It's a good story. I just wouldn't post a picture with a dying man that likely isn't aware of his surroundings because he's on life support.

I would have had an issue if it was Foskey who posted it himself. Now it was Rask so i'm okay with it. I wouldn't have posted it myself if it was my grandfather but that is Rask's decision.

Boy, Foskey sure is fired up to be drafted as a Saint.

He's got more gumption in his little finger than Davenport had in his whole body!

Did it leave when Davenport cut off his pinky, I wonder?

Replicated from Smashmouth's post on the 2023 Saints Draft Thread post 196. I dig it. It seems to be Allen's M.O. on the defensive line.

If it gave the old man and/or his son some solace when they needed it then more power to Foskey! Support for friends at times of need when they are grieving shows empathy and support when times are tough. This type of loyalty and compassion speak volumes about the character traits the Saints value so highly and why they drafted him.

Personally, I would rather see that picture with him being supportive of a friend in need over one of him sitting in a bar with his drinking buddies.

Really good article going into depth about Foskey's visit to his friend's grandfather's bedside. It turns out grandpa knew Foskey really well and was watching the draft in the hospital room with other members of the family hoping to see Foskey get drafted.

Really good interview here with Foskey and Rask.
