NFA Alumnus Signs with the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League (CFL)
Newburgh Free Academy alumnus Angelo Foster has signed with the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League (CFL). Foster recently graduated from SUNY Cortland and played football there. Foster was part of the class of 2016.
Foster played youth football but his original high school, Chapel Field, didn’t offer the sport. After transferring to Newburgh Free Academy, Foster became a four-year starter in lacrosse and set the school record for the indoor 55-meter hurdles.
“From that point on, he made the most of his opportunity,” said NFA coach Bill Bianco. “He was always so fast. It was just learning how to become a receiver. It’s just learning the nuances. He was always a kid who you’d see at the field always trying to get extra work in.”
