1974 Profile: Donnie Walker

Punt Returner-Cornerback
No. 26
Central State (Ohio)
"Buffalo's top punter returner last fall, Walker ran back 25 punts for 210 yards and an 8.4 average. His longest return was 23 yards against the Patriots on December 9 and he had his only pass interception of the season and a 22-yard return in the same game. Donnie was Buffalo's 4A draft pick in 1973 and was used at both cornerback and safety. He has excellent speed and hits with authority.
Walker was a cornerback for his final two seasons at Central State, having played flanker as a freshman and safety as a sophomore. A second-team All-National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics pick and AP All-America choice, Walker was a member of the Pittsburgh Courier All-America squad and named the outstanding defensive player for the West All-Stars in the Ohio Shrine Bowl. Donnie also ran track at Central State.
Business administration and computer programming were his areas of concentration in college. Donnie is interested in programming or television and movie work."
