Alabama kicker Cade Foster receives handwritten note from George W. Bush

Alabama kicker Cade Foster missed three field goals in the Crimson Tide's 34-28 loss to Auburn in the Iron Bowl on Nov. 30. Due to Foster's struggles, 'Bama coach Nick Saban sent freshman kicker Adam Griffith out to attempt a 57-yard field goal with one second left to play -- the missed field goal that Auburn's Chris Davis eventually returned 109 yards for the improbable game-winning touchdown.

Many fans attacked Foster on Twitter for his play against the Tigers. However, the senior received support from one unlikely source: Former U.S. President George W. Bush.

According to a photo posted by Foster on his Instagram account on Wednesday, Bush sent the kicker a note of encouragement after the loss. The text read:

"Dear Cade (#43), Life has its setbacks. I know! However you will be a stronger human with time. I wish you all the best. Sincerely -- another 43 George Bush"
