The Man Beneath The Helmet – Casey Walker
Every year we learn their names, their numbers and their stats. If we’re lucky, we see their personality shine through after a big play or during the slice of a quote in the newspaper. The men in the Oklahoma Sooners jerseys are more than a number in a program or another chance at a national title. They are student athletes with stories waiting to be told. We’d like to thank OU Athletics Communications staff for their assistance. The Oklahoman brings you “The Man Beneath The Helmet.”
NAME: Casey Walker
If I weren’t playing football, I’d be in Dallas at a Junior College.
If I could trade positions for a day, I’d choose running back.
My favorite part of OU is Campus Corner.
My favorite part of football is playing Texas.
The weirdest question I’ve ever been asked is “despite what you heard I’ve never …”.
I chose my number because when I was younger, I always had 53. My grandpa had a tumor but the number always stuck with him. I kept it for him.
I’m on Twitter once an hour.
My favorite meal my momma makes is fried chicken with mashed potatoes.
I chose OU to win a national title.
Most people don’t know this but I cut hair.
The toughest part about being a student athlete is balancing school and football.
I wish I could be faster.
My best stress reliever is sleep.
On game day, I listen to rap.
Something you should know about this team is that five guys are married on the team.
My favorite super hero is Superman.
Nothing pumps me up more on Game Day than music.
My celebrity crush is Alicia Keys.
The person who motivates me most is my family.
Oklahoma football is exciting.
