Nebraska DT Peyton Newell Receives Sam Foltz Memorial Scholarship

September 14, 2018

On Friday, senior defensive tackle Peyton Newell announced he has been named the 2018 recipient of the Sam Foltz Memorial Scholarship.

The award is "given to a football student-athlete who has displayed leadership, academic excellence and outstanding life skills" and was created to honor former punter Sam Foltz, who was killed in a July 2016 car accident in Wisconsin at a kicking camp.

Kicker Drew Brown was the inaugural recipient in 2016 and linebacker Chris Weber was last year's honoree.
