GUTHRIE — It didn't take but the first quarter of the first game to realize Guthrie senior wide receiver Donte' Foster wasn't content with one Class 5A state football championship.

Against Bishop McGuinness, Guthrie quarterback Keaton Callins lofted a pass that nobody thought would be caught. Foster stuck out his right hand and brought the ball in as he fell on his back.

“That was amazing. I thought maybe he could get it, but that's what makes him so good,” Callins said.

Catches like that are one reason why Foster has been selected to The Oklahoman's All-State Team.

Foster was one of the state's leading receivers with 51 catches for 938 yards and 14 touchdowns. He only had two rushing attempts — and those both went for touchdowns. He added two interceptions on defense.

While those stats are impressive, it's no guarantee Foster will end up playing football next year. A star in both basketball and the high jump, Foster's athletic future remains unclear.

One thing for sure is Foster is a winner. He's already won a state championship in football, basketball and track and field. And with two sports left this year, he might be bringing home more hardware.
