All-American: Eddie Foster

Rufus Alexander

Eddie Foster, OT - 1973
Eddie Foster was named to the Family Weekly and Walter Camp All-America teams in 1973.

During that year, Foster scored for the first time since he was in high school. It was a lineman's dream scenario. With just a 7-0 lead against Baylor, OU quarterback Steve Davis was heading for the goal line when he fumbled the ball. As Foster waited near the end zone to block, he spotted the ball and pounced on it for a touchdown. Foster said that his roommate and he "had it all planned out how it would happen." The three-year letterman was a large part of what many consider to be one of OU's top offensive lines.

He was drafted in the 12th round by the New England Patriots in 1974.
