The name “Shawn Foster” is well-known in the Lansing-area football community, and the Grand Ledge senior quarterback added to its prestige Friday with a performance that made many recall his father Shawn Foster, who starred at Lansing Sexton until graduating in 1998 and played at Michigan State.
The Comets’ Shawn Foster, a spread offense quarterback, ran 27 times for 396 yards and seven touchdowns as Grand Ledge defeated DeWitt 56-49 – with his 75-yarder with 51 seconds to play the game-winner. Foster’s yardage was a school and family record, and his seven rushing touchdowns are tied for third-most in one game in MHSAA history. The win put Grand Ledge at 5-1 and was its first over the Panthers since 2016. Foster has committed to continue his academic and football careers at Grand Valley State University.
