Isaiah Foskey has been a unique individual since birth. Even as the youngest of four kids and the only boy, Isaiah was ready for the world before the world knew it was ready for him. With his parents on the way to the hospital and his mom in labor, he decided it was time to poke his head out. Upon arrival at the hospital, Isaiah was born in the parking lot of the emergency room.
At an early age his parents put Isaiah in several sports including karate, baseball, and track, but he developed a true love for the game of football and excelled on the field. When he was around 10 years old, he started with Deer Valley youth football then went onto East County youth football.
Isaiah attended high school at De la Salle High School in Concord, CA. As a freshman he went straight to Junior Varsity. Over the next three seasons, Foskey played tight end and defensive end on Varsity. Along with being named team captain, he led De la Salle to several state championship games.
As one of the top recruits in his class, Isaiah had 32 college offers across the country. Following his senior season at De la Salle, Foskey was selected to play in the 2019 Under Armour All-American game. After narrowing down his offers, Isaiah chose to join the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame where he was recruited to play defensive end.
After redshirting his freshman year, Isaiah made a breakout play during the 2019 game against Stanford in which he blocked a punt. Notre Dame went on to win the game 45-24. Isaiah’s 2nd blocked punt came as a sophomore against Pittsburgh in 2020 where he picked up the ball and ran it in for the touchdown. Isaiah continues to play defensive end for the Fighting Irish. He remains humble, motivated, and ambitious.
