At 5-foot-6, Strath Haven wide receiver/defensive back Thomas Foster is not a player who stands out in a crowd.
Less imposing than other players on the field, what Foster lacks in height he makes up for with impact plays to make his presence felt on both sides of the ball.
Foster had two interceptions and caught the only completion from Panthers quarterback Evan Atsaves as Strath Haven rolled to a 34-6 victory over Penncrest to claim the Media Bowl.
Foster’s first interception of Penncrest quarterback Chris Mills came with 2:12 remaining in the second quarter, which he returned to the Lions’ 21-yard line. The Panthers offense finished off Foster’s timely play as running back Zach Newlon, who had 55 yards on 19 carries, scored the first of his three touchdowns from a yard out to give Strath Haven a 28-6 with 32.6 seconds left until half.
