Colby Delahoussaye’s cleats hold a special meaning.
The LSU kicker will honor Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and Michigan State punter Mike Sadler throughout the season with a pair of custom cleats.

Delahoussaye was involved in a car crash that tragically took the lives of Foltz and Sadler in July while the individuals attended a kicking camp in Wisconsin.
The LSU kicker received minor bruising and burns on his leg from the crash.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Sam Foltz and Mike Sadler,” LSU coach Les Miles said in July. “We grieve for them. This isn’t supposed to happen to young people who have so much to live for. We are so thankful that Colby will be able to return home to his family and friends.”
Delahoussaye has connected on his only field goal attempt of the 2016 season, while hitting 80 percent of extra point attempts.
