That time Draymond Green tried football

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — We’ve seen that Warriors center Draymond Green has no problem being physical on the basketball court, but when he tried to take that physicality to the football field? Maybe it wasn’t such a great idea.

Back in 2011, as Green was entering his senior season at Michigan State University, he suited up and played tight end for the Spartans in their spring scrimmage game. He got in for two plays, which you can watch here…

As Green said at the time, he almost scored a TD…

The 6-foot-7 Green, wearing No. 83 in the April scrimmage, played tight end for two plays. On the first, he was called for a false start. On the second, Andrew Maxwell’s pass flew over Green’s hands, but MSU defensive back Johnny Adams — eight inches shorter than Green — was called for pass interference.

“It would have been a touchdown if it wasn’t for pass interference,” Green said Saturday at LaMarr Woodley’s free football camp at Saginaw High.

“It was just for fun, something I wanted to do. I thought it would be my only chance to ever do it at that level.”
