Redshirt freshman Trey Foster is one of several young tight ends battling for playing time behind senior Jake Long, the only returning tight end with game experience. The 6-0, 240-pound Foster is joined at the position by fellow Lincoln Southeast products Sam Cotton and David Sutton, who look to help fill the void left by the graduation of four-year letterwinners Ben Cotton and Kyler Reed.
Foster has distinguished himself off the field in his first year in Lincoln, earning a spot on the Brook Berringer Citizenship Team and a Student-Athlete HERO Leadership Award.
Trey Foster redshirted his first season at Nebraska.
Before Nebraska (Southeast HS)
Foster earned first-team All-Nebraska accolades from both the Omaha World-Herald and Lincoln Journal Star as a defensive lineman as a senior, but he joins the Husker program as a tight end. Foster, who helped Lincoln Southeast to the Class A state championship, had seven receptions for 105 yards and two touchdowns as a senior. From his defensive end position, Foster recorded 59 tackles, 3.5 sacks and three fumble recoveries. Foster was part of a defense that allowed a total of 34 points in four playoff games. A member of the Southeast track and field team, Foster earned seventh-place finishes in the shot put and discus at the 2012 Nebraska state track and field meet. Foster shined in the 2012 Nebraska Shrine Bowl, recording six tackles, recovering a fumble and tipping a pass that was intercepted and returned for a first-quarter touchdown by fellow walk-on Brad Simpson. Foster turned down a scholarship offer to Southeast Missouri State for the opportunity to walk on at Nebraska.
Foster was born on May 13, 1994, and he is the son of Jesse and Charlesette Foster.
