Orlando, FL--Clemson's Greg Walker has been selected as one of 300 student-athletes to participate in the 2001 NCAA Foundation Leadership Conference. The co-starter at right guard on Clemson's 2001 football team will attend the conference at Disney's Wide World of Sports from May 28 through June 1.


Part of the CHAMPS/Life Skills Program, the NCAA holds the
conference as a means to promote better communication among
student-athletes, coaches, administrators and communities. Over
1,300 students have already taken part in the program over the last
three years. The chosen athletes for the 2001 conference will
represent all 22 NCAA sports and more than 20 countries. Walker is
the only Clemson student-athlete who will attend.


A strong overall performance in spring practice earned Walker
a co-starting spot on Clemson's depth chart going into the 2001
season. Walker appeared in all 12 games last season, primarily on
special teams. The native of Sumter, SC got off to a fine start in
2000, playing 81 of his 115 snaps over the first three games of the
season. The rising red-shirt sophomore captured everyone's
attention against Duke, where he graded 100 percent for 17 plays -
the highest grade for any Tiger lineman given a minimum of 10 plays
in 2000.
