Xavion Walker wants to win a state championship with the Killeen Kangaroos in 2019. He’s taking advantage of his opportunities on the recruiting trail as well.
His love for football came when he started playing in the Texas Youth Football Association for the Killeen Cowboys as a fifth grader. The moment he realized that he had a special talent in football was when he threw a 35-yard touchdown on the run for the Cowboys.
What motivates him to play the game is making it to the NFL one day.
“The hardest thing I’ve ever had to overcome was my emotions during a game. When I was young, I used to get emotionally down if we were losing a game,” Walker Said.
The 6’2, 170 pound, quarterback and Killeen, Texas native currently has no scholarship offers heading into his junior season but has been busy this month. He competed at camps for the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks and Baylor Bears last week. He has two more coming up with TCU and the University of Texas-San Antonio on June 21 and 25 respectively. Check out his sophomore spring game highlights.
Xavion Walker plays football, basketball and likes to cook. Outside of football, he sees himself becoming a chef.
Looking at Xavion Walker on film, he has a good pocket presence and gets the ball out of his hands quickly. He runs the football well as a quarterback and shows good accuracy and arm strength on his throws. While he believes his best asset is his ability to throw the football, he admitted that he does need to work on trusting his lineman and staying in the pocket as long as possible.
“What I enjoy most about playing quarterback is the fact that everyone relies on you. I am willing to take on that responsibility. I love to be one of the biggest parts of a team.”
Xavion Walker hopes to make his commitment decision at the end of his junior season. Even though he is a year away from graduation, he knows how he wants to remember his time with the Killeen Kangaroos.
“I think what I will miss the most is Friday nights playing with my teammates and I plan to remember that by taking photos so that I can have them in the future.”
