When talking with college coaches there's a high value on players who can play multiple positions and that's something that 2016 Byrnes wide receiver/cornerback Jaylan Foster has shown early on. His talents have already intrigued quite a few schools early on and he took a visit to a nearby college on Thursday morning and he told us all about it.
"I went on a visit to Gardner-Webb this morning. It was good. I toured the football stuff and the academic buildings. I loved it and the coaching staff really impressed me most."
So what did the Bulldogs' coaches say to Foster while he was there?
"They said they really like me and I could stand out in their offense and should get an offer within the first few games of the season."
Foster says he'll start at cornerback for the Rebels but will also play a lot at wide receiver still.
Byrnes will fly to California to take on De Lasalle in September and he talked about his thoughts heading into the season.
"We are very hyped, we are going in as a underdog and I'm ready to prove everybody wrong about us this season."
Another big game on the schedule will start their season as the Rebels will go up against Northwestern who defeated them last season and went on to win the AAAA Division II state championship. The Trojans lost a great deal of talent but there's a bitter taste in the Rebels mouth. Northwestern wide receiver Dupree Hart is arguably their top player returning so we asked Foster who will get the assignment of trying to slow Hart down this season?
"We really haven't game planned for just one person, we have just been studying their whole offense."
