Inductee

 

Official. His background as a four-time letterman in football, basketball and track at DeWitt High School in Saline County from which he graduated in 1935 helped prepare him for later life where he served as a most knowledgeable official of high school sporting events in Nebraska. Cecil Walker was an outstanding official, especially in basketball, and he was often selected to work the state tournament. For many years he served as a supervisor of officials working the Nebraska state high school basketball tournaments. He also served as a football official for the Big Eight Conference. This able gentleman contributed much to the high level of good officiating enjoyed in Nebraska high school sports.  First person from the officiating community selected for High School Hall of Fame induction.
