On Saturday, Nebraska paid tribute to former punter Sam Foltz who was killed in an offseason car accident this summer. On its first punt, the Cornhuskers only sent 10 men out on the field and no punter which led to a delay of game penalty to honor Foltz.
Sam’s brother Jordan was in attendance at the Nebraska-Fresno State game, and he came home to find his house and car raided by thieves who walked away with over $1,000 worth of loot.
Here’s what Jordan wrote on Facebook.
“Tonight as we celebrated and mourned my brother for all he accomplished in his career, as a person, a Nebraskan and a Husker in Lincoln some (expletive) was back here in our hometown breaking into my house and my vehicles, probably seeing our family as a easy target as we were all in Lincoln. These past few weeks have been some of the most hard, tiring, emotional and trying times I’ve ever ran up against in my 30 years on this earth — as I lost a friend a role model and most importantly a brother.”
So that’s a brutal end to what was a pretty amazing scene in Lincoln for Jordan and his family. Hopefully whoever did this is found swiftly and Jordan can have some modicum of justice and peace for what has been one of the most difficult times he has ever gone through. Even if he doesn’t though, nobody can ever take away that beautiful tribute to No. 27 on Saturday night. That will last for the rest of his life.
