LINCOLN, Neb. — It has no doubt been a trying year for the family of Sam Foltz, the Nebraska punter who was killed in a car accident July 23. But when the family came home after the Nebraska football game in which Sam was honored, they found yet another bad turn of events.

Their home had been broken into.

Sam Foltz’s brother Jordan said in a Facebook post that burglars had broken into the home while the family was at the Cornhuskers game and stolen items worth roughly $1,400, including a television and tools, from his home and vehicle near Greeley, Neb.

Jordan Foltz posted the status on Facebook around 5 p.m. Saturday, in which he described the pain he’s been dealing with, and how angry and upset he feels that thieves could’ve targeted his home knowing that he and his family would be away at the game.

Well fb asks you what’s on your mind when you fill out you post so here’s what’s on mine. 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 (shit bag) 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!

The Cornhuskers honored Sam Foltz during their season opener against Fresno State.

They did not send out a punter during their first 4th down.

The Huskers came away with a 43-10 win, but the day was still spent in the shadow of what was lost.
