Former Michigan State University punter Mike Sadler has been killed following a car accident in Wisconsin.

The accident happened at 11:43 p.m. Saturday near the town of Merton, Wisconsin.

Police say 24-year-old Sadler was driving a vehicle when he lost control on wet pavement and hit a tree.

The Waukesha County Sheriff's Department says speed appears to be a factor in the crash.

Sadler is from the Grand Rapids area, attended Forest Hills Northern High School, and was planning to attend law school at Stanford this fall.

Sadler was a four year starter from 2011 through 2014 and was a four time academic all-american, the first in Michigan State University history.

Two passengers were inside the vehicle at the time of the crash. They are being identified as 22-year-old Sam Foltz and 21-year-old Colby Delahoussaye.

Foltz, a punter for the Nebraska Huskers, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Delahoussaye, a Louisiana State University kicker, was transported to Waukesha Memorial Hospital for his injuries.

The Waukesha County Sheriff's Department is investigating the crash.

Many are taking to social media to remember the Michigan State University football player.
