September 24, 2013St. Paul Central's Dailen Walker is a 6-1, 300lb, NG who also plays Fullback. Central is 4-0 for the season and Walker gives MinnesotaPreps his view from the line. Central has wins over Southwest 66-18, Columbia Heights 39-12, Harding 41-0 and a huge win over Minneapolis Washburn 47-25 in their last game. The Minutemen handed the Millers their first loss of the season in this battle of crosstown rivals. Every time Minneapolis plays St. Paul, bragging rights are up for grabs. Walker performed very well in the Central vs. Washburn contest. "My best game has to be against Washburn. I did everything right, played my gaps, pursued even on offense, and played fullback to open a lot of holes for touchdowns," he noted. He is proud of the work of both lines for Central. "Our offensive line is very big but they have hearts of lions, the d-line we average around 260 and we have the strength and speed. We definitely have a chance to go undefeated. We have two goals: to win our conference, and to win a state championship," he responded when asked about the strength of Central's lines, and their chances of going undefeated this season. Highland Park has a 3-1 record and could challenge Central when they meet late in the season. "Highland looks pretty good, but we have to take one game at a time and play our game. For highland it will be a very emotional game as we fight for the Musket, and it will be our seniors' last home coming as minuteman. Humboldt is next on the schedule for Central. "But for right now we have to focus on Humboldt? they won't lay down for no one. Our team knows we have an X on our back so we have to give it our all every play," Walker said talking about their next game against Humboldt. Walker has a solid GPA that is close to a 3.0 and reaching that B average is an academic goal for him. He attended MTSU's camp last summer. "It went great they made me feel very at home and their facilities are great." Walker is another of the many talented big men holding down the lines in Minnesota. It will be interesting to see if his dreams of a conference and State championship will be realized. It won't be for a lack of effort for him and his comrades on the lines.
