Waukesha county sheriff’s department said that two former college footballers, Mike Sadler, 24, Michigan State University punter, and University of Nebraska punter Sam Foltz, 22, died in a car wreck.
Local 10 reported:
Louisiana State University place kicker Colby J. Delahoussaye, 21, was injured in the accident, sheriff’s department Lt. Thom Moerman said in a news release. Delahoussaye was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment but his condition was not known Sunday.
The wreck happened on a two-lane highway in an area of Merton, Wisconsin, that’s largely rural and residential, Waukesha County Administrative Deputy Jennifer Wallschlaeger said.
Sadler lost control of the vehicle on wet pavement and it veered off the road and hit a tree, Moerman said. Speed was a factor, he said.
Foltz was a three-year starter for the Nebraska football team and was entering his senior season of eligibility, the school said. In 2015, he was voted the Eddelman-Fields Big Ten Punter of the Year and was a first-team All-Big Ten selection.
