NU Announces Plans to Honor Sam Foltz

Nebraska announced several initiatives Wednesday to honor Sam Foltz.

The Sam Foltz Memorial Scholarship will be presented annually to a member of the football program who embodied Foltz’s traits of leadership, excellence in the community and in the classroom.

Also, the Hero Leadership Award will be renamed the Sam Foltz Hero 27 Leadership Award.  It will be given to 27 student-athletes from all sports who exhibit leadership, commitment to service and encouragement to their peers.

The Huskers will also wear a special SF27 decal on their helmets this season.
