In terms of guidance with the future in mind, specifically speaking pursuing dreams of playing football and continuing his education, it’s safe to say that Jordan Walker from Silverado (NV) has benefited from being around some bright minds in the not so distant past.
Accordingly, the 6-foot-1 and 220-pound senior linebacker recently took a step in the right direction. With mentors and NFL veterans Randall Cunningham and Mark McMillian on hand, no less, Walker was recognized during the Blue-Grey Jersey Presentation Tour.
The acknowledgement was in advance the brand’s All-American Bowl on Dec. 22 at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium. Once there, he will line up for the West vs. East and be surrounded by more than a few of the country’s premier prospects from the Class of 2017.
Also worth mentioning, two other games take place thereafter: Blue vs. Grey on Jan. 14 at Jacksonville Jaguars’ EverBank Field and Pacific vs. Atlantic on Jan. 21 at Oakland Raiders’ Coliseum. The action will be nationally televised on ESPN3 or the Impact Football Network.
“I’ve known about Jordan for a couple years now and it’s not only been nice to watch his journey, but also, to be a part of it all, the process. I expect some big things from him down the road,” said McMillian, undefeated and three-time winning coach at the All-American Bowl.
Walker first emerged on the radar two years ago at the brand’s All-American Combine (Hawaii Regional) and surfaced again during March’s All-American Combine (Las Vegas Regional). College coaches and scouts have kept close tabs on him ever since. Rightfully so.
With multiple scholarships on the table, namely from Air Force, Army, Colorado State, Hawaii, Idaho and UNLV, Walker appears destined for success. Can’t forget to mention that schools from the Pac-12 Conference and Mountain West Conference are interested as well.
“Blue-Grey Football is a great program, doing great work in the community. As for Jordan, that’s a great kid. Best thing is, before heading off to college and the next chapter in life, he’ll play in the All-American Bowl. Really, what more can you ask for?” Cunningham said.
