Name: Roger Walker
Position: Running Back
Q: What were some of your goals heading into your final collegiate season?
Some of my goals were to do what I could do to have a winning record. Be the best player that I could be. Also to become an All-American again.
Q: If you could describe your style of play in 3 words, what would they be?
Hard nose runner.
Q: How will you train and prepare this offseason for the draft or other pro opportunities?
Due to the lack of funds and not having an agent. I have had help from a couple of trainers and their online programs. Also, my trainer back at home has helped me over Christmas break.
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on or look for?
I focus on how the defense lines up. How the Linebackers and Defensive Line play, their favorite moves, how the shed blocks, and play the cut.
Q: What separates you from the other players at your position?
I am always willing to get better and I watch film a lot to prepare for the game. I always go hard even in practice because I treat it like a game. I even go to the gym after practice or days we have off to get better for advance weeks. I am a versatile back. I can line up in the slot and catch out of the backfield.
My character on and off the field. My skills on the field. I’m always giving back to the community. I am a team player, not a me player. I could care less if I score, as long as we win I’m totally fine. I love winning, but I know it comes with hard work and preparation, especially for the professional level.
Q: What is your final pitch or sell to NFL and other pro league scouts?
I believe with my skill level and my hard work on and off the field, I am a great pick up. Also, my accolades show as well that I work hard. You won’t be upset with your choice. I just need a chance to show myself. I know I went to a small school, but football is football and I believe that my skills and my body can still play the game of football at the professional level. I will continue to better myself and get stronger and faster just for when that time comes and my name is called, I’ll be ready.
