Roy Foster’s football career can be summed up in one word: winner. During his time at USC, then with Miami and San Francisco in the NFL, teams he played for went 155-71-2. He was not only the first offensive lineman to win the Morris Trophy, he was the first two time winner and is one of only three men (Lincoln Kennedy and Alex Mack) to win the offensive award twice. Foster was a three time all conference player and was named USC’s Offensive Player of the Year in 1981. He played in the 1979 and 1980 Rose Bowls and the 1982 Fiesta Bowl. He spent 12 seasons in the NFL with the Dolphins and Forty Niners and played in Super Bowls XVII and XIX. In 2013 he returned to Seattle as the Morris Trophy lunch guest speaker and presented the awards that year to Will Sutton and Xavier Su’a-Filo.
