Shan Foster


Shan Foster (Basketball, 2004-08) 

The fans who packed Memorial Gymnasium on cold winter nights during Shan Foster’s four years at Vanderbilt were always in for a treat. To the tune of setting the program’s all-time scoring record, the sweet-shooting Foster was the SEC’s deadliest 3-point threat and one of college basketball’s most exciting players. He helped lead Vanderbilt to NCAA Tournament appearances in 2007 and 2008, its first consecutive bids since the early 1990s. Foster saved his best for last, putting up a career high in scoring as a senior and receiving SEC Player of the Year honors. An extraordinary ambassador for his school, his sport and his community, Foster will forever be looked at as one of the best to ever call himself a Commodore.
