Arian Foster (born August 24, 1986) is an American football running back for the Houston Texans. He was signed by the Texans as an undrafted free agent in 2009 and was added to their active roster from the practice squad on November 17, 2009. He played college football at Tennessee. Foster is known for his signature bow when he scores a touchdown.

Foster was born on 24 August 1986 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Carl Foster, a former wide receiver for the University of New Mexico, and Bernadette Sizemore, an administrative assistant for the university. Foster competed in football at Valley High School, where coaches told him that he was not good enough to play running back. His parents divorced in 2000, and in 2002 he moved to San Diego, California, to be with his father. Foster competed in football at Mission Bay Senior High School, where he was initially misplaced as a linebacker, but became a full-time running back in his senior year. He was Mission Bay's featured running back that year, and led San Diego County in all purpose yards with 2,500. Then-Tennessee offensive coordinator Randy Sanders and running backs coach Trooper Taylor were impressed by Foster when recruiting in San Diego. Foster chose to attend Tennessee and was part of the 2004 signing class.

Foster red-shirted his first season as a University of Tennessee Volunteer, sitting behind Gerald Riggs, Jr. and Cedric Houston on the depth chart. He was a three-year starter at the running back position for Tennessee.
