It may surprise many to know that former University of Georgia football star Herschel Walker chose college versus a military career by simply flipping a coin. Speaking to an audience Thursday morning at Fort Stewart’s Main Chapel, the Heisman Trophy winner admitted he didn’t want to go to UGA at all — at first.

Walker talked about his personal transformation after learning that his struggles, which he said started in childhood, were due to dissociative identity disorder.

While the emphasis of his lecture was overcoming his personal obstacles Walker also talked about his days as a Bulldog, his NFL career and the resurrection of his athletic career as a mixed martial arts fighter just recently.
