At just 35 years old, Peter Sauer, the former captain at Stanford dies. He became well known for his performance in leading the Cardinal to the 1998 Final Four.
During a recreational basketball game on Sunday, Sauer died in White Plains, N.Y. He was a player on the Stanford team that made four straight NCAA tournaments with the leadership of Coach Mike Montgomery.
''Peter was a guy who when he stepped on the court, he always played with a huge heart,'' former teammate and current Stanford assistant coach Mark Madsen said. ''He was a great shooter and a tough guy, but when he went off the court, his heart and the amount he cared about people was even bigger.''
Apparently, Sauer hit his head after he collapsed while shooting free throws. After attempts to revive him, Sauer was declared dead at a local hospital.
A representative of the local mayor's office stated that there were no complaints from Sauer regarding feeling unwell before he collapsed. There will be an autopsy performed to determine the cause of death.
''Everyone in the Stanford community is deeply saddened by the passing of Peter Sauer,'' coach Johnny Dawkins said. ''He was a tremendous individual and a devoted husband and father. He was very passionate about Stanford and our basketball program. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Amanda and their three children.''
