ATHLETE: FOSTER MOREAU
POSITION: TIGHT END
HMMM. BIG EXPECTATIONS FOSTERED
Foster Moreau was drafted by the Raiders in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Since the announcement, Foster definitely fostered big expectations, not only from the fans but also from his fellow teammates. Raiders’ coaches originally envisioned Foster as becoming a big part of the Las Vegas Raiders’ future. They were right.
More and more impressive traits about Foster continue to be discovered and revealed. During the 2021 training camp, Foster spent a lot of time with Darren Waller, who the Raiders’ #1 Tight End. Foster described his opportunity to learn from Darren as “one of the greatest blessings in the world.”
During training camp, Waller saw potential in Foster and said that he could be a vital component for the team. He pointed out Foster’s attention to detail and how he’s smooth and on fire during their games.
While Darren Waller was injured during the 2021 season, Foster shined. Not only have the fans and coaching staff noticed his talent, the ladies have noticed his good looks!
He has proven himself worthy of his original 3-million-dollar contract. With a base salary in 2022 of $2.540,000, Foster is doing well and making a difference.
The Louisiana Guy Wearing #18
Foster played four seasons of college football for the Louisiana State University Tigers and was recognized as a Pro Football Focus All-Rookie team. He has been an impressive player and was awarded in his senior year as the team captain with the prestigious jersey number 18.
LSU’s tradition of wearing jersey number 18 was started by Tiger quarterback Matt Mauck in 2003 and Foster has been one of the few who were able to carry on the tradition. He used to wear an 84 and his first time pulling an 18 was surely a surreal moment!
While with the LSU Tigers, Foster played a total of 49 games with 52 receptions for 629 yards and six touchdowns. And right after the end of his senior year, he played in the 2019 Super Bowl where he had the chance to show more of his game to the NFL scouts, eventually opening doors for his pro ball career.
BE WHERE YOUR FEET ARE
Foster may be a valuable asset for the Raiders not only because of his skills on the field but also because of his manners and pure love for learning.
In the 2020 season, Foster was able to play with Jason Witten, a 17-year NFL Veteran. Although the time was quite short, Foster expressed that he deeply values the experience of learning from him. He even shared their mantra, “BE WHERE YOUR FEET ARE.” The mantra means that he will embody being a professional, he’ll approach the game as it is, and keep in mind that no one is better.
IN WITH THE RAIDERS
The promising 25-year-old is finally here, Ladies! People say his path in pro ball has been cemented the moment he got picked as 137 overall. All he has to do now is continue to show the world that he is capable. We’re looking forward to seeing more of Foster!
Still, his career is new, and he’s working hard. He volunteers in the Las Vegas community. We’re excited to see more of Forster Moreau in 2022!
Did You Know?
A FOLLOW BACK FOR DONATIONS? WHY NOT?
With a following of almost 70k combined on Instagram and Twitter, Foster makes use of his platform quite well. In April 2020, Foster posted his campaign and partnership with PledgeIt.org to help with the COVID-19 relief efforts. He encouraged his fans to donate, and in exchange, he gave out a signed jersey, and promised to follow back anyone who donated 25 dollars.
Foster may be tough on the field, but inside, is also a child. If you want to see more candid moments of Foster, you’ll find a lot on his Youtube Channel, Big Fof where he channels his gaming skills online. You’ll see him play and do commentaries about, guess what? Pokemons!
