Heschel Walker has been noticeably scarce in the wake of his unsuccessful attempt to unseat Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock last fall.
Walker, who lost a runoff election to Warnock, has been absent from the public eye since then and hardly posts on social media. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution claims the former football player has only made a few appearances post-December, while he has also rejected the conservative media outlets which supported his run.
The aforementioned publication’s Greg Bluestein making a note of Walker’s disappearance got social media talking, with most users seemingly pleased to learn of his withdrawal. You could see some of the reactions right below:
Walker was a star running back at the University of Georgia, winning the Heisman Trophy as a junior.
He spent three seasons in the USFL before it shut down, joining the Dallas Cowboys, for whom he had two stints during a 12-year NFL career.
A two-time All-Pro and two-time Pro Bowler, Herschel attracted most of his plaudits as a college player, having won the 1980 National Championship. He was also a three-time SEC Player of the Year and a three-time unanimous All-American. His No. 34 was retired by the Bulldogs in 1985.
As for Walker’s political career, it didn’t quite go as planned, with multiple allegations surfacing after he announced his intention to run.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
