Central Mountain’s, Penn State’s underdog to topdog Von Walker out for season
Central Mountain graduate Von Walker is out for the season, according to the weekly game notes re-leased Mon–day by the school.
This also ends his playing career, after he arrived as a walk-on in 2013 to earn immediate playing time before a scholarship and leadership role.
Walker, a reserve linebacker and special teams mainstay, as was injured Saturday at Rutgers. It looked like a left knee injury when he went down on punt coverage late in the first half.
He will not play for just the third time in his ca-reer and the first time since the Indiana game in 2014, ending a streak of 28 consecutive games played. His seven special teams tackles this year are second on the team.
Walker is one of eight two-time captains in school history. He’s scheduled to be one of 17 seniors honored prior to Saturday’s game.
