The families of Sam Foltz and Mike Sadler joined the Wisconsin and Penn State captains for the coin toss before the Big Ten Championship Game on Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
Foltz, the Nebraska punter, and Sadler, a former Michigan State punter, were killed in a car accident this past summer. Many universities throughout the Big Ten have responded by honoring the two in myriad ways throughout the season. The Big Ten Conference became the latest to pay tribute to Foltz and Sadler, featuring the pair on the coin used during the toss.
And Foltz and Sadler’s families were right alongside those at midfield to watch firsthand.
