We here at Gridiron Football are proud to announce our newest Diamond In The Rough in Damon Walker. Damon Walker is a class of 2022 defensive tackle out of Lewisville High School in Lewisville, Texas. He is 5’9” and weighs 285 pounds. He is an excellent run stopper with a strong lower body. He also uses hands well and has a wide body with the ability to clog running lanes. I like his pad height and how he tracks the ball. Walker has a 3.1 GPA.
