Participating Schools (6)

Sumner Academy Football - Sumner Academy and the Sumner Academy football program are the embodiment of Michael Sadler. Sumner Academy is a public magnet school in Kansas City, Kansas that serves one of the most diverse and low socioeconomic communities in Kansas. Despite these odds, our students are among the best and brightest our community has to offer. Sumner Academy offers the most academically challenging high school curriculum in the state of Kansas and is regularly recognized as one of the top schools in the region.

Our students also exemplify the high character that Michael Sadler displayed in his life. The young men in our football program are hard working, selfless, talented, and caring individuals.

Sumner Academy and the Sumner football program would be honored to raise money for Michael's foundation in honor of receiving this jersey donation. We look forward to working with you to honor Michael's legacy!

Marinette Soccer - I wish to establish a strong student-athlete image, like the late Michael Sadler, in our school when we take on our rivals,the Peshtigo Bulldogs, in soccer.

Forest Hills Northern Football - This is the high school that Michael Sadler graduated from. My son Joshua Wierenga is a Senior on the football team and was Michael's ball boy when he kicked for FHN. Joshua also attended games with his mother Karen at MSU and Michael always made time for Josh. Michael was an inspiration not only to my son but many others at FHN. Michael's academic and athletic ability were amazing but his character, humor and love of life were truly amazing. He will forever be remembered at FHN. We want to honor him and the foundation that his mother is so passionate about.

Detroit Renaissance Football

Croswell-Lexington Cross Country - This is for my guys and girls cross-country teams.
