of the Indianapolis Colts in the 1989 draft (22nd overall). He had a 12 year NFL career with seven different teams including a Super Bowl win with the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XXXI, he had a touchdown catch in that game.
Rison was inducted into the MSU Sports Hall of Fame back in 2015.
The other Spartan in the class is Lansing native and two sport star Dean Look. Look played quarterback at Michigan State in the late fifties. He played for a brief stint in both the AFL with the New York Titans and in the MLB with the Chicago White Sox.
Professionally what Look is probably most known for is being the side judge who signaled touchdown on Dwight Clark's "The Catch" play in the 1982 NFC Championship game. He was part of the officiating crew for three different Super Bowls throughout his refereeing career.
The rest of the 2017 class is made up of Mitch Albom, Jon Jansen, Greg Kampe, Jim Leyland, Dennis Rodman and Jalen Rose.
