WATCH: Steven Izzo gets emotional talking about Senior Night, playing for Tom Izzo

Wednesday is Senior Night for Michigan State basketball, and that has a lot of meaning for the Izzo family, as it marks the end of Tom Izzo’s son Steven’s journey at Michigan State basketball as a walk-on player.

In one of the most heart-warming videos you’ll see this year, Steven Izzo gets choked up talking about playing for his dad, and what it meant for his dad to be willing to take some heat for bringing his son into the program, especially at his 5’8″ height.

SpartanMag had the video, which you can watch below:
