Trey Foster is one of three sophomores who return at tight end and are in line to earn the majority of the snaps at the position this fall. The 6-0, 245-pound Foster played primarily in Nebraska’s heavy formation near the goal line or in a short-yardage formation. However, this year he hopes to join Cethan Carter and Sam Cotton as every-down tight end options for the Huskers.
A Lincoln native, Foster joined the program as a walk-on from Lincoln Southeast High School. He will be joined on the 2014 NU roster by his younger brother, Jerald, a scholarship signee on the offensive line.
2013 (Redshirt Freshman)
Foster played in six games in 2013, primarily in short-yardage situations. He had one catch for nine yards at Purdue.
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 defensive lineman as a senior. 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. He 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 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 for the opportunity to walk on at Nebraska.
Trey was born on May 13, 1994, and he is the son of Jesse and Charlesette Foster. Foster is a marketing major and is a two-time member of the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll. Foster earned a spot on the 2013 Brook Berringer Citizenship Team and has been a regular contributor to Nebraska’s community outreach efforts. Foster has volunteered his time with Uplfiting Athletes, Make-a-Wish, NFL Fuel Up to Play 60, and numerous hospital, school and community center visits. He also volunteered for School is Cool Week and the UNL Dance Marathon. Foster was the recipient of a 2013 Nebraska HERO Leadership Award.
