Walker wants to leave new mark - LA Times
Brad Walker and his USC teammates filed into the athletic dining hall after Thursday's practice and glimpsed former Trojan Reggie Bush and the...Saints playing the Super Bowl champion...Colts on TV ...

"I never wanted to be remembered for being the guy that was in such an unfortunate play that some people say cost us the game," said Walker, who was awarded a scholarship in August. "I try not to think of it like that."
