Drew Netizel with Spartan Dawgs: “It’s all about outworking everyone else”

Listen Here

Drew Neitzel tells Spartan Dawgs Andre Hutson, Todd “T.J.” Duckett and Tim Bograkos that starting at point guard and making it to the Final Four as a freshman is one of his best Spartan memories.

“And then beating top-ranked Wisconsin at home in my junior year was a moment I’ll never forget,” says Neitzel.

Neitzel says his dad instilled a strong work ethic in him when he was a boy that has been the main reason for his success.

Drew talks about “being blessed to get paid to play basketball” and talks about the challenges of adapting to living overseas.

“It always has to be in the back of your mind what you want to do when you’re playing days are over,” Neitzel tells the Dawgs. “It’s kind of a scary feeling because many of us have done nothing but play ball our whole lives.”

Neitzel says the most important thing Coach Izzo taught him was how to communicate with people and says he committed to MSU after his sophomore year of high school “because I knew that’s where I wanted to be.”

“What you put into something is what you’re going to get out of it,” says Neitzel. “That’s simple advice, but out working everyone will pay off.”
