Tulane students design T-shirt to help Devon Walker

New Orleans, La. - Two Tulane seniors, who started their own clothing line as sophomores, have designed a T-shirt to raise money for injured football player Devon Walker. Brad Girson and Jesse Schwartz created both a T-shirt and wristband bearing Walker's name and his jersey number, which is 18.

All net proceeds from sales will be donated to a fund that has been established for Walker, whose spinal cord was severely injured while trying to make a tackle Saturday in Tulane's game at Tulsa. He underwent three hours of surgery the next day and is in stable condition at a Tulsa hospital. The long-term prognosis is unclear.

T-shirts can be reserved at http://tulane.edu/devonwalker/t-shirt.cfm and picked up at the LBC quad on Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at a booth staffed by Girson, Schwartz and Tulane student-athletes. Shirts and wristbands will also be available for purchase at the booth, as well as the Tulane bookstore and the Tulane Team Shop in the Wilson Center.

T-shirts are $20 each and come with a free wristband. Wristbands can also be purchased separately for $5 each.

Schwartz and Girson, who describe themselves as "huge fans" of the Green Wave football team, see the sales as an opportunity to assist Walker and his family while also uniting the Tulane community.
