Robbie Walker is currently in his fourth year of high school football with the Nelson Lords of the Halton Secondary School Athletic Association (HSSAA), but it was not until Grade 11 when he started to get noticed as a starter.

His first two years with the Lords brought him virtually no playing time, but after making the senior team he excelled and was named captain last season.

So far in his career, Robbie has played as defensive back and punter/kick return, but this past season he also played a little running back.

Moreover, this upcoming June he will be attending a high school positional camp at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, which he is very excited about.

Robbie has decided to return to Nelson High School for another year, making him a 2017 graduate despite interest from various universities and colleges.

“It would be an honour to make the #CFC 100 and I am working extremely hard, training every day, in order to have an opportunity to do just that,” said Robbie.

During last year’s offseason, he played football for the Burlington Stampeders, while also working out diligently.

Robbie has planned to use this year’s offseason to train with a professional to improve his fitness level, as well as return to the Stampeders.

“My goals at Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) would be to continue to learn more form the incredibly talented coaching staff and tap into that knowledge in order to make myself a more complete player,” commented the Lord.

On the field, Robbie’s role model is Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks because he is a well-educated and articulate player with incredible athletic ability and speed.

The defensive end views Sherman as a model citizen who does an enormous amount of charity work in his community.

In the past the Lord has played a variety of sports, and even though he excelled at hockey and soccer, it was not until he started playing football did he find his passion.

“To me, football has been not only a discipline that I love but a great chance to meet and become friends with many like minded athletes,” added Robbie. “I live and breathe football.”

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
