Express sign PAFL Offensive Lineman of the Year OL-Brent Walker

The Erie Express are happy to announce the addition of OL-Brent Walker (New Mexico Highlands University) for the 2020 season. Brent begins his first season with the Express and is a projected starter on the offensive line. 

Walker graduated from Norco High School in California. While there he was ranked by Scout.com as the No. 44 offensive guard prospect in the nation...rated as the No. 6 senior offensive guard in the state of California and earned First-Team All-Southern California honors by GoldenStatePreps.com Brent was also listed by ESPN as the No. 89 offensive tackle prospect in the country...rated as the No. 76 overall prospect in the state of California by Rivals.com and helped pave the way for running back Deantre Lewis and fullback Carl Bradford to contribute toward Norco's over 4,000 rushing yards in 2009.

Brent verbally committed to Arizona State University over Miami (Fla.) and UCLA,. Walker also had scholarship offers from Colorado State, New Mexico State, San Diego State, Utah and Wyoming. 

Brent ultimately ended up attending Arizona Western Community College before finishing his college career at New Mexico Highlands University. 

Walker has played the past two seasons for the Canton Pitbulls of the PAFL and was named Offensive Lineman of the Year in 2018. The PAFL has shut down operations thus we have the opportunity to acquire Brent's talents.

 "Brent is very big and powerful. We faced him in 2018 and it was evident from his play that he is one of the premier players in the country. We know what he brings to the table and are excited to have him on board. With the weapons we have on offense, adding Brent makes it much easier to reach our full potential as a team. We are blessed to have Brent with us and are expecting an All-Pro caliber year from him in 2020"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
