super bowl champion Everson WAlls is coming to Battle in the bosque

Everson Walls was born in Dallas, TX on December 28th, 1959.  While growing up in an all black suburb called Hamilton Park he enjoyed playing all sports.  Although his first love was basketball, after playing one year of football at Lloyd V. Berkner High School in Richardson, Texas, that became his ticket to a scholarship at Grambling State University, coached by the legendary Eddie Robinson.  Under coach Robinson's tutelage, Everson matured into a premiere college defensive back. At 6'1", 190 lbs., Everson played numerous positions while at the university and finished up his senior year as an All-American, while leading the nation in interceptions in 1980, with 11.  That didn't seem to be enough for NFL scouts, because he was passed up in the NFL draft, and had to sign a free agent contract with the Dallas Cowboys, coached by the great Tom Landry.  Everson made an immediate impact in the Cowboys secondary.  In the first five years, he was the first player to lead the league in interceptions for three separate seasons, including a club-record 11 interceptions in his rookie year.  Everson continued to play nine seasons with the Dallas Cowboys, before being signed to the New York Giants in 1990, led by none other than Bill Parcells.  It was a magical year for Walls and the Giants as he lead New York's defense in interceptions with 6.  That year for Everson was culminated by a touchdown-saving tackle on running back Thurman Thomas, that secured the 20-19 win against the Buffalo Bills in Superbowl XXV in 1991. Walls went on to play out his final years with the Cleveland Brows, coached by Bill Belichick.  

 

While being mentored by some of the best coaches in college and NFL history, Walls went on to accumulate many honors including:  

Four-Time Pro-Bowl 

Three-Time All-Pro

currently tied for 13th on NFL's all-time interception list with 57 

All-Time Black College Team

1980's All-Decade Team

Dallas Cowboy's 25th Anniversary Team

Cowboy's Man of the Year 1987

 

Everson's Hall's of Fame include: 

SWAC Hall of Fame

Texas Black Sports Hall of Fame

Texas Sports Hall of Fame

Louisiana Hall of Fame  

 

Not bad for a guy that was never drafted out of college.

 

Everson has always been supported by his family, his wife Shreill, daughter Charis and son Cameron.  Years after retirement, in 2007, Everson donated a kidney to his friend and former teammate, Ron Springs.  That life-changing experience inspired Walls to write the book A Gift for Ron: Friendship and Sacrifice On and Off the Gridiron.
