Foreman, a Camarillo, California native, earned recognition on the District 3 team, which includes NCAA Division I teams from North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. He graduated in May with his bachelor’s degree, posting a 4.0 grade-point average while majoring in Leadership & Organizational Administration.

Before joining the Governors, Foreman earned the ABCA/Rawlings Gold Glove Award for the California Community College Athletic Association Pacific Division and was a 2019 First Team CCCAA All-Western State Conference North Division and ABCA All-Region Selection.
