The reaction from his teammates is incredibly genuine and it doesn't look like Walker was expecting it, nor was his mom after he called her.

Walker has been a significant contributor to Penn State's on-field efforts in his two years in State College.

He started against Northwestern and had 12 tackles in 12 games.
