This past season, he won the Doak Walker Award, given to the nation's top running back, before getting selected by his hometown Houston Texans in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
Now as Foreman prepares for his upcoming NFL training camp, Texas City decided to have a day dedicated to the hometown star.
"D'Onta, the City of Texas City is so proud Weston Richburg Jersey of your accomplishments," the proclamation read. "Congratulations on your draft with the Houston Texans! We wish you much success with all your future goals."
