D.J. Foster electric in first game as a feature back

Aug 28, 2014

Arizona State junior running back D.J. Foster showed what he can do as a feature back in a big way Thursday night as he racked up 147 yards and three touchdowns on just 15 carries in Arizona State's 45-14 win over Weber State, as seen on Pac-12 Networks.

Foster excelled in a complimentary role his first two seasons in Tempe, totaling more than 2,000 yards. But he looks poised to up his productivity as Arizona State’s full-time starter in 2014. Regarded for his speed coming out of Scottsdale’s Saguaro High School, Foster prepared for his expanded role this season by adding strength to compliment his speed including 20 pounds of muscle. The work paid off against Weber State as he regularly broke tackles and grinded out extra yards.

Foster put his signature speed and bolstered strength on display on his third touchdown run of the night featured above as he broke tackles and left defenders in the dust on his way to a 57-yard touchdown that gave the Sun Devils a 38-0 advantage.
