TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama kicker Cade Foster received a supportive note from President George W. Bush.

Foster missed two field goal attempts and had a third blocked in the Crimson Tide's 34-28 loss to Auburn on Nov. 30.

He posted a photo of the letter on his Twitter and Instagram accounts Wednesday.

Bush wrote:
"Dear Cade ((hash)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"

Bush was the 43rd President and Foster wears No. 43.

"Framing this," the kicker wrote on the Instagram caption

No. 3 Alabama plays Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl, but had been trying for a third straight national title.
