Foster, who now plays for the Pittsburgh Maulers, was named the Defensive Player of the Week in the USFL on Monday.

During the Maulers’ 21-13 win over the Philadelphia Stars, Foster recorded 11 tackles, two tackles for loss, two defended passes and an impressive diving interception.

Now three games into the season, Foster ranks third in the league in tackles with 26 and is tied for the lead in interceptions.
