Walk on of the Week: Chase Walker

Noledigest.com's Walk on of the Week series continues with redshirt sophomore Chase Walker. Chase talks about his experience so far walking on to an elite program.

It seems like only yesterday that Chase Walker decided to walk on. With three years under his belt, Walker has experienced different types of coaching while at Florida State. "This year's practice is definitely high intensity on the offensive side. Everyone is improving a lot more and as a team." Walker said. Chase is also a big fan of his new position coach. "He's a great coach overall. He can relate to us more since he's played here and had success. Everyone is improving under him. He teaches us about life and just sets a good example. Just the way he carries himself sets a good example." With this past recruiting class Florida State picked up four stud receivers. "Brandon, Cam, Taiwan, and Bert are all looking real good so far out here." Walker says about the new freshmen.

A lot of people would say why bother even walking on? You put in arguably more work than the scholarship players with out any rewards. Walker talks about his reason. "It's tough. It's one of the top programs in the country as far as talent. Coming in you are taking the tougher road but, I've been trying to improve every year and work myself into the rotations .I always wanted to play for a major football program and I always loved FSU. I got a lot of D-1AA offers like Jacksonville State University and some military academies." Along with the high demands of being a walk on Walker still have to face some of the top corner backs in the ACC such as Tony Carter. "The toughest would have to be Pat Robinson and of course Tony Carter (smiles and laughs) none of them are too tough." Walker said. Many ‘Nole fans are wondering what to expect out of the talented group of receivers. Chase makes it clear for Seminole nation ""A lot of good things. Everyone has improved a lot over the off season. Expect great things."
