In a gesture from one "43" to another, former President George W. Bush sent a note of encouragement to the University of Alabama's Cade Foster, #43 on the third-ranked football team.
Foster missed two field goals and had a third blocked in the team's loss to Auburn University last month.
Bush sent Foster, a fellow Texan, a handwritten note after the loss. The kicker shared a photo of the letter on his Twitter and Instagram accounts:
Dear Cade (#43), life has it's setbacks. I know! However, you will be stronger with time..Sincerely- George Bush pic.twitter.com/jesykfKpDx

"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," the note says.
