Big cleats to fill

MOORE —

“When I was about five I started playing football,” Walker said. “As I got older, I started getting better and better. It kind of weirded me out because I was always the slow fat kid. Then I hit seventh grade and I hit a little growth spurt. Then I turned up with a little bit of speed. Every since then I’ve been able to play football and thought I may be able to go somewhere. So I just try and stay focused.”

Walker said Adams has been there along the way to help him stay focused in a variety of ways.

“He helps me out,” Walker said. “He gives me pointers on a lot of things. He trains me. I do a lot of conditioning and speed drills with him. It helps a lot. We are still real competitive when we get around each other. We watch football and we play games. When he comes to my games, I have to try and prove I am better than he was. You have to show out.”
