"It's not just his hitting and passing, it's everything about him," Flintridge Prep Coach Sean Beattie said. "He is very down to earth and complimentary of his teammates." Whether it was a forceful kill, timely block, perfectly executed ace or just picking up his team's intensity, Walker embodied all the aspects of an all-round player and teammate.
