The Woodmen Tower was dressed in red Friday night, lighting up the Downtown Omaha sky as a tribute to Sam Foltz.
The life of Foltz will be remembered and celebrated Saturday morning in a funeral in Grand Island.

Certainly it figures to be an emotional day with Foltz's Husker teammates and coaches expected to be in attendance.
Husker senior wide receiver Brandon Reilly, who was part of a very good walk-on class with Foltz, put it well on Twitter on Friday night.
Tomorrow is going to be a tough day for so many people but need to constantly remind ourselves it's a time to celebrate one hell of a man!!— B. Reilly (@brandonreilly87) July 30, 2016
