Foster wins an ESPY

Posted by Nick Scurfield on July 14, 2011 – 9:35 am

Texans running back Arian Foster won an ESPY Award last night for the Castrol EDGE NFL Strongest Performance, making him the first Texans player to win an ESPY since 2007.

Foster was nominated for three ESPYs, more than any other NFL player and tied with Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas for the most of any athlete. The other categories he was nominated in were Best NFL Player, which went to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and Breakthrough Athlete, which went to Los Angeles Clippers dunk-master Blake Griffin.

Foster won for his 231-yard, three-touchdown rushing performance against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1 of last season. It was the second-best opening day rushing performance in NFL history, set a franchise single-game rushing record and was the most yards rushing ever by a Colts opponent.

The last Texans player to win an ESPY was quarterback Jared Zabransky, an undrafted rookie in 2007 who was honored for his achievements at Boise State.

    Not only did Foster deserve the Strong Performance award, it is my opinion that he should have recieved the Break Out Athlete award. He accomplished so much despite not being drafted and being highly criticized by certain NFL analysts, players and coaches. It is truly an inspiration to see anyone succeed through heavy adversity and being doubted upon. I can relate to Foster when trying to overcome obstacles in the sense that we both use adversity to fuel our ambitions and work ethic. Be carefull when you doubt people like us!! His story is the ideal American dream came true. Keep it up bro you deserve every bit of success that comes your way!

    Unbelievable performance by Arian Foster. I hope he has a follow up year in 2011. There is no reason to believe he wont. The Texans are primed for a breakout year as well. Way to go Arian Foster!!!
