City of Cordele awards NFL draft prospect key to city
CORDELE, Ga. (WALB) - Saturday was a special day in the city of Cordele as the city honored their hometown native, national champion, and future NFL draft pick with the key to their city.
And to top that off, April 9th is now Quay Walker Day forever and beyond.
There were over 30 people in attendance to witness this historic day.
Walker had family, friends, city leaders, coaches and fans there to support him.
Walker was a 5-star recruit coming out of Crisp County High School and he got the chance to stay in-state and won a national championship with the University of Georgia.
Walker has so many accolades throughout his football journey but this kind of recognition is something he will remember for the rest of his life.
“This is just a blessing to do so. This is everything I wanted, everything and more just to be in this position. I take full pride in it not only to represent myself but Cordele as well,” Walker said.
Right now, Walker said he doesn’t have a preference for which team he’ll soon become a part of.
“At this point, it ain’t my decision but I’d probably like the cowboys. But at the end of the day, it ain’t my decision,” he said.
Don’t worry Falcons fans, Quay said he wouldn’t mind playing in his home state, he’s just excited that his dreams are coming true.
