Feature on CB Lewis Walker

About how The Parade of Champions (which celebrated UH’s 2008 Sugar Bowl appearance) was held during his recruiting visit in January 2008, Lewis Walker said:
“It was the day after I got here. It was crazy seeing everyone. It almost seemed like the whole island was there. The atmosphere was crazy.” (HA)

HA Note: “That night, Walker made a verbal commitment to accept a UH scholarship.”

About living in California before moving to Utah at the end of his freshman year, Walker said:
“I wanted to go to a school out of state to see what kind of man I was going to be. Being away from your family and close friends, you can find your true self.” (HA)

HA Note: “Walker, who redshirted last season, was the No. 1 right cornerback yesterday, filling in for Jeramy Bryant, who had to take a test. Walker is developing into a capable technician and cover defender.”

About taking Walker to the North Shore to jump off La’ie Point, Paipai Falemalu said:
“He did a really good job. He wasn’t scared at all.” (HA)

About jumping off La’ie Point, Walker said:
“Looking down from there, you can see the rocks. But it’s not that shallow. You have to gather yourself before you jump, wait for the waves to come in and give you a little more cushion. I did a little twist flip. It was pretty fun.” (HA)
