2016 Outlook
Senior Trey Foster is one of three veteran tight ends with extensive playing experience who return to the Husker offense for the 2016 season. Foster joins fellow seniors Cethan Carter and Sam Cotton in making the position one of the most experienced units on the Nebraska roster.

The 6-2, 250-pound Foster has seen action each of the past three seasons, with the majority of his playing time in short-yardage situations. A Lincoln Southeast graduate, Foster walked on to the Husker program but was rewarded for his efforts with a scholarship prior to the 2015 season. Foster is joined on the NU roster by his younger brother, Jerald, a sophomore offensive guard.

2015 (Junior)
Foster played in 10 games at tight end, including each of the final eight games of the season. Foster suffered an ankle injury in fall camp that slowed him for much of the first half of the year and caused him to miss three games. Foster had one reception, a nine-yard touchdown grab in the opener against BYU. He was also a strong blocker at the line of scrimmage.

2014 (Sophomore)

Foster saw action in eight games, making his first career start against Northwestern. He had a six-yard reception against the Wildcats. 

2013 (Redshirt Freshman)
Foster played in six games in 2013, primarily in short-yardage situations. He had one catch for nine yards at Purdue.

2012 (Redshirt)
Foster redshirted in his first season in the program in 2012.

Before Nebraska (Southeast HS)
Foster earned first-team All-Nebraska accolades from both the Omaha World-Herald and Lincoln Journal Star as a senior defensive lineman. 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 earned seventh-place finishes in both 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. Foster turned down a scholarship offer to Southeast Missouri State to walk on at Nebraska.

The son of Jesse and Charlesette Foster, Trey was born on May 13, 1994. He is a marketing major and is a two-time member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll. He earned a spot on the 2013 and 2015 Brook Berringer Citizenship Teams. Foster has been a regular contributor to Nebraska’s community outreach efforts. Volunteering his time with Uplifting Athletes, Make-a-Wish, NFL Fuel Up to Play 60, Pilger tornado relief and numerous hospital, school and community center visits.
