The recipient of this season’s Sam Foltz Memorial Scholarship is Nebraska redshirt senior Ben Stille. The 6-foot-5, 291-pound defensive lineman was awarded on Nov. 17.

Stille has amassed 14 solo tackles and a sack this season.

The scholarship is in honor of late Nebraska punter Sam Foltz, who tragically lost his life in a car accident in 2016. The scholarship is given annually to the Nebraska football player that best represents Foltz’s characteristics of excellence and leadership – on and off the field.

It’s an incredible honor for Stille to receive.

Nebraska is on the road for a contest at No. 15 Wisconsin on Nov. 20 (3:30 p.m. EST/ABC). Wisconsin is 7-3 overall and first place in the B1G West.
