Big Ten to honor Foltz, Sadler with ceremonial coin in Week 5

  A commemorative coin honoring Sam Foltz and Mike Sadler will be used during the Big Ten's Week 5 games.

The Big Ten Conference will honor the memory of Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and Michigan State punter Mike Sadler with a special commemorative coin to be used this Saturday across all seven Big Ten Conference games.

This weekend marks the first full slate of seven Big Ten Conference games. Officials and captains will use the commemorative flipping coin to honor the lives of Foltz and Sadler. The coin was developed collaboratively by representatives from Nebraska, Michigan State, the Foltz and Sadler families and the Big Ten Conference.

After this weekend, it will be up to each of the 14 Big Ten institutions discretion to continue using the coin, or to use the traditional Nile Kinnick Big Ten Coin. Nebraska plans to use the commemorative Foltz-Sadler coin at the remainder of its 2016 home games at Memorial Stadium.

Foltz and Sadler died tragically in a car crash on July 23, after attending a kicking camp in Wisconsin. Both of these young men left an indelible mark on their teams and schools and positively impacted the lives of those around them. Nebraska is honoring the memory of Foltz in many ways throughout the season, including wearing a SF27 sticker on its helmets.
