"Sincerely -- another 43..."

Cade Foster has had better months. He's the kicker for the University of Alabama that missed two field goals and had another one blocked a couple weeks ago during the exhilarating loss to Auburn that ended Alabama's chances for another national championship.

But he got a little encouragement from an unexpected person after the tough game: former President George W. Bush.

Foster tweeted out a picture on Wednesday showing a handwritten letter from Bush telling Foster to hang in there.

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

"Sincerely -- another 43," it ended, referring to Bush being the 43rd president.

"My teammates are 100% behind me," Foster wrote after the loss, "and I can't love them enough for that. Also thanks for the supportive messages from Fam, Friends, and Fans."
