Herschel Walker, one of the greatest college football players of the last 40 years, is enamored with Presidential candidate Donald Trump. Walker, who won a Heisman Trophy at Georgia and went on to have a successful NFL career, has a history with Trump, which clearly is one of the reasons he’s tabbed the billionaire as his “frontrunner” for President.

In the 1980s, when Walker briefly played in the USFL, Trump owned his team, the New Jersey Generals. As Walker puts it:

"“(Trump) wanted to win and he was prepared to go out and do whatever it took to win. He was a guy that always did what he said he was going to do. “And he invited me into his home. … I’ve gotten to know that family well. I saw the way they were. They were a very good family.”"

Walker is 53 years old, supports Donald Trump’s idea of a wall at the US/Mexico border, but disagrees with the idea of deporting the 11 million illegal immigrants (or undocumented immigrants, if you prefer) from this country.

If you’re keeping score at home, Ronda Rousey, John Harbaugh and now Herschel Walker have chimed in on Donald Trump. What a time to be alive? [via USA Today Sports]
