In his player of the week game, he tallied 94 rushing yards, 10 tackles, an interception, a touchdown reception, and ran the game from the shotgun for a majority of the game. He has been a rock in the Karns secondary, making plays week in and week out. Lockhart isn’t only good on the field but does well in school too, enrolling in honors courses. His favorite movie is Talladega Nights. He has one sister and is very close with his family.

“I go to the sidelines get a drink and just cool off”


What has been your biggest achievement so far?

Walker is just a sophomore and is already aiming high for his career. Within his next couple years, he is going to receive more attention if he continues to follow the path he is on right now. Lockhart hopes to finish this season with a good last win at Clinton, Friday October 29th. The Beavers have clinched a playoff berth, at home, for the first time in recent memory. Lockhart hopes Karns can continue its hot streak and make a run deep into the postseason.
