An undrafted rookie out of the University of Tennessee, Foster went on to become a Pro-Bowl running back for the NFL’s Houston Texans, playing eight seasons in the NFL. During his impressive career, Foster racked up numerous awards including being a four-time Pro-Bowl selection (2010-2012, 2014), 1st Team All-Pro (2010), 2nd Team All-Pro (2011), and led the NFL in both rushing yards (1,616) and touchdowns (16) in 2010.
Foster also holds the NFL record for most rushing yards in a player’s first three career playoff games (425) and was the first player in NFL history to rush for more than 100 yards in his first 3 postseason games. He holds the Houston Texans’ franchise records for career rushing yards (6,472), career rushing touchdowns (54), most rushing yards in a single season (1,616), and most rushing touchdowns in a single season (16). Foster was also known for his signature Namaste bow, which he frequently performed after scoring touchdowns
Outside of football, Foster has enjoyed a variety of creative interests. He is a hip-hop artist under the stage name Bobby Feeno and released his first album “Flamingo & Koval” in April 2018. His debut was met with such a positive reaction within the industry that Mass Appeal Records, a label founded by hip-hop legend Nas, signed him to a two-project deal. Foster’s first release under his new label was a five-song EP titled, A Late February, and he is nearing completion of his second full-length album. His venture into the music industry has been documented in the TV series, “Becoming Bobby Feeno.”
Foster also hosts his podcast “Now What? with Arian Foster” where various superstar guests like Snoop Dogg, Reggie Bush, Beto O’Rourke, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson have joined him to have deep, informative conversations about a wide range of topics and issues. Foster also founded and continues to operate the Arian Foster Family Foundation with its mission to provide underserved families and children with access to healthy, nutritious food, financial education, and opportunities to grow and build brighter futures.
