Another sign in the stadium Saturday read "A Season for Sam." "Just to honor him," said Sheri Leffler of West Point, Nebraska, who traveled to Lincoln with her husband, Dann Leffler, and grandsons, Preston Johnson, 15, and Creighton Johnson, 12.
We're here to honor him." Before the game, Foltz's parents, Gerald and Jill Foltz, presented Nebraska kicker Drew Brown with the Sam Foltz Memorial Scholarship, to be awarded annually to a member of the football program who embodies Foltz's leadership traits -- a commitment to service and an ability to encourage and empower others.
Brown also attended the July camp in Wisconsin.
He led the Huskers onto the field before kickoff in step with Foltz's two young nephews, both of whom wore their uncle's jersey.
Brown and kicker Spencer Lindsay carried Foltz's jersey from the locker room to the field for warm-ups two hours before kickoff.
