GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - Services have been scheduled for Nebraska football player Sam Foltz, who died Saturday in a Wisconsin car accident.

The 22-year-old Foltz and former Michigan State punter Mike Sadler died in the crash near Merton, Wisconsin, after working at a kicking clinic.

Foltz was raised on a farm near Greeley and, starting in fourth grade, attended Grand Island public schools through his high school graduation. The punter would have been a senior this year for the Huskers.

All Faiths Funeral Home says a visitation is scheduled to run from 3 to 8 p.m. Friday at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Grand Island, followed by a wake service. A funeral Mass is set to begin at the church at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. There will be a family burial service in Greeley Cemetery.
