I was stunned last Friday to hear of the death of a fine coach and human being who transformed NU football into something good and competitive, something to be proud of as an alumna. My husband (BSE 1978) and I have long been season ticket holders and have thoroughly enjoyed the ups and downs of the seasons, journeyed to San Antonio, Detroit and El Paso for bowl games to support the successes and efforts of a fine coach, staff and young athletes.

Coach Walker transformed NU football from a laughingstock in the NCAA to a serious contender, and from what I hear influenced his players in a lot more than football. For the latter, the greater credit and thanks.

The sorrow of his family and friends is shared by both of us. May God's strength give you aid at this sad, sad time.

Sherry (BSJ 1978) and Ken (BSE 1978, MM 1982)

Despite never having the pleasure of meeting Randy Walker, it was easy to respect and admire him for the way he handled himself through life. His professional and ambassadorial manner both on and off the field was second to none. The Buckeye Nation, college football, and our country will miss you, Randy. May your family find peace in the character and spirit you have shared with all of us.

You're kidding me...he cant be gone...He was one of the greatest tailbacks in OHHS history..when I was a senior in HS our football trainer took us to the Bengals camp in Wilmington..he had known Randy from Miami..Randy got us down onto the field and spent a few moments w/ us..then we got to meet some of the players..what a gentleman!!! As an OSU alum..I always rooted for Randy..it was easy..he coached just like he played!!!Godspeed Randy Walker!!!

It is with great sadness the entire Schweighardt family extends their deepest sympathies to the Walker family. Mrs. Walker may the outpouring of love and admiration for your husband give you a sense of comfort in your grief. To Abbey and Jamie may you feel surrounded by the strength, character and love of your dad. Our throughts and prayers are with all of you.

I was always proud of my years at Northwestern (1989-1992). The memories will always be with me.

Since graduation way back then, I have realized that Northwestern molded me in more ways than I can describe.

Your success at NU was a rallying point for alums across the country. It enabled us to share that pride in a way that fans of other programs understand. It wasn't until the Cats started seeing some success that I would see purple jerseys in sports bars.

But beyond the win/loss column, your program did something else for me. The success of the football program under your leadership proved that the little guy can beat the odds and compete with traditional football powers. I frequently use the 'Cats as an example to show my son that hard work and the right attitude can overcome anything.

Thanks for the memories!

Although I never met Randy, I felt like I knew him, being a season ticket holder. Randy has done a remarkable job at NU and his enthusiasm and motivational spirit will be difficult to replace. My thoughts and prayers go out to Randy and his family

my deepest condolences go out to coach walker's family and everyone he has touched with his presence. i became a wildcat fan and a football fan in general when i came to NU this past fall and it was through coach walker's dedication to his team that made me love the game. he will surely be missed. my prayers go out to his wife, kids, and the nu athletic family.

Some of the finest memories from my first three years at NU took place in the student section at Ryan Field.

Thank you, Coach, for making those memories so special. You will be sorely missed.
