The family of LSU kicker Colby Delahoussaye issued a statement through the school’s athletics department, expressing gratitude for the number of well wishes sent its way after Delahoussaye was involved in a Sunday car crash that killed Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler.
“Our family sincerely appreciates the outpouring of support for Colby since the accident last weekend. The number of calls, emails and text messages that we have received from people throughout the country has been overwhelming and much appreciated. Colby is in good hands with treatment to his injuries and he’s making progress with his recovery.
“We ask that you continue to pray for the families of Mike Sadler and Sam Foltz during this very difficult time. Mike and Sam were wonderful young men who Colby had great admiration for. Please keep their families in your thoughts and prayers.”
Earlier this week, Delahoussaye sent out his own note of thanks on Twitter, saying he expects to be back to 100 percent soon.
