HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Phillip "P.J." Walker, No. 11, is quarterback for the Houston Roughnecks.

Walker was born in Elizabeth, New Jersey in 1995.

He attended Temple University, where he played quarterback for the Temple Owls from 2013 to 2016.

After college, Walker was signed by the Indianapolis Colts to play on their practice team.

Walker told ABC13 he loves his new home in Texas because the food is great and the people are kind.

"Just to come here and be in a football state...a state that lives and dies football, that's something I love, something I'm proud to be a part of," Walker said.
