Carmel Catholic will have a prototype at left tackle this year in 6'7, 265-pound Sean Foster, who has spent the months since last season preparing for the big job he inherits.
"I played sophomore last season as a freshman," he said. "I will be playing left tackle on varsity this year. This offseason has been an ongoing process because all I've been doing is training and making my body a well-oiled machine."
This summer also gave Foster a boost into the recruiting process, as he began hearing from schools and checking out some of those programs as well.
"I've heard from Wisconsin, Purdue, Iowa, Northwestern, Alabama and Notre Dame. I visited Iowa, Purdue, Wisconsin and Notre Dame and I went to the Iowa and Notre Dame football camps."
The Hawkeyes have been no stranger to developing offensive linemen with Foster's tools and he had a good first showing with the staff.
"I got very positive feedback from Iowa. They saw a lot of good things in me and wanted me to come visit them more often and then they liked my athleticism."
The same goes for Notre Dame, a camp Foster says had a great day at.
"At Notre Dame I did very well. I did very well in one on ones and went up against a bigger, faster kids than me. I maintained every person I went up against. Everything went well, I did well, and it was a lot of fun."
