Or maybe Courtney Taylor, Alabama basketball player. Or maybe Courtney Walker, basketball player for somebody. "I thought I was a basketball player," explained the Auburn senior wide receiver. "That's my favorite sport ... basketball. So, when Auburn offered me a chance to play football, I said, 'Are you serious? Me play college football?'" And, then there was the matter of where he would play. His hometown, Carrollton, is little more than 30 miles west of Tuscaloosa. "I didn't really grow up an Alabama fan," he recalled.

The first time that we visited Auburn, we all fell in love with it ... my dad, my mom, all of us. You could tell that the coaches genuinely wanted me at Auburn. I felt privileged to just have a chance to attend this school and play football here." So, that takes care of the sport ... and the school. But, Courtney Walker? "My last name should really be Walker," he said. ... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
