Frankford High's Kalif Walker and Dobbins Tech's Terrell "Mouse" Barringer have been selected by Eagles safety Brian Dawkins as the winners of his game tickets for tomorrow night's game against the Arizona Cardinals at Lincoln Financial Field.
Walker is Frankford's quarterback and plays defensive back. He has a 3.3 grade-point average, and Ivy League schools are among the colleges interested in him.
"He's very well-spoken and a very good student," Frankford coach Mike Capriotti said. "He's a great athlete; he knows the game inside and out."
Barringer was Dobbins' quarterback and one of the team leaders. "Terrell is playing at an All-Public League level," Dobbins coach Lou Zambino said. "He was an All-Pub baseball player last spring. He is a natural leader, both in the classroom and on the field.
"When he comes into a room, he lights up the room. He has a vibrant personality. He is an excellent student."
Dawkins has teamed with the Daily News to present his tickets to local high school football players for each of the Eagles' home games. The players are chosen for their skills on the field, their achievements in the classroom and for exhibiting great character on and off the field.
The winners must attend the Eagles game with an adult chaperone (parents, guardian, coach) and the Eagles also have provided a pair of pregame sideline passes for each winner.
