Last July, Nebraska punter Sam Foltz was killed in a car accident.

The American football punter was due to return to action yesterday with his team, but even though the tragedy robbed Nebraska of one of their players, they haven't forgotten about him.

During the first quarter of their clash with Fresno State, Nebraska allowed themselves to be penalised for a delay of game when they were due to punt.

They then sent a tweet explaining that they were 'missing' one of their players.

Watch the touching moment below:
