What can you say about QB Ethan Walker of Asheboro HS, Asheboro NC? At 6’5/200 lbs, you would think coaches would be lining up to see a QB with his pro style skill set. Well the only issue was Ethan’s previous school, Southwestern Randolph HS in Asheboro, ran a run at all times offense. This kept Ethan from being on anyone’s radar and also his lack of camps from his sophomore to junior year left him almost unknown. While Ethan had great numbers, they were small due to the type of offense he was in. That was about to change.
In the 2015 off season, Ethan hooked up with trainer Rodney Beasley of Proehlific Park Sports Performance in Greensboro NC. Rodney also works with Cam Newton and other high profile athletes across the nation, so Ethan was truly in good hands. As the collaboration of Ethan and Rodney began to take shape Ethan started to catch the eyes of a few coaches. Then in early spring 2016 Ethan attended a Blue Grey combine. There Ethan impressed the all former NFL staff. Ethan Walker was then invited to the Blue Grey Super Combine, which took place in Richmond VA in June. There Ethan’s skill set elevated him over all other QBs and really separated him from all other QBs. Ethan’s performance there made him a no questions asked selection for the 2017 Blue Grey All American Game to be played in Jacksonville Florida on January 14, 2017 at 1pm EST. (on ESPN 3)
Watching Ethan’s film, you can see he has a great arm and is very accurate. He reads defenses, makes good decisions, and has a big strong frame. I truly believe the coach that lands Ethan will be getting a true competitor and a student athlete you could build a program around. I was talking with Ethan a while back and he was very up front. He said “I just need a coach to give me a chance and I will take it from there.” He is not cocky. He is confident in his skill set and his ability to apply it to his craft. Let’s look at his 2016 season as Ethan enters the playoffs. 115 of 202 = 57% completion. Ethan threw for 1865 yards and a 16 yard per completion. Ethan threw a TD every 6 passes or 20 on the year and he ran for another 4 TD’s on his own. Ethan’s decision making can be seen in his 3 INT’s. Talking with his coaches they all same the same thing. Ethan is a leader team player and winner. I all most forgot the best part. Ethan Walker carries a 4.48 weighted GPA and scored a 22 on his ACT. At the time of this article Ethan Walker has interest from Gardner Webb, Lenoir Rhyne, UNC Charlotte.
