SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- The quick and agile wide receiver from Central Valley High (Pa.) takes home MVP honors.

Robert Foster, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound wide receiver from Central Valley High in Monaca, Pa., had a great combine showing.

In the one-on-one part of the competition he showed that he was almost unguardable. He had a scary combination of size and skills that allowed him to completely dominate defensive backs.

He ran crisp underneath routes and also had the ability to get open for the deep ball. Every quarterback was trying to get in line to try and throw him the rock, and even in warm-ups he did not have a dropped ball.

"We have been singing the praises of Foster since early in his sophomore season, as a potential elite level prospect by the end of his sophomore season Foster had achieved that status. He has a tremendous combination of size speed and gamebreaking ability. He could be a top 50, safety or return man, as a return man he is one of the most dangerous in the nation," said National Analyst Bob Lichtenfels.

Foster was happy when he found out he was taking home the honors as the combine MVP.

"It means a lot, man," Foster expressed. "You get a lot of competition, but you got to keep working and do what you got to do and you got to fight. I thank all of this competition and I thank (them) for inviting me."

Now that Foster has proved his worth on the national level he has got to start to focus on closing out his high school career strong and take on the recruiting process.

"I want to feel like I am at home man, I want to feel like I am home, that is the main thing," Foster replied when asked about what the most important factor will be when trying to select from an offer list that includes schools like Penn State, Pittsburgh, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Florida State, North Carolina, West Virginia and a host of others. "I want to feel like I am back at CV (Central Valley)."

As a junior, Foster finished the season with 37 catches for 584 yards and scored 12 touchdowns.
