Herschel Walker Booking Agency Profile

Herschel Walker is a former NFL running back who played at The University of Georgia and professionally in the United States Football League and the National Football League. Walker is considered by many to be the greatest college football player of all time.

Walker played running back for the University of Georgia, where he was an All-American and won the 1982 Heisman Trophy. Walker was successful even in his freshman season in 1980, setting the NCAA freshman rushing record and finishing third in the Heisman Trophy voting. He would go on to win the Heisman in 1982, his junior year. In 1999, Walker was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame.

In the formation of the USFL, Walker saw an opportunity to do something then forbidden by NFL rules at the time, namely to turn professional after the end of his junior season.

Walker signed with the New Jersey Generals in 1983. He went on to win the USFL rushing title in 1983 and 1985 and in the latter year also gaining over 4,000 yards in total offense. He holds the pro football record for single-season rushing yards with 2,411 yards in 1985, averaging 5.50 yards per attempt in 18 games. In his USFL career, Walker had 5,562 yards rushing in 1,143 carries, averaging 4.87 yards per carry, during his three seasons with the Generals. In 1983, he rushed for 1,812 yards in 18 games. In his second pro season, his rushing yardage dropped to 1,339, but he caught passes for more than 800 yards giving him over 2,100 yards in total offense.

The NFL's Dallas Cowboys acquired Walker's NFL rights by selecting him in the fifth round of the 1985 draft. When the USFL succumbed after its antitrust suit against the NFL in 1986, Walker went to play for the Cowboys, eventually establishing himself as a premier NFL running back with two consecutive Pro-Bowl seasons (1987 and 1988).

In 1989, at the height of his NFL career, the Cowboys traded him to the Minnesota Vikings for a total of five players and six draft picks (which led to Emmitt Smith, Russell Maryland, Kevin Smith, and Darren Woodson).

Walker played for the Vikings for two and a half years before re-signing with the Cowboys, where he was used not only as a running back but also as a flanker and other offensive positions.

If Walker's USFL and NFL numbers are combined, he ranks as one of the most productive professional football runners in history.
