Matt Foster has worn many hats in his years coaching both high school and collegiate football. As new Head Coach of the Chaparral gridders, Foster finds he's revisiting his roots, while fulfilling his desire to shape young athletes by preparing them for future playing and athletic endeavors.

"I've been coaching for about 25 years," he said. "I have a lot of ties to College of DuPage and when I had the chance to coach here, I welcomed it. I've been very lucky to have only worked for three other individuals and all were Hall of Famers. I've been really, really lucky to be around some great coaches and I look forward to imparting my knowledge and experience on our players."

The Chaparrals, who finished last season with a 9-2 record and triumphed over Northeast Oklahoma A & M at the National Citizens Bank Bowl, will split the upcoming season, playing five game at home and another six on the road. The team hosts Arkansas Baptist at their season home opener at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 31, at the Glen Ellyn campus, 425 Fawell Blvd.

This year's team features a number of new players on both the offensive and defensive lines, but Foster said the coaching staff has done a tremendous job working with the players, running them through countless drills in preparation for the upcoming season.

"We're only playing one JV team this season, everyone else is in our conference," Foster said. "We're up against some formidable opponents, but the effort the kids have been putting in so far is fantastic."
