Former Alabama LB Reuben Foster has impressive UFL debut for Houston Roughnecks

One former Alabama Crimson Tide linebacker starred in his UFL (United Football League) debut. On Sunday, Houston Roughnecks linebacker Reuben Foster recorded six tackles and one interception.

Foster has had an uphill battle since declaring for the NFL draft in 2017. He has had to overcome multiple injuries and off-the-field issues to get to where he is now. However, Foster has persevered and has put himself in a position to earn a spot on an NFL roster in the future.

Last year, Foster suited up for the Pittsburgh Maulers of the USFL. As a Mauler, Foster recorded 52 tackles and one interception.

It will be interesting to see how Foster performs in the newly-created, UFL  this season. He is one of several former five-star recruits participating in the league this season.

Roll Tide Wire will continue to follow former Alabama football players in the UFL.
