Who Says Dreams Don’t Come True?
On May 17th, 2014, Devon Walker was signed with the New Orleans Saints. Devon was paralyzed in a helmet to helmet hit when he was playing as a Safety for Tulane University in 2012. Head Coach, Sean Payton made this statement in regards to Devon..
“Despite the devastating injury he suffered, Devon refuses to let that define him. He is an outstanding young man, who is not only an inspiration to his coaches and teammates at Tulane, but to all of us. Devon’s character, determination, intelligence and work ethic are everything that we look for in a New Orleans Saint when we sign a player. This is the least we can do to recognize Devon and these attributes that we want all of our players to have.”
As we approach the Memorial Day Weekend, we salute our military, family and friends that are inspirations to us all!
