Lincoln native Trey Foster was one of three tight ends who held down the position in the Husker offense each of the past three seasons. Foster provided the Huskers with a dependable player who saw extensive action in short-yardage situations, while also providing a receiving threat.

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)

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.
