Walker’s own 6’5 270 lb offensive lineman Cru Birdyshaw who wears number 77 for the Vikings, recently received an offer from Southern Mississippi. The Conference USA Division I Golden Eagles regularly compete against SEC schools such as Alabama, Arkansas, and Mississippi State.
Birdyshaw was a force on the offensive line for the Vikings this past season and is currently working hard with the rest of the team in Spring Training. Coach Brunner and staff are looking forward to continued quality development for Birdyshaw and the rest of the offensive line this spring and summer.
Spring training for our middle school football student athletes began this week on Walker’s practice field.
Today’s (Thursday 4/16) practice for current sixth-graders has been cancelled.
Spring training will resume next week with sixth-grade student athletes traveling to Walker on Monday and Tuesday afternoon.
Seventh-grade student athletes will start their spring training on Monday and go through Thursday with each day ending at 5:30 and concluding Wednesday by 5:00pm.
As we look toward the 2015 football season, several athletes stand out as leaders on the team and playmakers on the field. One of these standouts is upcoming junior Isaiah Cox.
Cox recently attended Junior Day at the University of South Alabama where Joey Jones is head coach. Cox’s performance caught the eye of the coaches at the Division One school where his untapped potential was evident. The camp culminated in a great opportunity for this young player.
Coach Heath Brunner is proud to announce that Isaiah Cox received an official offer to play for the Jaguars and he expects that more offers could come after spring football concludes.
Coaches from across the state have their eyes on our program and our standout players. High intensity practice, good off-season workout habits and a tough schedule of competition will continue to put Cox, and our other stellar athletes, in the public eye and open many opportunities for their futures.
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.
Once a month this spring we will have a Walker Viking Spirit Night!
We invite all our families and fans to dine together at a local restaurant, and the owners will give a portion of the proceeds back to the Vikings.
