George W. Bush sends Alabama kicker Cade Foster an encouraging letter

After Alabama’s Iron Bowl loss to Auburn, kicker Cade Foster received a lot of flack from fans mainly on social media sites like Twitter. He had his fair share of supporters as well, but a lot of people blamed the loss on him.

Foster missed two field goals earlier in the game, both from 44-yards out. In all fairness to Foster, one of them was blocked. He wasn’t the kicker who came up short on that end of the game try that was famously returned 109-yards for a touchdown by Auburn cornerback Chris Davis. That was back up kicker Adam Griffith who was brought in after head coach Nick Saban seemingly lost faith.

Foster got some encouraging words from the 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush. He sent Foster a letter which Foster posted to his Instagram account. The picture of the letter is below, and Bush’s handwriting is hard to read but Foster deciphered it if needed in the caption.

“Dear Cade (#43), Life has its setbacks. I know! However you will be a stronger human with time. I wish you all the best- Sincerely- another 43 George Bush”
