Walters Back in Action

Mississippi State commitment Bo Walters and Briarwood Christian are having a season that all prep football players dream of. After eight weeks of action, the Lions remained unblemished.

"We're real excited about things," said Bo. "We play Chelsea this week and it will probably be our toughest region game. We're trying to get through these next two weeks and get healthy. Then we'll try to make a run for it."

Briarwood is currently ranked number one in the state if Alabama, so every team they play will be bringing their best effort.

"There were a lot of expectations for us," said Bo. "I think we were ranked number two when the season started and that puts a little pressure on you. We're just trying to stay humble. We are practicing everyday to make ourselves better. We are focused on what we do more than what our opponents do."

Bo returned to action this past weekend after sitting out a week.

"I played this past Friday night for the first time in two weeks," said Walters. "I had a little stinger problem and coach wanted to rest me. It was fun to get back out there this past week. I think I played well. I had 15 tackles and I think seven of them were solos. It was a good night for all of us. We played well as a team."

The talented linebacker reports that he spends a lot of time working on his mental reps with the same intensity that he does his physical reps.

"This is a big week for us," said Bo. "The main thing for me is relaxing. I have to relax and play calm, because I get so jacked up that I will just play crazy. I try not to think about it a whole lot until about Thursday night and Friday during the day. I watch as much film as I can to get to know their formations and what they like to do with each down and distance."

Walters reports that he stays in regular contact with the Bulldog coaching staff.

"The whole staff wrote me a letter," said Bo. "I just got it all in the mail yesterday. They said that they were glad I made it down to the game. They told me that they were proud of the decision that I made and that I wouldn't regret it. I am 100%, 110% solid in my decision. I feel that God has a plan for me there at Mississippi State, so that's where I am going to be." Recommended Stories
