Blue Devils Off to Good Start Behind Chris Walker

Bonifay, FL---One of this area's teams to watch is the Blue Devils of Holmes, which touts one of the nation's top players in Chris Walker. He's the 6-9 post player who's already committed to Florida.

Those Blue Devils off to a 3-1 start, the only loss for the 1-A squad, a loss at 4-A Marianna, so they're 3-oh against teams their own size. Walker's off to a good start and that's spurring the team's success.

"We take our offense through him," says head coach Poe White "we often go through Chris Walker. He has a good supporting this year, Junior Miles, Ty Russ, we got a young sophomore coming along, Cason Moore. We depend a lot on Chris Walker. Whatever Chris Walker, if he plays hard, the rest of the guys play yard."

Walker took advantage of the early signing period, so he's already inked his scholarship offer with the Gators. That's allowing him to focus strictly on school and hoops. Ted Williams with go more in depth with Walker later this week, watch for that.
