Abstract:

His world is one without sound. But Kenny Walker made his own noise through his actions growing up in Texas and Colorado. Deaf since suffering meningitis at age 2, Kenny went on to become an All-American at the University of Nebraska before playing five years of professional football, including two with the Denver Broncos in the NFL. The road was never clear for Kenny Walker. But through hard work, perseverance and surrounding himself with people who truly care for him, Walker has been able to lead a life that is a shining example to both those who experience disabilities and those who have not. The married father of four, including a deaf stepson, Kenny Walker refuses to let deafness stop his world from moving forward. He will take the hand dealt to him and run with it as he always has. Learn about his heartbreaking and heartwarming journey in Roar of Silence.
