Walker quarterback Terry Bozeman III, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound junior, is a first-year starter who completed 16 of 30 passes for 413 yards and six touchdowns in a 43-42 double overtime loss to Springfield last Friday. Bozeman’s yardage total ranks second among Louisiana’s single-game leaders released by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association. Through two games, Bozeman has 553 passing yards for Walker (0-2), which hosts Pineville (1-1) Friday night.

What was the most passing yards you had in a game before last week?

“I really don’t know, that’s not something I ever kept track of.”

Did you have any idea how many passing yards you had last week?

“No I didn’t. I was just trying to help win the game. They told me I passed for a lot of yards after the game but I didn’t know how many until I saw it in the paper the next day.”

You consider this to be more of a team accomplishment than an individual one. Why?

“It wouldn’t have been possible without the guys on the line blocking or the backs in the backfield. Seven different guys caught passes, so everybody really had something to do with it.”

What was your favorite play last week?

“We were in overtime and we fumbled the snap and wound up at the 20. But we came right back to score a touchdown. Our running back, Jalen Hills, came out of the backfield and went down the sideline and I hit him in stride and he went in to score.”

How did you prepare for the season?

“I worked on everything, I guess my footwork more than anything else.”

Your team is off to an 0-2 start. Do you believe the Wildcats can turn it around?

“Yes I do. There are things we need to clean up and get better at. We didn’t win, but I think what we did last week can help us get there.”
