Today the New Orleans Saints helped another kid’s dream come true. The team signed Devon Walker to a contract.
A four-year letterman at Tulane, Walker played for the Green Wave from 2009-12. He joined the team as a walk-on in 2009 and had moved into the starting lineup and was named a team captain as a senior in 2012. Opening the second game of his senior campaign on Sept. 8 at Tulsa, Walker suffered a career-ending spinal injury when he collided with a teammate while attempting to make a tackle just seconds before halftime.
Walker injured his C3 and C4 vertebrae, which left him paralyzed from the neck down and spent over three months in the hospital before returning home in December 2012.
This is an amazing story, I love what Sean Payton and crew did. Amazing job!!!
