So very sad to hear of Mike's passing. MB was a roommate, a teammate and a friend. He always gave 110% effort on every play and in every practice and he was so very proud to be a University of Wisconsin Badger football player. We will miss him, but I promise to toast his memory with fellow teammates this fall.
Godspeed my friend!

Our condolences to the Benninger Family. Michael may have been the only athlete my father ever coached that went on to play at a division 1 school. I met Michael and Roger on a football field in Reeseville many years ago as coach's kid. The last time I saw Michael was at the middle school in Reeseville. He was subbing in Phy. Ed. and I was teaching there. I just had time to say hello. When my sister Cheryl passed away four years ago, It was nice to see that Michael had posted a very nice note to her Memory Page. He was the only one from those years to do so. He said she was a very supportive friend while they were in high school, and that she took after her dad. It meant a lot to our family, and it also told me he still checked in on his ties to Wisconsin. Again, our condolences to your entire family. Kent and Brenda Saugstad
