Reuben Foster has a heartfelt message to give to Alabama fans.
The senior linebacker took to Twitter on Wednesday night to offer thanks for his “amazing journey” as part of the Crimson Tide. He became a defensive force for Alabama this season, totaling 115 tackles, 13 tackles for loss and 5 sacks in helping the Crimson Tide claim a third consecutive SEC championship. They lost to Clemson 35-31 in the national championship game on Monday.
It an amazing journey I'm truly going to miss UofA University of Alabama. ❤️ the fans and the intensity I had on the field with my brothers.

It will be interesting to follow Foster in the future. He established himself as a dynamic, athletic presence on one of the nation’s best defenses. At 6-foot-1, 236 pounds, he has an intriguing build, and he should only mature in the NFL.
Foster saw the Crimson Tide achieve so much during his time in Tuscaloosa. The loss Monday represents a painful near miss, but there’s still plenty to recognize when he looks back on his time with Alabama.
Here’s guessing most Alabama fans are thankful for Foster’s “amazing journey” as well. Kudos to him for offering such a public “thank you” to the fans who watched him grow within the Crimson Tide’s program.
