Crash leaves 2 college football players dead, another injured

"We are deeply shocked and saddened to hear the extremely tragic news about Mike Sadler's death", Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio said in a statement.

Another passenger called 911 to report the fiery crash that took the lives of Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler.

We mourn today with the Foltz and Sadler families. He was a four-year starter from 2011-14 and was a four-year academic all-American, the school website said.

Michigan State punter Mike Sadler and Nebraska punter Sam Foltz were killed in a auto crash while returning from a training camp in Wisconson, according to the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department.

The Baton Rouge Advocate reported that 21-year-old Delahoussaye, a senior place kicker for LSU, was scheduled to serve as an instructor at the camp on Sunday. "The world has lost a rising star who dreamed big and was accomplishing those dreams, one after another", he said.

Wallschlaeger, said neither drugs nor alcohol appear to be a factor in the crash - only excessive speed and weather conditions. He'd remind you of the Royals record and even one time he served as a one-person viewing audience for one of my sportscasts. "Of course, like I also said to them, some are teammates of Sam's, some are teammates and friends that have grown up with him".

Foltz was also a punter who played for the Nebraska Huskers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. "That's just the type of guy he was", said Ozigbo.

Foltz earned the Eddleman-Fields Big Ten Punter of the Year award for 2015 and was picked as the preseason Big Ten punter of the year by nearly every college football publication or web site. "Mike and Sam are two of the best guys I've ever met". He was a beloved teammate, and the impact of his loss was felt immediately on the Lincoln campus. "This isn't supposed to happen to young people who have so much to live for", Miles said.

By the time a prayer vigil outside the stadium began on Sunday afternoon, a Nebraska helmet with Foltz's No. 27 already rested at the foot of the Brook Berringer statue outside Memorial Stadium, which memorializes legendary coach Tom Osborne and Berringer, a former Huskers quarterback who died in a plane crash in 1996. "Our thoughts and prayers are with them", Jamie Kohl, Kohl's Kicking Camp director said in a statement on Sunday.

Counseling for the players is "wide-open", said Riley. Delahoussaye was in the back seat of the two-door auto when the accident occurred.

As it started to get late, they planned to meet up at Meyer's home.

Sadler was an academic powerhouse, earning the distinction of academic all-star four times and being a finalist in 2014 for the William V. Campbell Trophy-awarded to the college football player with the best combination of academics, on-field performance and community service.
