Arian Foster      

NFL Running Back; Known for his Signature Namaste Bow

Arian Foster of the Houston Texans broke into the NFL’s elite class of running backs in 2010 by leading the league in rushing (1616 yards), yards from scrimmage (2,220) and touchdowns (18). Arian played college football at the University of Tennessee and was signed as an undrafted free agent to the Texans in 2009. While playing on the practice squad for part of the 2009 season, Foster’s determination, grit and passion earned him a spot on the active roster in late November 2009. His record setting performance in the 2010 season has made him a favorite among Texans supporters and football fans everywhere. He was awarded an ESPY for “NFL Strongest Performance” for his 231 yard, 3-touchdown 2010 opening day performance against the Colts.

But Arian is more than just a talented running back. He is an entrepreneur, husband, father, poet, writer, actor and thinker. The Sporting News called Foster, “The most interesting man in the NFL,” and CBS This Morning called him “The NFL’s Renaissance Man.”

In 2013, Arian showcased his talents on the silver screen appearing on CBS’s hit show, "Hawaii Five-0." He was also tapped by legendary director Ivan Reitman for a feature role in the movie "Draft Day" alongside Kevin Costner. As part of his fight against childhood obesity and promotion of healthy nutrition, Arian’s entrepreneurial spirit led him to a financial partnership with Health Warrior.

When not at practice or working on his business endeavors, Arian can be found working out with his personal trainer and brother, Abdul, spending time with his wife, Romina and daughter Zeniah, trying to straighten out his 300+ yard drives or volunteering with one of the many charities he supports including The Boys and Girls Clubs and A Crucial Catch, a program of the American Cancer Society dedicated to early detection of breast cancer.
