Burglars Target Sam Foltz's Family While They Attend Nebraska Game In His Memory

Thieves took off with about $1,400 worth of items after targeting the family of Sam Foltz while they were in Lincoln for a memorial ceremony dedicated to the Nebraska punter killed in a car accident this summer.

Foltz died along with former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler in Wisconsin while the two were attending a kicking camp. LSU kicker Colby Delahoussaye also suffered injuries in the crash, which occurred during a severe thunderstorm. Foltz’s brother Jordan stated the thieves took a flat-screen TV from his living room and broke into his truck, stealing a variety of tools.


Nebraska honored Foltz by taking a delay of game penalty in missing-man formation on their first fourth down of the game; Cornhuskers opponent Fresno State declined the penalty.
