Nebraska Football Players Post Tributes To Sam Foltz

Nebraska senior punter Sam Foltz died in a car crash this weekend. He was 22. 

The Husker was in an accident that also took the life of former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler and injured LSU kicker Colby Delahoussaye (who has since been released from the hospital). The three had attended a kicking camp together in Wisconsin.

Foltz, who was entering his fifth year in the Huskers' program, was thought of highly by nearly everyone he knew. 

Many of his former teammates have taken to Twitter to post tributes to him.
