Davis High Wonder Child: Alex Foster


Will Ferrin

Alex Foster was one of Davis High’s most productive safeties in the 2018 football season before he suffered through multiple injuries. He came from the hills of Morgan, but now his smiling face can be seeing walking through the halls at DHS or driving around Kaysville in his truck. He loves singing country karaoke, baking pastries, and hanging out with his friends.

Alex signed up to play football when he was 7 years old and it ended up being one of the most important things in his life. “Football is very important to me. It is the reason I’ve made a lot of my life-long friends, and I have learned countless life lessons from my coaches and peers.” He recorded 41 tackles and 2 interceptions in his senior year of football, including one to end the game and secure the win against Viewmont High. Alex suffered multiple injuries during the course of the season, but provided much needed leadership to the team. Long time Teammate Tate Gardner says, “He was a big role model out there for us on and off the field, he’s always been a play-maker and a leader.”

Alex is a Senior and will be graduating from Davis High this spring, he will be on Davis High’s 2019 football coaching staff as a sophomore coach. He hopes to one day hopes to become a teacher. Alex has impacted the lives of his teammates, friends, and coaches immensely and hopes to spread his knowledge and love of the game to the incoming class of Darts.
