Angleton’s B.J. Foster helps out during hurricane

B.J. Foster is the top-rated high school football player in Texas.

The Angleton High School two-way standout came to Houston on Sept. 16 and helped the Wildcats improve to 2-0 on the season with a 66-0 victory over Chavez at Barnett Stadium.

The senior 6-foot-3 and 195-pound Foster contributed 84 rushing yards on just four carries, including touchdown runs of 21 and 39 yards. While playing defensive back, Foster created a turnover by forcing a fumble in the contest.

“We had a good week of preparation for this game,” said Foster, who has six touchdowns on the season. “I just wanted to come out and do the best I can so that we could come out with the victory.”

Foster lives with his family in Rosharon. Parts of Rosharon and Angleton suffered flooding during Hurricane Harvey.

“I got a chance to spend time with my family during the storm,” he said. “We actually had fun and went gar fishing in a little pond down the road.

“Where we live is up on high ground, but some people around us had houses that got flooded so we brought them food and did anything they needed,” Foster said.

The University of Texas commit has an affinity for livestock and owns two horses. “The horses were good. They were high up in the stalls. We took care of all our animals.”

Although he didn’t have any relatives in Houston affected by the flooding, he was concerned about some close friends.

“I know that Al’vonte (Woodard) from Lamar and Keondre (Coburn) of Westfield went through some things,” he said.

Foster says he’ll play safety on the college level.
