After a senior season that saw him be named to three All-American teams, Owensboro native KiShawn Walker has been named to the D2Football.com Elite 100 team. The Elite 100 team is comprised of the top 100 DII players in the country. Walker named to the second team and was one of just four G-MAC athletes to be named to the team.

Walker finished the season with 17 pass breakups, five interceptions, one pick-six, 39 total tackles, two TFL, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. He notched two games with three pass breakups and set a career high against Findlay with four. In just two years of play he ranks seventh in career passes defended in KWC history. His 22 total passes defended put him at fourth all time in a season in KWC history, and the first person since 1992 to eclipse the 20 passes defended mark. 

This season Walker was named to three All-American teams, First Team All-Region, and First Team All-Conference. He is the first Wesleyan Football Player to be named to an All-American team since Cole in 2016, and the first defensive player since Hall of Famer Brian Seider was named to the All-American First Team in both 1996 and 1997. 

Walker will be showing off his skills at the College Gridiron Showcase in Fort Worth, Texas on January 8-12, 2022.
