Herschel Walker KeynoteHeisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker served as the keynote speaker at the Charlotte Touchdown Club luncheon in Charlotte, North Carolina on Thursday, June 26.

In addition to speaking to the crowd, Walker also took the time to sign dozens of replica helmets, jerseys and posters prior to the event which were auctioned off to benefit the Charlotte Touchdown Club.

As one of the most iconic running backs of all-time, Walker is known for staying in incredible shape and competed in high level Mixed Martial Arts as recently as 2011. At the event, a question came up in regards to a USA Today article that ran a few months ago that claimed Walker said he thought he could still play in the NFL.

When asked about the article and if he thought he could still play Walker said, “I didn’t say ‘I thought I could still play.’ I said ‘I know I can still play.’ I’m not saying that in a cocky way. The question was about the game today, and I said I had no doubt because of what I’m doing now. I’m doing the fighting thing (Mixed Martial Arts) and I’m training some athletes during the offseason, that I know I can play.”

“The reason I said that is because today’s running backs don’t play the whole game; they play here and there. I know as a third-down back, I can go in and do things. As a kick returner, I can do things. My speed is still better than a ton of the running backs in the league today. There’s not a doubt that I could play if I wanted to.”

Whether or not we’ll see Walker in an NFL uniform anytime soon is up in the air, but you can bet that if a team does ever call on his services he’ll be physically and mentally prepared to deliver as he always has. Until that time, Walker intends to continue training for his MMA career, training pro and amateur athletes, and helping others through his speaking engagements and community support events.
