Tulane’s Devon Walker honored with Disney award

Former Tulane football player Devon Walker was honored by Disney with their 2013 Disney Spirit Award on Thursday night.

Every year, Disney Sports gives the awards to the most inspirational figures in college football.

The organization cites Walker’s courage after severely injuring his spinal cord during game two of the 2012 season. The former safety was left paralyzed from the neck down.

This fall, Walker returned to class and to the sideline where he provides support to his teammates.
