Darwin Walker serves on Pennoni’s Board of Directors. Darwin, a nine-year NFL Veteran widely regarded as one of the best defensive tackles in the NFL during his career, is best known in the Philadelphia area for the integral role he played on the NFC Champion Philadelphia Eagles from 2000-2007. Darwin also played for the Chicago Bears and the Carolina Panthers in 2008 and 2009. The slogan on his website, “Engineered to Sack,” speaks to his second passion, civil engineering.
