Newton’s Caiden Walker Offered By Stephen F. Austin
The sixth Division I scholarship offer arrived Saturday for Newton 2019 offensive lineman Caiden Walker.
The Eagles' lineman reported via Twitter that Stephen F. Austin has offered.
Walker (6-3, 285) has FBS offers from Louisiana Tech, Louisiana-Monroe, Tulane, and UTEP, and an additional FCS opportunity from McNeese State.
Newton has five players with FBS offers. In addition to Walker, 2019 RB Darwin Barlow, 2019 ATH Tamauzia Brown, 2019 QB/ATH Josh Foster, and 2020 DE James Sylvester currently have FBS opportunities.
Last season, Walker anchored an offensive line that helped Newton finish 15-0 and as the Class 3A Division II state champions.
SFA is an FCS school that competes in the Southland Conference. The Lumberjacks are coached by Clint Conque and finished last season with an overall record of 4-7 (4-5 in conference).
Walker, like all juniors, can sign with any team that offers him beginning in December.
