GRAND ISLAND, Neb. Gordan Giricek Jersey . -- Roughly 1,500 people attended a memorial service for Nebraska punter Sam Foltz to remember a talented young man who mourners said had an outgoing yet humble personality and was willing to help others.The crowd at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Grand Island on Saturday included seven busloads of teammates, coaches and athletic department officials from the University of Nebraska.The 22-year-old died after a July 23 car crash near Merton, Wisconsin. It also claimed the life of former Michigan State University punter Mike Sadler. The two had been attending a kicking clinic. LSU kicker Colby Delahoussaye was also injured.Nebraska coach Mike Riley said its beautiful the way so many people have come out to support the Foltz family and the team, but losing Foltz is heartbreaking.Everybodys really tried to stay strong together, Riley said. But it is sad. And it will be. Were all very thankful for everybody whos put their arms around us. This day is really a good indication of that.In addition to Foltzs teammates, friends from Greeley and Grand Island, where he grew up, filled the church. Some wore bright orange hunting vests to honor Foltzs passion for the outdoors.Nebraska kicker Drew Brown had been at the same kicking camp and was riding in a vehicle just a few minutes ahead of the fatal crash. Brown said the memorial offered a chance to celebrate Foltzs life.Theres so many good things you can say about Sam, whether it was football or life or the wonderful family, Brown said. Its been really neat being able to reflect on all the wonderful times that we shared.Another teammate, Spencer Lindsay, said Foltz would have been the best man at his wedding and probably at two other Husker teammates weddings.He had a way of making you feel like you were almost closer to him than you were, Lindsay said at a wake held Friday. He made everyone feel extremely close to him, which is why he had so many friends. Vince Carter Jersey . -- Jonathan Drouin gave Halifax the boost it needed to edge host Sherbrooke Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. Custom Orlando Magic Jerseys .

ADELAIDE, Australia -- South Africa captain Faf du Plessis disputes the ball tampering ruling against him, and believes he has been unfairly cast as a cheat for shining the ball the same way every cricket team has been doing it for as long as hes been playing the game.A ball tampering charge against him was brought by International Cricket Council chief executive Dave Richardson after television replays from the second test against Australia showed du Plessis applying saliva to the ball while sucking a sweet mint.The verdict was that I was guilty -- I still completely disagree with it. I felt like I have done nothing wrong, du Plessis said Wednesday, the morning after the hearing. The ICC has taken a stance against me, to use me as a scapegoat now.All I can ask for is that everyone gets treated the same.He pleaded not guilty but was found to have altered the condition of the ball using an artificial substance and was fined 100 percent of his second test match fee -- about $2,500. He avoided a match ban, though, allowing him to lead South Africa as it pursues a 3-0 sweep against the Australians in Adelaide starting Thursday.Haroon Lorgat, a former ICC chief executive who now runs the game in his home country of South Africa, said the international administrators need to clearly define what constitutes ball polishing, which is legal, and what is ball tampering, which is banned.He even brought Richardsons background into the debate, saying the former test wicketkeeper was part of South Africas ball shining brigade in his playing days.Du Plessis agreed ball tampering was wrong, but said it usually involved picking at the ball or scratching it to scuff it up to make it move differently through the air.Shining the ball, all cricketers will say, is not in the same space, he said.Australia captain Steve Smith said his players hadnt been critical of du Plessis because we, along with every other team around the world, shine the ball the same way.RRichardson told Australias Nine television network Wednesday that he charged du Plessis because the ICC wanted to draw a firm line on ball tampering. Elfrid Payton Jersey. Probably in this case in particular, we drew the line, Richardson said. We said `we need to charge because in our eyes anyway it was pretty obvious that he was using the residue from the sweet directly on the ball.If you want to change the condition of the ball by polishing it, in other words improving it, keeping it, retaining its condition, do so, but dont use any artificial substance.ICC match referee Andy Pycroft heard evidence from the umpires, the teams and from John Stephenson, representing the Marylebone Cricket Club -- the guardians of the laws of the game.Du Plessis was found guilty of ball tampering in 2013, when he breached the ICCs code of conduct by rubbing the ball on the zipper of a trouser pocket during a test against Pakistan. Under altered rules adopted by the ICC on Sept. 22, the episode against Australia was treated as a first offense.Its opening up a can of worms with what is going to happen now going forward with the game, he said. Its not like I was trying to cheat or anything, I was shining the ball. And I see no problem with that.I wasnt trying to actually hide it. I put a massive mint in my mouth and my mouth was wide open.The South Africans said there needed to be a consistent definition of what constitutes an artificial substance, because players frequently chewed gum, used lip balm or sun screen or drank sugary drinks -- all which could potentially aid in shining the ball.Its just such a grey area in the laws of cricket, du Plessis said. Its obviously something now to be looked at. Us as cricketers, we think (shining the ball) will make a difference but were no scientists, we are not sure if it even does make a difference. ' ' '
