Watch: Friend Of Former MSU Punter Mike Sadler Gives Touching Tribute

Big Ten Network's Michelle McMahon gave an emotional tribute to her friend, former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler.

The world stood still for college football fans everywhere when it was reported that Mike Sadler, along with senior Nebraska punter Sam Foltz were killed in a car accident in Wisconsin on July 23.

This morning on Big Ten Network, reporter Michelle McMahon gave an emotional tribute to her late friend.

You can watch it below:

Earlier this week, Sadler was entered into the Michigan State Hall of Fame, despite there being a 10-year waiting period before players can become eligible. Per mlive.com, Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis had this to say:

"There wasn't a whole lot of thought that went into it, it was just a natural process that seemed right by everyone," Hollis said. "There was no lobbying, no pushing. It just happened."

Sadler is to be honored today at the MSU-Wisconsin game with a #3 at the midfield logo.

Our thoughts and prayers remain with both the Sadler family and the Foltz family.
