 CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -Georgia Southern quarterback Jayson Foster won the Walter Payton Award on Thursday night as the top offensive player in the Football Championship Subdivision.
Foster ran for 1,844 yards (7.1 yards per carry) and 24 touchdowns this season, and also completed 109 of 170 passes for 1,203 yards and six touchdowns in leading his team to a 7-4 record.
Foster received 24 first-place votes and 224 points out of 100 ballots cast by a panel of sports information directors and selected media. He finished 40 points ahead of Northern Iowa quarterback Eric Sanders and 58 points ahead of San Diego quarterback Josh Johnson.
The Walter Payton Award, named for the late Jackson State and Chicago Bears running back, was established in 1987 by The Sports Network.
``I feel very honored, very privileged to win the Walter Payton Award,'' Foster said. ``You cannot win an elite award like this without having talented teammates and a great coaching staff.''
Meanwhile, Montana defensive end Kroy Biermann won the Buck Buchanan Award as the top defensive player. Mark Farley of Northern Iowa won the Eddie Robinson Award as the top coach.
The awards were presented on the eve of the Football Championship Subdivision championship game between Appalachian State and Delaware.
