Career Game Highs
COACH CORBIN QUOTE: In a short amount of time, I have enjoyed watching Walker mature academically and physically. He possesses a very good skill set as a pitcher and has a great mind for all facets of the game. He impacted our pitching staff as a freshman and will continue to do so as he moves forward. His future is very bright in this program.
