Arian Foster's stunning 2010 NFL season continued Wednesday night with an ESPY Award.
Foster, a former University of Tennessee running back, won the NFL Strongest Performance Award over two other nominees, Leon Washington of Seattle and DeAngelo Hall of Kansas City.
Foster was cited for his 231-yard, three-touchdown game for the Houston Texans against Indianapolis on opening day of the 2010 season.
Foster went on to lead the NFL in rushing with 1,616 yards.
An undrafted free-agent signee with the Texans after his 2008 senior season at Tennessee, Foster made Houston's roster in 2009 and played in six games. Then he exploded in 2010.
Foster was nominated for two other ESPYs but did not win. Blake Griffin of the NBA Los Angeles Clippers won the award for Best Breakthrough Player. Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers won as the NFL's Best Player.
The ESPY Awards are presented by ESPN to recognize outstanding achievements in the sports year.
