Her­schel Walker

San Francisco Chronicle - - PAGE 2 -

The re­tired NFL run­ning back says he’s be­ing dropped from speak­ing en­gage­ments be­cause of his re­la­tion­ship with Don­ald Trump. In an in­ter­view on the “TMZ Sports” TV show, the 1982 Heis­man Tro­phy winner said he has known Trump “be­fore he be­came ‘The Don­ald.’ ” Walker said the pre­sump­tive Repub­li­can nom­i­nee is not racist. “Just be­cause you build a wall doesn’t mean you’re a racist,’’ he said. Walker played in Trump’s short­lived United States Foot­ball League, be­fore spend­ing 12 years in the NFL with the Cow­boys, Vik­ings and Ea­gles.
