Foster Named National Player of the Week

Oct. 17, 2001

The best running back in America and a top candidate for the Doak Walker Award, DeShaun Foster, now the nation's leading rusher, has been honored as National Player of the Week by The Sporting News and USA Today.

Against a defense that hadn't allowed a rushing touchdown all year (he was the last player to score a TD on the ground during the regular season), Foster ran through, over and around the Huskies for a school-record 301 yards and four touchdowns on 31 carries (9.7 average) to lead the Bruins to the 35-13 victory. The four touchdowns also tied a school record for rushing touchdowns and touchdowns of any type (he is co-holder of the latter mark, having scored three on the ground and one through the air as a freshman versus USC).
