Foster leaving Priceville for Brookwood

Chris Foster is leaving Priceville after five years to take the head coach position at his alma mater, Brookwood, a 6A school near Tuscaloosa.

“I look forward to taking over the Brookwood program,” Foster said. “I graduated from there and have coached there, so it is special to return home.”

Foster was hired in July 2019 to take over the Priceville program, who had only been to the playoffs two times since 2004. The Bulldogs were coming off a three-year stretch that saw them go 4-26.

In the five years that Foster led Priceville, the Bulldogs to a 40-18 record and four playoff trips. They made it to the second round each of the four years in the playoffs.

Foster changed the dynamics of Priceville football with his offensive approach by installing a run-first mentality. In his five years of running the offense, the Bulldogs had a running back top the 1,000-yard mark, with Jerry Burton rushing for 2,510 yards in 2019 and Mason Cartee rushing for 2,363 yards in 2021.

His teams rushed for over 17,000 yards in five years for an average of 3,565 yards a season.

Before Foster was hired, the Bulldogs had one player named to the ASWA All-State teams. During his time, Priceville had nine players named to All-State teams. Tyler Cappi led the way with three selections, followed by Burton, Cartee and Jake Langlois with two each.

“Priceville will always have a special place in my heart,” Foster said. “They supported me from the start and helped build the program. I wish them all the best moving forward.”

Priceville has started their search for Foster’s replacement and a decision should be made soon.
