Freshman running back D.J. Foster didn't take long to make an impact at Arizona State and has quickly become one of the Sun Devils top offensive weapons.

He leads the team in rushing yards and is second in receptions, but in a Q & A with SB Nation's ASU blog House of Sparky, Foster said he still has a long way to go.

I think I still have a lot more to improve upon to become an overall better player. A lot of stuff people don't see during practice that I work on. As an overall player, I have a lot more I have to improve upon.

Foster said the step up from high school has been a big challenge, but he's enjoying the process and excited for the opportunity to be a big part of ASU's offense. The Sun Devils use Foster at both running back and wide receiver, giving him plenty of opportunities to showcase his talent.

In addition to being a playmaker, Foster has also started to grow into a leader on the team. He said he tries to work hard and lead by example rather than taking on a vocal role. As for the rest of the season, Foster said the team is focused on winning and knows they still have a shot to win the Pac-12 South.

We know we're getting close to the last stretch of the season. We gotta win. We're still competing. We still have an opportunity to compete for the South. We just have to come out to win this game.
