Jersey Number 8
Early that autumn, Walker caught the attention of jersey number 8, Riley Gaul. Yes, they were that kind of couple: the beautiful blonde teenager dating the jock football player. Riley was a top student raised by his mother and grandparents. He loved playing football, but he was described by his classmates as a jokester, not the “classic jock” type.
One of Emma’s friends, Zach Greene, said that “He was a little nerdy on the side. A little to himself… from the outside looking in, you’d think he was just a normal guy.”
