In this two-part interview, we'll share with you the life of one of the greatest running backs in the history of football, Herschel Walker. “I always want to be the best” has been his mantra since Day 1. Herschel tells of his commitment and drive to live up to his full potential in everything he takes part in, be it education, athletics, or, in life.
