While this special moment was occurring on the field, an unfortunate set of circumstances were occurring outside the stadium — as, per ABC 8’s Eyewitness News, the Foltz’s home was buglarized while the family attended the game.
No other words to describe this scenario than ‘awful’.
Jordan Foltz, Sam’s brother, posted this message on Facebook after the family returned home after the Huskers recorded a 43-10 victory.
Let’s hope the culprits are brought to appropriate justice, the stolen items are returned, and the Foltz family can fully embrace what should have been a special day.
