Colts Rookie Anthony Walker Fulfills Childhood Promise He Made His Dad, Buys Him a Lexus (Video)
The road to the NFL is an uncertain one, and once you’re lucky enough to get there, you’ll likely spend your few years in the league hanging on for dear life.
Colt rookie Anthony Walker likely knows that. Nonetheless, he still took the opportunity to make good on a promise he made to his father as a ten-year-old, hand-delivering his dad a Lexus after making it to the NFL.
He shared the fulfillment of his promise on Twitter:
10 Year Old Me: Dad If I’m Blessed To Play In The NFL, I’m Going To But You A New Car.

Walker was a fifth-round pick out of Northwestern, and he managed to get his degree, too. So he’ll likely be in decent shape, even if this whole NFL thing doesn’t pan out in fairytale fashion.
