Championships are earned in the off season and the Walker Viking Football team is working hard each day in preparation for the upcoming season.

Everyday the players who are not participating in a spring sport have been putting in the work in the weight room with conditioning drills and lifting to prepare their bodies for the upcoming season.

The guys are enjoying the rewards that come with their hard work.  Come out on Tuesday night and support the team as they lift weights in Songer Gym for the Lift-a-thon. imageimage

Game Day! Playoffs Begin Tonight @ Ki-Ro Gambrell Field

Prep football preview: Walker-Decatur features top defenses

  • 07 Nov 2014

  • Published in Sports  Daily Mountain Eagle

Alex Medina, Sawyer Smith, Isiah Cox — Walker has its share of defensive stars.

The Vikings have relied on them all this season.

That will again be the case today when Walker hosts Decatur in a Class 6A first-round playoff game at Ki-Ro Gambrell Field.

The game matches two of the top defenses in the classification. Both Decatur and Walker are tied for 8th in scoring defense in Class 6A. Each team has allowed 156 points on the year.

Walker (6-4) hasn’t given up more than 28 points in a game this season. In its last five games, Walker has allowed just 17.8 points per game.

Medina leads Walker’s defense with 131 tackles while Sawyer Smith had 107. Cox has 46 stops and three interceptions while John Michael Reed has 47 tackles and two interceptions.

Despite playing just eight games, Garrett Davenport has 63 tackles and has also recorded a safety.

Walker’s problem has been on other side of the ball. The Vikings average 25.7 points per game, but  they got the bulk of their points in routs of John Carroll (64 points) and Madison County (52).

Like Walker, Decatur is built around its defense. The Red Raiders have scored over 28 points just once this season.

Decatur is especially tough in close games.

The Red Raiders have played in five games decided by seven points or less this season, going 4-1.

Walker is 2-4 in games decided by seven points or less.

The Red Raiders are no stranger to the playoffs, making the postseason each of the last eight years. Despite the streak, success hasn’t been as easy. Decatur has lost in the first round of the playoffs each of the last four seasons.
