Who wants a 6-foot-5 quarterback with a cannon for an arm, good mobility, good grades and by all accounts a great attitude? That's right, pretty much everybody.
Fort Worth All Saints junior quarterback Foster Sawyer, who passed for 2,625 yards and 31 touchdowns last season, is still in the infancy of his recruitment and the offers keep pouring in. In fact, he received two (SMU and UCLA) on Tuesday before taking a couple minutes to speak about his recruitment and how he's fitting in at All Saints.
You attended three different schools in as many semesters. Do you feel you've found a home at All Saints? This is definitely my home, no doubt. I was actually going to come here from Day One. Grace Prep was a great experience there. Same thing with Aledo, just a great program; it just wasn't my home, it didn't fit. Coach [Aaron] Beck here at All Saints, just something different about this program. God just kind of told me to be here and nothing against those other programs, but this is where I'm supposed to be.
Your recruitment has really heated up. Talk about some of the offers you've received? Missouri was the first one, Arizona State, SMU offered today as well as UCLA, North Texas, Houston. That's about it right now, but I've been really blessed.
Do you have a favorite school? Who do you play with when you play NCAA Football? I grew up a Texas fan, I'm not going to lie. I was the biggest Vince Young and Colt McCoy fan. But, I like them all right now. Every school has its pros and cons.
You play basketball and baseball too. How do you balance all of these activities and recruiting? It's tough. Every now and then I ask myself why am I doing all of this at once, but it teaches you life discipline. Football is not an everyday guaranteed thing. I could not be able to do it without a great head coach and AD who encourages athletes to play every sport they can. It's my family too. I have great parents, a great life.
