Foss caps busy two-sport week with big Shrine Bowl effort
CEDAR FALLS (July 21) -- It was a remarkable eight-day stretch for recent Harlan Community graduate Nick Foss.
But then again, Foss has been a remarkable Cyclone student-athlete for some time now.
Doing his best Bo Jackson impersonation, Foss split time between baseball and football - Harlan and Cedar Falls - last week and capped it off with an impressive performance in the 2018 Iowa Shrine Bowl All-Star Football Classic.
Foss, who finished his prep career with a school-record 6,081 all-purpose yards and 71 touchdowns, rushed for a team-high 179 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries, including one 72-yard TD jaunt, as the South squad routed the North 59-14 inside the UNI-Dome Saturday night. Foss was an offensive captain for the South, which won the Shrine Bowl for the seventh year in a row.
Also competing for the South was AHSTW lineman AJ Sieh, who will continue his football career this fall at Northwest Missouri State.
In between practices for the Shrine Bowl, Foss also found time to help the HCHS baseball team win three district and substate games to clinch its eighth consecutive trip to the state tournament. Batting cleanup and playing center field, Foss finished 4-for-9 at the plate with two doubles, a home run and six RBI.
