Bryce Foster Stats
Discus and Shot Put: Critique yourself in both throws --> strengths and areas of improvement?
I think my one of my main strengths in both, shot and disc, is just my strength in general. I think my explosiveness is also one of my strengths. My timing and consistency do need some work for sure, but I'm fixing some problems in my footwork so I can start hitting massive throws.
What do you enjoy away from sports?
I'm a big video game guy. My brother and I play games with each other quite often. It can get competitive, and I have a competitive spirit.
Do you have a ritual or superstition the night prior to or the day of a track meet, like having to eat a certain meal or wear a special pair of socks, etc.?
I always have to eat kolaches as my breakfast with a chocolate milk. I listen to the same playlist before every meet. I have the same routine in the circle that I do every time before I throw.
What are your goals for this year in track & field?
My goal is to get the state record in discus this year, and in shot I want to get my school record (68-06).
What is something that few people know about you, like you're an accomplished saxophonist, etc.?
I can cook a killer breakfast. A nice 3-egg omelet with some sausage, bacon, cheese, and some bell peppers.
Have you verbally committed to a college? If so, which; if not, which are you seriously considering?
I have not committed anywhere yet, but my Top 5 are Oregon, Oklahoma, Texas, Texas A&M, and LSU.
Your Twitter handle is The Mountain: are you a Game of Thrones (GOT) fan, and what is it about this character that attracts you to him?
I haven't really seen GOT except for 1 episode, but when I went to this football camp called the "Rivals 5 Star Challenge," people started calling me The Mountain from GOT, and the nickname just stuck. I think it might have stuck because of how strong I am and how large I am.
You're in charge of Texas Track & Field - what changes do you make to improve the sport?
I think there should be more opportunities for all the top-tier runners and throwers to go against each other. More than just Texas Relays and State. I also think at a meet like that the guys could get more exposure if there was more media coverage.
