Country musician Chase Rice honors Foltz at concert

Sam Foltz funeral

Country musician Chase Rice knew that Sam Foltz and some of his teammates were big fans of his music. In fact, he even once spent a day trying to field Foltz's punts.

So when he appeared at the Buffalo County Fair in Kearney last night, Rice showed up on stage sporting a red #27 Husker jersey.

Rice reminded the crowd of how he once spent time last year shagging punts from the Husker. "I can't speak enough about how cool Sam was to me that day," Rice said. "And he was a damn good punter, because I could barely get those damn kicks he was kicking to me."

Foltz's friend and teammate, Sam Hahn, posted video of Rice's concert tribute to Sam on Saturday night. Rice played his song "Everyone We Know Does" for Foltz specifically.

Rice stops prior to the chorus to the tell the crowd, "There's a part in this song, (it) talks in the second verse, 'Not everybody understands how we make it, hold it together when we feel like breakin.' And there's a football team in this state I'm sure that's got a lot of guys hurting pretty bad this week.

"But that's what this song's about. Not everybody understands how we make it, hold it together when we feel like breakin.' But I'm sure them boys this week are figuring it out, and they're going to move forward and give you one helluva season in the name of Sam. I want to sing that chorus one more time. This is for him, man."
