For the first 11 years of his life, legendary football rusher Herschel Walker was more concerned about reading books and writing poetry than he was about breaking tackles and scoring touchdowns, but when he got his nose out of his books and put his feet in the backfield, there was no stopping him.
In his hometown of Wrightsville, Georgia, Walker played football and basketball and competed in track and field. He scored a record-breaking 85 touchdowns and led the football and track teams to state championships. Meanwhile, he maintained an A average, was valedictorian and became the nation's most sought-after player.
At the University of Georgia, Walker set an NCAA freshman rushing record, earned consensus All-American honors for three consecutive years and set 10 NCAA records. In 1982, he won the coveted Heisman Trophy as a junior. He left school in 1983 to join the New Jersey Generals in the short-lived United States Football League and was the league's Most Valuable Player.
In 1986, he entered the NFL playing for the Dallas Cowboys. He led the league in rushing and became an All-Pro. He then played for the Minnesota Vikings, the Philadelphia Eagles and then rejoined the Dallas Cowboys in 1996. He retired from the NFL in 1997.
His philosophy, "Run the race against yourself and not the guy in the other lane," is inspiring to people everywhere. Herschel is a moving speaker and enjoys the opportunity to share his message with audiences everywhere.
