Nebraska Huskers' Punter Sam Foltz Passes Away At 22

Nebraska senior punter Sam Foltz has passed away. He was 22. 

Foltz reportedly died in a fatal car crash that also took the life of former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler. 

The Nebraska native was entering his fifth season in the Huskers' program. He was a three-year starter and was expected to be one of the best punters in the country this season. Foltz was named to the Ray Guy Award Watch List earlier this summer. 

Many of his teammates and others have taken to Twitter to pay tribute to him.
