Boys Varsity Football · Football Weekly Newsletter: Nov. 20-25, 2017: Dripping Springs Week


Thank you for all the support and confidence you gave the players and the coaching staff which allowed us to get the win vs. San Antonio Burbank this past weekend.  We won the game 69-6 and were crowned as the Bi-District Champions for the 1st round of the playoffs.  That win secured us a spot in the 2nd around and we now play Dripping Springs.  Here are the details of the 2nd round game:

  • Foster (Visitor) vs. Dripping Springs (home)
  • Date: Saturday, November 25, 2017
  • Time: 1:30 pm
  • Place: Merrill Green Stadium in Bryan, TX
  • Address: 3450 Campus Drive — Bryan, Texas 77802

For every football program in Texas, playing during Thanksgiving week is a program goal. We are fortunate at Foster that playing during Thanksgiving has become a TRADITION!

Here the details for the week:

Monday, 11/20:

Practice: 9am-12 pm.  We will look to be off the field and completely done by 12 pm. Scout team players are also welcome to come out this week, if they are able to.  If not, then that is okay too.

We will have our annual Foster Football Family Thanksgiving Luncheon after practice on Wednesday.  It has become a tradition here at Foster and it is a great time had by all.  Basically, we have a team Thanksgiving dinner after practice that involves all parents, players, coaches, coaches families, trainers, student athletic trainers, etc that have given their time and effort during the season and this Thanksgiving week.  We will begin eating around 11:15/11:30 and be done around 12:30/1:00 pm.   It is hosted at the Foster cafeteria.
