Feaster won the 4A 100 meters and his second straight state title a month ago with a blistering time of 10.42 seconds. It was the second fastest time in the nation this year. The state record in the 100M is held by Dorman's Marcus Rowland in 2008. He also won the 4A 200 meters with a new state record of 21.11. The previous state record was 21.16 back in 2012.

As a junior on the gridiron, Feaster had 133 carries for 1153 yards and fifteen touchdowns and 45 receptions for 1016 yds and eleven touchdowns despite having an injured shoulder for most of the year. In the 2014 state title game, he rushed for 130 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries. He also had five receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown and a 44 yard interception return. He was the state champion in the 100 meter dash (10.59) and 200 (21.29). As a sophomore, he had 171 carries for 1429 yards and 15 touchdowns on the ground and 44 receptions for 723 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Here are two videos from him winning that state title in the 100 and 200 meters back on May 16th.
