Cathedral Prep graduate Damion Terry watched Michigan State’s dream season from the sidelines as a freshman.
Led by sophomore quarterback Connor Cook, the Spartans won the Big Ten championship and beat Stanford in the Rose Bowl.
Terry, however, made an indirect impact on the season by running the scout team offense from his quarterback spot at practice. His teammates say he also made a lasting impression by displaying the double-threat skills that helped him lead Prep to a state title during his senior season.
With Cook entrenched at quarterback going into the 2014 season, Michigan State’s players still are expressing excitement about seeing Terry in action on the field.

“How he handled that, he’s a true leader,” defensive tackle Tyler Hoover said of Terry’s work with the MSU scout team.
Linebacker Denicos Allen added: “When (Terry) gets that maturity and experience as a starter, I think he’ll be dominant in this program.”
