“I went up for a rebound and just came down on it wrong and rolled it,” Foster said. “I was in a boot and crutches while the ligaments heal back together. There is a little bit of pain now, but it's getting better.”
Foster started practicing with the team Wednesday and expects to be ready for Piedmont's season opener.
One person who is eager to see Foster back to full strength is new Wildcats quarterback Darrius Burris.
“When he comes back, it's going to be a one-two combo with that fade route,” Burris said.
CLINTON PICKED TO WIN
Both teams picked atop the district have huge holes to fill.
Anadarko returns just two offensive and four defensive starters from last season.
Clinton, the team picked to win the district, didn't fare much better.
The Red Tornadoes have just three offensive and four defensive starters back from last season's 12-2 team.
But Clinton has a talented group coming up that, while it needs experience, figures to be very good if it stays intact through the season.
Clinton's top returner is junior wide receiver/defensive back Devon Mitchell, who had nine interceptions a year ago.
The Red Tornadoes also have a formidable line that includes junior Grant Lee (6-foot-2, 280 pounds) on both sides.
