HOUSTON -- As a young boy, Hardreck Walker had no desire to play football. He didn't like practices. He even quit.

But his mother wasn't having it. And now, the Houston Westfield defensive tackle and 2013 Texas A&M commitment is grateful for her insistence.

"She started me at 4," Walker said of his mother, Morgan Hall. "I didn't want to play football. She started me in flag football. I quit twice."
