Roughnecks' P.J. Walker named first XFL star of the week

The XFL named Roughnecks quarterback P.J. Walker as its first ever star of the week on Tuesday.

Walker got the XFL in Houston off to a hot start by helping the Roughnecks engineer a 37-17 win over the Los Angeles Wildcats on Saturday at TDECU Stadium.

Walker was a star in Houston's inaugural XFL game, completing 23 of 39 passes and piling up 298 total yards and four touchdowns.

“He’s learning the system, he did some really good things. I was kind of anxious to see him because I had played against him in college,” Roughnecks head coach June Jones said of Walker after the game.
