Lafayette's Walker still at a loss

Denver Broncos wide receiver Javon Walker, a product of Lafayette's St. Thomas More High School, should be among those who can't wait for the NFL season to start.

But there's a part of him that won't let go, that can't forget. And it all stems from New Year's Eve.

That's when his teammate, Darrent Williams, died in his arms, holding onto Walker after being shot while the two rode away from a Denver club in a Hummer limousine.

Walker spoke publicly about Williams' shooting for the first time in an interview with Andrea Kremer that will air Tuesday on HBO's "Real Sports."

One of the more interesting facts to surface in the interview include Walker's decision to keep -- and not wash -- the blood-stained clothes he wore that night. The former Florida State Seminole said it helps remind him of Williams and the fragility of life.

Hopefully by speaking about the incident, Walker can keep another situation like this from happening.
