Connor Cook has fond memories of Mike Sadler.
Sunday evening, the former Spartans QB posted a tribute to Sadler, his former teammate who died in a car accident Saturday, calling him “the funniest dude” he’s ever met and “a truly special guy.”
Safe to say u were the funniest dude I’ve ever met. It was nearly impossible to have a conversation with u and not laugh at some point, and every other Spartan would say the same.. I hurt for u, your family, and for anyone who has gotten to know u throughout your life bc u were truly a special guy. You’ve impacted me over the last couple years getting to know u, and I truly appreciated your friendship… One last QB/ Running Back bonding time photo for old times sake ?? love u bro #SpartanDawg #Spartan4Life
