All-State Punter Foster Headed For Akron
Kyle Foster has decided to cast his college kicking lot with the University of Akron.
After making second-team all-state as a junior and becoming the second best punter in the history of Parkersburg High School, senior Kyle Foster has been named to the first team of the Class AAA all-state football team selected by the West Virginia Sports Writers Association.
Foster averaged 39.7 yards per punt this year, fifth best single season mark in school history. Of his 42 kicks, 11 were inside the 20 yard line and three were touchbacks. Six were fair caught and his longest was 59 yards.
During his three year career as punter, Foster kicked the ball 98 times and put 28 of them inside the opponents 20 yard line with a 62 long boot. His career average was 39.7 yards, second all-time to the legendary "Feets" Barnum, who went on to kick in the NFL. In single-season average, Barnum ranks one-two-four with Foster ranking third (41.3 as a junior) and fifth (39.7 as a senior).
Junior Dan Fox, who scored seven touchdowns and led the team in receiving, interceptions and kickoff returns, was named to the honorable mention list.
