A. Hubert “Hub” Foster- York

Contributor

From the mid-1950s to the 1970s, no one was more dedicated to the promotion of York High school athletics than “Hub” Foster.  As Sports Editor of the York News times, Foster became a local icon, committing countless hours to covering York High, York St. Joseph, York college and several high schools in the York area, writing with passion and a sense of community.  A 1935 York High graduate, Foster announced numerous sporting events in the area using his own public address system.  A civic leader, Foster served on the York City Council, boosting youth activities and efforts to improve city parks, the sports complex, swimming pool and tennis courts.  After his retirement, Foster continued to write articles for the paper until his death in 2013 at the age of 95.
