His 2009 OT run against Michigan >>>>
Highlights of Larry Caper's 4 year Spartan Career. His OT touchdown run against Michigan in 2009 will forever be part of MSU Football Lore.
Good luck to him at the next level.
Great highlights! Really hope he finds a home in the NFL!
You are a god among men Pietrang.
"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
Love the Caper kick!
Your videos of the seniors and draft eligible underclassmen should be in the inbox of every NFL GM and player personnel man.
I know for a fact that two of them were used by agents last year.

someone remind me again why nick friggin hill was gettin carries over caper this season
You make any scratch for the effort?
Excellent as always. Thank you.
Some people may have forgotten just how good Larry Caper was before the injuries started to pile up (2 concussions, broken hand, knee injury, ankle injury) which affected his career as a Spartan.

Here's to Larry Caper a great Spartan and team player! I will always remember that run against Michigan. It was a bright spot in an otherwise sad weekend. I was in town for grandma's funeral that Friday. She was a pretty big sports fan and I like to think she had something to do with it. Good luck LC!
Caper abused the Illini!
Pretty sad when the WR is more enthused about blocking than the CB is about shedding the block and making contact, if not the tackle.
For all Caper's injuries and difficulty getting on the field, he sure as hell knew where the first-down marker was, and would absorb contact to get there. Nice stuff, pietrang, thanks!
Thank you, Denicos.
While his OT run is my favorite, my second favorite was in ann arbor, 3rd and 12 or something and Cousins hit kmart on short slant. Couple great moves but he is still short. Then Caper comes to the rescue out of nowhere and clears the way for a first down. Total awareness and team player.
I actually forgot that was him. Loved that play.
Did you @tweet him this?
God I wish I would have had BTN for the winning TD against UM.
Well, it did save my walls a good beating. On second thought maybe its good thing I wasn't able to watch live.
Yeah, he tweeted it out last night.
You need to put it on his highlight :)
Also bump because of article in freep. His comments were pretty open and confirmed some of my thoughts. I love him and wish him well but some thoughts better left unsaid.
Damn, missed the article. I didn't realize his diminished PT was less the result of lingering injuries and more the result of coaching decisions. I sure felt we could have used him last year, and not just in 3rd down-designated-receiver situations. Pity.
Larry Caper won't be in Indianapolis when the NFL combine kicks off today, but he will be watching. 'Pretty closely,' Caper said. 'I'll just be watching, seeing what makes them so special. See what the bigger guys are doing. See how they run, see how they catch, see how they move their feet. I'll be watching.'
That article kinda says a lot. I know its beat to hell on the RCMB but it definitely seems as if our offensive staff was very out of tune with our players this past season. I also wonder why we never explored a redshirt for Caper? I mean, we could really, really have used him next season and it would give him a chance to show off for the NFL more. Really unfortunate situation all around, but hope he does very well and blows up in the NFL. This kid is talented!
No way he would have -- or should have -- taken a red shirt. He was a senior, getting ready to graduate, had no reason to delay the NFL any longer.
He'd already taken one for the team a few times.
Disagree, I think if anything it could benefit the kid as opposed to hindering him. Not asking to take from him at all, one more year as a feature back could really up his stock. I know running backs have little time, but considering he played maybe 1.5 yrs of football for us due to injury he might have more to show.
That is assuming he would win the starting role though. If Dantonio red-shirted Caper, then someone like Nick Hill (or other underclassmen) won the starting job, that could be an even worse situation for everyone.
