Praying for Tulane Safety Devon Walker!

I don’t care if you’re a fan of the Tulane Green Wave or the school’s staunchest foe, if you’ve got a heart, then say a prayer for Tulane safety Devon Walker, the young player that suffered a broken neck in a horrific-looking tackle this past Saturday that could potentially leave him paralyzed for life.

Walker remained in stable condition Sunday and will soon need surgery to repair the spine fracture he suffered while making a tackle during a game against Tulsa, school officials told reporters.

Tulane University assistant athletic director Roger Dunaway, said Sunday that Walker's parents had arrived at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa on Saturday night.

"We're just hoping and praying for the best for Devon and his family," Dunaway said.
Tulane's team doctor, Greg Stewart, told The New Orleans Times-Picayune in a report published online Sunday that the player had some feeling in his arms and legs and that the possibility of paralysis was still unknown and it may not become clear until midweek.

Once again, it doesn’t matter which college football team you like best. If you’re a football fan in general, or simply a person with a heart, say a prayer for Devon Walker today!
