Colby Delahoussaye’s family issues statement appreciative of ‘outpouring of support’

The family of LSU Tigers kicker Colby Delahoussaye has issued its first statement since the horrifying car accident last weekend which took the lives of Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler.

In the statement, the family says they “sincerely appreciate the outpouring of support for Colby since the accident.”

Delahoussaye was treated for burns and cuts after the accident.

He was released from the hospital on Monday.

“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,” the statement read.

“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.”

There is no word whether Delahoussaye will be 100 percent for summer camp or when he will be able to return to the field. However, at this point, all that matters is Delahoussaye is mentally and physically okay after such a tragic incident took place.
