Foster bulked up to 260 pounds and played fullback for three seasons at Michigan. He also panned up vittles for teammates, including roommate and future NFL running back Tyrone Wheatley.

Foster declared for the 1995 NFL Draft. Although he was not selected, he signed with Buffalo and lasted until the late cuts.

“The decisions I made — I have no regrets at all,” said Foster, who turns 40 on Wednesday. “I got my college degree, I got to play college football. And I'm getting to do now what I want to do. No regrets.”
