Athlete of the Month

Sports: Staff writer Ben Nash gives us a description of soccer player Ollie Walker and his special attributes,

If you keep up with sports at East High School than you have probably heard of Ollie Walker. Walker, at 5’9 and 145 pounds, is the center midfielder for the East Varsity Soccer team. He not only plays varsity soccer, but also a part of the Varsity Rugby Squad. Walker was a key player in their 2019 run through the playoffs and to the state final. 

This year Walker looks to make it back to state in both sports. He feels both teams have the potential to win a state championship. To do this, Walker has a lot of hard work cut out for him during this season. 

Walker started off his soccer career when he was only three years old. His biggest influencers in playing soccer are his parents. They both sought out for him to do great, gave him a very supportive environment and always gave him opportunities to get better and have fun.  

Walker is a star in both sports, and hopes to continue his rugby career in college. He hopes to play rugby at his dream school, the University of British Columbia in Canada.
