About the Book

If there's anyone who could say,"I didn't sign up for this," it's Texas A&M quarterback David Walker. This is the incredible story of Walker's demanding, provocative, bitterly fought career, and the most miraculous comeback of all time. Now the hardest-fighting Fightin' Texas Aggie who ever lived reveals his life as the A&M Field General inside the cold-blooded arena of college football. Join fans now in discovering the most disturbingly fascinating career in NCAA history with the youngster who lived it, including unique stories of a superb high school coach and the all-time game-changers for Aggie football, the Wishbone Gang! Walker is the only college-level quarterback to ever publish a book based on his experiences in amateur athletics, and remains the youngest starting college quarterback ever. He held the single-season passing record at Sulphur High for 40 years and the single-game QB rushing record at Texas A&M for 35 years; a true dual-threat quarterback. Enjoy the flavor of Southwest Louisiana and the adopted Texas swagger in his unique voice as he takes you down a one-of-a-kind path you could never imagine possible in the modern era of college football. In so doing you will uncover what may be the best amateur sports story of all time — how David Walker met the greatest challenge in NCAA history.

About the Author

Perhaps the ultimate 'gamer' in college sports history, David is the original four-year starting quarterback for Texas A&M University, becoming the first true freshman to play the position there since World War II when he was only 17. He is a former algebra teacher, high school football coach, father of two (one an A&M grad) and author of an extraordinary portrayal of amateur athletics narrated in his new book, "I'll Tell You When You're Good!" Nicknamed "Moon Walker" by his Sulphur High teammates, David at 16 years of age was voted Louisiana's large-school classification's 1st-team All-State Quarterback and the Outstanding Offensive Player in the state. His book provides a genuine look at the transition from high school to major college and the contrasts of his coaches, Sulphur's legendary Louisiana Hall of Famer, Shannon Suarez, and the father of the Wishbone, Emory Bellard. According to its many reviews, "I'll Tell You When You're Good!" is the one book any sports fan just can't put down.
