DSN Top Moments from 2016


It was not always the happiest of moments in 2016. We would be wrong to do such a list without remembering for Michigan State punter Mike Sadler, who tragically lost his life in a car crash in July. Fellow punter, Nebraska’s Sam Fultz, was also killed in the same accident.

We go back to Carl Poposki as he looks back on some special tributes to both Sadler and Fultz:

On a September Saturday, Nebraska honored the memory of Foltz by lining up to punt with only ten players on the field. The entire team lined up, but, never put truly prepared for the snap. The team instead took turns pointing to the sky and pausing to embrace a special moment of memoriam as the 90,000+ in attendance rose to their feet for a standing ovation. Nebraska was charged with delay of game. Fresno State declined. Humanity won the day.

Rest easy, Mike and Sam.
