Alabama kicker Cade Foster has received tons support from his teammates after fans criticized him for missing two field goals -- and having another blocked -- in the Crimson Tide's 34-28 loss to Auburn in the Iron Bowl.

In addition to Alabama players, Foster also received words of encouragement from former President George W. Bush. On Wednesday, the Alabama shared a photo of Bush's hand-written note, dated Dec. 3, 2013.

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

I respect the former President looking out for fellow No. 43's. Roll Tide.
