I was at that game in Tulsa. Happened right in front of me, I was just a few rows up and not many ppl but my friends around.

I said as soon as it happened, this is farked and that it's serious.  All my friends thought I was joking.

Wish I would have been.

Whar is ironic tag? Whar?

/Don't forget the Saint have been proven guilty of intentionally trying to make more players like Devon Walker.

I have a hard time cheering for someone nearly losing his life playing football, turning it around and becoming highly educated in a difficult field, and then turning around again and jumping right back into the sport at the most dangerous levels.

met this kid a few years ago at a local high school game where he was talking to students. I was both inspired by his story and humbled by his humility, a very very nice well spoken and focused young man. i wish him well in what ever he strives to do.
