The former Michigan StateAll-American punter and Academic All-American was mentoring kids at a kicking camp in Wisconsin when he was tragically killed in a caraccident. Michael was doing what he loved. He leaves behind his loving parents, Karen and David, hisdevoted sister, Katie, and many wonderful family members.
"Mike impacted so many people not only as afootball player, but also as an Academic All American and in the community aswell. The world has lost a rising star who dreamed big and was accomplishingthose dreams, one after another. He was one of those people that brightenedyour day. I always say to try and be a light, and he truly was a light in thisworld.”
