Former UL Star Tracy Walker Has Big Game For Lions
A former member of the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns got his 2019 NFL season off to a nice start on Sunday.
Former Louisiana defensive back Tracy Walker, currently a member of the Detroit Lions, came away with a leaping interception, early in the first quarter of a game that ended in a 27-27 tie with the Arizona Cardinals.
Walker also led the Lions in tackles, with 9, including one for a loss.
Last season, Walker, who played for the Cajuns from 2014-2017, had a solid rookie campaign for Detroit, after being selected by the Lions in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, compiling 21 tackles, to go along with an interception and two passes defended.
A native of Brunswick, Georgia, Walker compiled 97 tackles and two interceptions in 2017 as a senior at UL and finished his stellar collegiate career with 276 tackles and 8 interceptions over 50 games.
