Elon's Matt Foster Selected As CAA Football Scholar-Athlete Of The Year

RICHMOND, Va. (February 11, 2020) – Elon senior tight end Matt Foster was selected as the 2019 CAA Football Scholar-Athlete of the Year by a vote of the conference’s athletics directors.


Foster has achieved a 3.56 grade point average while majoring in Engineering with minors in Physics and Mathematics. Last month, he was one of six CAA student-athletes honored on the prestigious FCS ADA Academic All-Star team. In 2017, he was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District squad. Foster is a three-time member of the Dean’s List at Elon, has made the Elon Athletic Director’s Honor Roll during each semester and has earned a spot on the CAA Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll every year.


Foster and Elon baseball student-athlete Michael Borucki recently received a provisional U.S. patent and are set to file for the permanent utility patent for a project they are developing to help people quit smoking and vaping. Last Spring, he made a pair of presentations at the Elon Undergraduate Research Forum on “On Demand Transdermal Drug Delivery” and “Building an Optical Coherence Tomography Imaging System for Personalized Cancer Treatment”.


On the field, Foster was selected to the All-CAA first team in 2019 after making 19 receptions for 246 yards and three touchdowns. The yardage total was the most by an Elon tight end in the school’s Division I era. He played in 44 career games, including 37 starts, and was part of two teams that advanced to the NCAA FCS playoffs. Foster was a team captain this season and was a two-year member of the Elon Football Leadership Council.


Nominees for the CAA Football Scholar-Athlete of the Year must have senior standing academically with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0.


In addition to announcing the Scholar-Athlete of the Year, CAA Football released the Commissioner’s Academic Honor Roll for the fall semester. There were 439 student-athletes recognized for achieving at least a 3.0 grade point average.
