Nate Walker concluded an impressive career at Cross High School in the fall of 2017 and is headed to Wofford College to play football upon graduation.
Walker led the Trojans last season with over 1,400 yards and 17 touchdowns rushing and 94 tackles on defense to reel in all-state, Shrine Bowl and all-Berkeley County honors. As a junior, Walker topped 1,200 yards and 80 tackles, catching the eye of college coaches.
Walker started three years for Coach Shaun Wright and the Trojans and was a catalyst on both sides of the line of scrimmage.
“You’re not going to replace him with one person,” Wright said. “We’re going to have to find three or four guys to pick up where Nate left off. He’s one of those special athletes that come around just so often. We’ll miss him.”
Walker became the first Shrine Bowl pick from Cross since 1999 and represented his community at a high level. He earned the South Carolina squad’s defensive MVP honors despite being just one of three Class A players on the roster.
Walker made nine stops for the South Carolina squad.
