He also played for the Georgia Steamers, one of the most iconic soccer clubs in the South. Walker attended Bryan College (NAIA) in Tennessee, and played as a midfielder for the Lions. In the summer of 1998, Walker traveled to France with a semi-pro team from Nashville, and competed with French regional teams around Paris. He was in Paris the night the French beat Brazil in the World Cup championship match. Walker continued his competitive career from 1998-2004, playing midfield and goalkeeper for LA United in the Arcadia International Soccer League, an unaffiliated 3rd division city league, helping the Blues win the divisional title in 2002.

Walker is in his second year as the Providence men’s coach, taking over for Sam Mahtani, who started the program four years ago. Walker also coaches with Sam at Maranatha High School, where the Minutemen reached the quarterfinal round of the CIF tournament in 2017. Walker is working on acquiring his D license through US Soccer.
