Target to open small-format store in Midtown Detroit

Punter Sam Foltz’s remembrance is marred by thieves

Detroit News wire services


While Nebraska honored punter Sam Foltz — who died in a car crash this summer along with former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler — someone broke into his brother’s home and car.

The jersey of deceased Nebraska punter Sam Foltz (27) is draped on the bench before the game against Fresno State Saturday in Lincoln, Neb.

Greeley County Sheriff David Weeks says the burglary happened sometime after the Foltz family left home around noon to attend Saturday’s game in Lincoln and before they returned early Sunday.

The thieves took items worth roughly $1,400, including a television and tools, from Jordan Foltz’s home and vehicle.

Foltz’s parents presented a scholarship in his name and two of his nephews helped lead the team out before Saturday’s game against Fresno State.
