Arizona Running Back Tops 500 Yards

by Jeff Fisher
High School Football America

Saguaro (Arizona) running back D.J. Foster became the first Arizona ball carrier to ever rush for more than 500 yards in a game.

Foster needed only 20 careers for his 508 yards in Saguaro's 81-48 win over Sunrise Mountain in the opening round of the Arizona Division III playoffs.  He scored 10 touchdowns, three of them were through the air.

The previous single-game rushing record was 477 yards set by Ozzie Anaya of Valley Union in 1985.  Foster's ten touchdowns ties the state record held by Vincent Alvarado of Seligman in 2004.

Foster, who is a top-rated recruit, now has 51 TDs on the season, which ties him for the state record held by Nathan Wize of Sabino in 1977.
