2011 Big School Defensive Player of the Year – Robert Foster, Central Valley
Written by: WesternPAFootball Staff on Monday, January 2nd, 2012
Foster might be being recruited as a wide receiver at the next level, but it was his play in all phases of the game that stood out. He generates attention as a big-play threat on offense, but defensively, Foster was also equally as good.
He finished the season with 57 tackles (37 solo), four interceptions (returned for a total of 153 yards), three deflected passes and a forced fumble, but he also averaged 39.2 yards per punt, 43.7 yards per kickoff (with one touchback), 46 yards per punt return and 35.8 yards per kickoff return.
He scored four of his 11 touchdowns on the season on defense and special teams, and also had a few touchdowns called back due to penalties in those phases of the game throughout the course of the season.
Foster is a Division-1 prospect in the 2013 recruiting class, and already holds an offer from Pitt and is generating interest from several other programs.
