Sam Foltz’s family targeted by thieves while at Nebraska game

Sam Foltz

A truly trying summer got even worse for the Sam Foltz family as they were targeted by thieves this weekend.

KLKN reports that Jordan Foltz’s home was targeted by thieves while Foltz and his family were in Lincoln to watch Nebraska play and honor his late brother, Sam.

The Greeley County Sheriff says thieves stole a TV and tools out of a car — losses that amounted to at least $1,400. The crime happened at some point while Foltz and his family left their home around noon Saturday and returned around 3:00 am Sunday.

Sam Foltz was Nebraska’s highly successful punter who died in a car crash in July. The Cornhuskers honored Sam during their season-opening game against Fresno State in multiple ways, including this 10-man formation on their first punt.

Jordan Foltz posted a note on Facebook about the theft and called the people who committed the crime “creeps.”

These past few weeks have been some of the most hard,tiring,emotional and trying times I’ve ever ran up against in my thirty years on this earth as I lost a friend a role model and most importantly a brother. And 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 [edited] was back here in our home town breaking into my house and my vehicles probably seeing our family as a easy target as we were all in Lincoln. So if you seen any vehicles around my house/driveway that would have been there after dark or during and after the game please let us know. We lost a insignia flat screen tv right out of our living room and blue point and snap on tools out of my jeep outside. I hope as a group we can find theses creeps!”
