Cam Wysocki is honoring Mike Sadler and Sam Foltz - the Michigan State and Nebraska punters who died in a car crash on Saturday night - with a Random Punt Challenge.
The Michigan senior knew Sadler before they were both college athletes: they both played football at Forest Hills Northern High School in Grand Rapids, Mich. Though Wysocki now plays baseball for Michigan, he was filled with memories of his former teammate upon hearing the news of his tragic death.

To honor both punters, Wysocki initiated a "Random Punt Challenge," a social media event in the style of the Ice Bucket Challenge that raised awareness for ALS.
With the help of kids attending the Wolverines' baseball camp, he "kicked" off the challenge on Instagram yesterday - but using baseball gloves instead of footballs, of course.'
Will you join the challenge?
