How would he like to follow up that performance this year? "With more wins," says Walter, pointing to the Sun Devils' 8-6 finish last season. "I couldn't care less about stats and yards."
Though his midrange passes leave vapor trails, Walter throws the 50-yard bomb with such ease and accuracy that he looks as if he's lobbing car keys over a fence to a friend. He doesn't know how far he can throw the ball because he has never tried to find out. "When I reach back and throw it as far as I can, I feel like I haven't thrown it as far as I can," he says.
It's a scary thought: Even after an eye-popping season, Walter has yet to fully tap his potential.
