Eli Foster is the second player from Franklin Parish High School to play in the Gridiron Football All-American Bowl Game joining his quarterback Bryce Curtis. He and Bryce helped the Patriots achieve a winning season in 2022 at 7-4. At 6’6, 235 pounds, Eli is long and rangy as a defensive end, but he does a great job of being patient in the running game and stopping the run. Even though he does a great job of stopping the run, he also has the ability to rush the passer as well. He can play both inside and outside and if needed, can play tight end too on offense. Not only is Eli a good football player, but he is a good baseball player as well making All-District for the Patriots. The two sport athlete will get the chance to show what he can do on the gridiron as he will play in the Gridiron Football All-American Bowl Game in Orange Beach, Alabama on December 30th.
“Well, first, I wanna say it’s an honor to know that what I do is getting acknowledged. I love seeing competition and playing with people, who are good. It adds an intensity to the game you don’t always see in high school. I was very excited when I heard I was invited. It means a lot because I want to help put Franklin Parish on the map. There is tons of talent here that doesn’t get noticed.”Franklin Parish High School DE Eli Foster
