#42 Stan Black, Football Safety (1973-1976)

I know Stan Black played safety, but I don’t know if it was free safety or strong safety. So I am just going to leave it at safety for this list. Stan Black played from 1973-76 as a safety. He was named All-SEC twice, and an All-American in 1976. You won’t find Black’s name littered across the MSU record books, but he was a solid as they come. He was once of the centerpieces for two 9-win teams (1974, 76).
