George W. Bush has a message for Cade Foster, the Alabama kicker who failed to connect on three field goal attempts during the Crimson Tide's Iron Bowl loss to Auburn: You will be a stronger human.
Foster missed two kicks and had a third blocked on Nov. 30 against Auburn, leading Alabama coach Nick Saban to call backup kicker Adam Griffith to try a last-second field goal from 57 yards. Griffith's field goal came up short, and, well, the rest is history.
While Foster has received support from his teammates, he says he's also been the subject of more than a few hateful tweets. He's also received death threats.
On Wednesday, Foster, who wears No. 43, posted a photo of a note he received from George W. Bush, a fellow native Texan. Foster posted the following photo, along with the words "Framing this."
Kudos to Bush for reaching out to Foster. It's one thing to get the backing of your teammates, but it's an entirely different feeling to know you have the support of a former U.S. president.
