Louisiana-Monroe Offers Newton’s Josh Foster
Another day, another Division I FBS scholarship offer for a Newton Eagles underclassman.

Foster played on both sides of the ball during Newton's 15-0 run to the Class 3A Division II state championship in 2017.
At quarterback, he passed for 1,977 yards with 30 touchdowns and seven interceptions and ran for 553 yards and 15 additional scores. Foster was also used sparingly at defensive back, a position he might play at the next level.
Louisiana-Monroe competes in the Sun Belt Conference is coached by Matt Viator. The Warhawks were 4-8 overall in 2017 and 4-4 in conference play. ULM also has intriguing non-conference games against Southern Miss, Texas A&M, and Ole Miss on the 2018 schedule.
