Thieves targeted the home of Jordan Foltz, brother of late Husker punter Sam Foltz, while the family was at the Husker game on Saturday, said the Greeley County Sheriff's Department.

Sam Foltz died in a car accident a few months ago, and the game was dedicated to his memory.

The sheriff says the thieves stole a TV and tools out of Jordan's jeep, with a total loss of at least $1,400. It happened sometime after the Foltz family left for Lincoln around noon Saturday, and when they got back home after 3 a.m. Sunday.

Jordan wrote on Facebook Sunday: "These past few weeks have been some of the most hard,tiring,emotional and trying times I've ever ran up against in my thirty years on this earth as I lost a friend a role model and most importantly a brother. And tonight as we celebrated and mourned my brother for all he accomplished in his career as a Person a Nebraskan and a Husker in Lincoln some someone was back here in our home town breaking into my house and my vehicles probably seeing our family as a easy target as we were all in Lincoln."
