    Surely it would have to be Jason Foster.

    A short Jason Foster Bio while at GSU taken from Wiki.

    "Foster was named ‘Freshman of the Year’ by the Southern Conference head coaches. He played in all 12 games starting three times at wide receiver. He was the only Eagle to ever score a touchdown five different ways: rushing, passing, receiving, punt return and kickoff return.

    During his Sophomore year, as starting quarterback, Foster set a conference record rushing for a touchdown in all 12 games, the only player in I-AA to accomplish that feat. He rushed for 1,481 yards which was the third-most rushing yards by a quarterback in NCAA I-FCS history. He led the Eagle offense to its fifth straight I-FCS rushing title, averaging 387 yards on the ground and the team ranked sixth nationally in scoring offense (38 ppg) and eighth in passing efficiency and total offense. Individually, he ranked 10th in rushing (123.4 ypg), 55th in total offense, third in scoring (126 points) and 34th in all-purpose yards.

    During his Junior year, former Coach *(Brian VanGorder switched Foster from quarterback to wide receiver.)* Nevertheless, Foster was named First Team All-SoCon (wide receiver by the coaches, return specialist by the media association)and Second Team All-SoCon (return specialist as voted by the coaches). He became the only player in school history with at least an 80-yard rush, reception, punt return and kickoff return.

    **During his senior year, Foster retook the helm at quarterback and led his Eagles to a 7-4 mark and captured the 2007 Walter Payton Award. He was also named the Southern Conference Offensive Player of the Year. Foster compiled a school record *3,047 yards of total offense, breaking that of College Football Hall of Famer * Tracy Ham. Foster also ranked second nationally in rushing yards per game (167.6)."

    It's to bad that we hired VanGorder. It set Foster's QB stats back using a different offensive scheme.

    Although Fosters sophomore & senior years showed that he was a stand out among GSU QBs does he have the stats to retire his #4 ?

    Foster’s number not being retired is criminal.
    Too many Urkels on your team that's why your wins low

    No playoff wins. Much less a NC

    Great individual stats but compared to #8 and #3.......

    Two more years of Sewak might've gotten Foster's jersey retired but that didn't happen. If you retire #4, then you have to take a hard look at #10. Either way it's a moot point. Either a clickbait twatter post or was really about Tookie.

    Two more years of Sewak might have moved Jayson to WR or RB because we would have gotten Armanti Edwards.

    As an individual honor, I'm not sure that playoff wins or NC's should be weighed so heavily. The Payton Award and the record for total offense are the biggest points in favor, but he suffers from the travesty of his colossal misuse under BVG from a career standpoint.

    As far as we're aware, he's also still the only player in NCAA history to score 5 different ways from 80+.
