BELLEVUE, Wash. – Redshirt freshman Chance Walker, already named the South Atlantic Conference's Special Teams Co-Player of the Week, has been nominated for the HERO of the Week award by college sports website HERO Sports.


Walker's 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown at Virginia Union marked the second time in the last 26 years a SAC player has returned a kick that distance for a score and set the Newberry kick return record. 

The HERO of the Week award is determined by a fan vote and will be announced on Friday. Walker is up against four other student-athletes from across Division II in the defense and special teams category. Cast your vote for Walker here.
