Mississippi State football

Mississippi State cornerback Cameron Dantzlier runs a drill in practice.

Cameron Dantzler has a whole new perspective on life and football.

It’s been that way since this past May.

Mississippi State’s star cornerback, who’s considered a candidate for multiple big-time 2019 awards already, will take the field this coming season sporting what he calls a completely changed demeanor. The reason? That’d be the birth of his son, Cameron Dantzler, Jr., just a few short months ago.

“He’s my everything,” the elder Dantzler said of his son earlier this week. “From now on, I don’t just do things for myself. I do it for him. If I do something wrong, I know he’s back home depending on me to do it right.”

For more on Dantzler's responsibilities as a father, plus to the Bulldogs, see Saturday's Starkville Daily News.
