Fresh off of an 18-point performance against the Michigan State Spartans in Chicago last week, Duke Point Guard Caleb Foster returned to the greater Charlotte area to host a turkey giveaway before Thanksgiving. Held at Foster’s middle school, Hickory Ridge Middle School, the turkey giveaway provided meals to those in need across Harrisburg, North Carolina.
“They made me who I am today,” Foster said about his upbringing in North Carolina.
“This is why I wanted to give back. You got to give back to the people who made you who you are.”
Foster rose to prominence during his time at Oak Hill Academy in Virginia and Notre Dame High School in California, but he got his start as a standout freshman at Hickory Ridge High School. Adam Finkelstein of 247 Sports described the North Carolina standout as “a bigger guard with good size, strength, and seemingly long arms.” Foster used those attributes to land a scholarship from Duke University and a key role in the Blue Devils’ 2023-2024 campaign.
“This is something I dreamed of,” Foster told The News & Observer.
“Ever since this journey started. It’s been a long journey, but it all started here. I knew once I got to Duke, I’d always want to come back to the place I started.”
