He is the top returner when it comes to receptions (32), yards (411), and Touchdowns (4). He'll need to replace the production Toler Presley and Nick Brown left him, the top two WRs from 2012.
He also doesn't have Parker Adamson throwing him the ball either, so he needs to give incoming Sophomore QB Jack Abraham some confidence to this season. Abraham has talent, probably as smart and scaringly more accurate than when Guy Cameron Billups came through the system. Walden needs to make sure Abraham has someone to rely on.
Much like Presley had to do last year, he will have to lead his WR corp to do the hard work if they want to be successful on offense.
He has one other Senior WR coming back in Glenn Gordon. Those two have to be the 1-2 combo threat with Gordon's speed and Walden's sure hands if they want to keep the defense off balance this season along with some help from the underclassmen.
Coming into this year, Walden has participated in Football and what seems like a pre-requisite now in Powerlifting. He is also part of the Track team this past year as a Sprinter. Expect him to have a big year in Football and to help out the defending 5A Champion Powerlifters in going back-to-back.
