Classroom

Foltz has already earned his TCU degree in communications with a minor in social work. He will play the 2012 season as a graduate student.

Character

Foltz is of the highest character and integrity. He is always the first student-athlete called upon when the TCU football program has a need for a representative in a campus or community project. The respect level he has among his teammates earned him a spot on the TCU football program’s Leadership Council. He also serves on TCU’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.

Community

Foltz represents TCU in the Hope Community Service Program. He is also active with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in addition to being a Bible study leader and DARE role model. A regular volunteer with youth in the community, he was nominated for the 2012 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team.

Competition

Foltz, a first-team all-conference selection in 2011, appears on watch lists this season for the Outland Trophy and Rotary Lombardi Award. With his bench press of 580 pounds and squat of 800 pounds, Foltz was named to “The Freak List: The 10 craziest athletes in college football” by Bruce Feldman of CBSSports.com. Foltz appeared on the Yahoo! Sports All-Bowl Team last season for his performance in the Horned Frogs’ Poinsettia Bowl victory over Louisiana Tech. He has been instrumental in TCU posting a 36-3 record over his first three seasons on the playing field.
