Monday notes and links — Former Husky Walker headed to Brown

I wrote in December about Husky safety Greg Walker and his future plans to attend medical school.

As Paul Harvey might have said (and you need to be about 45 and over to get that one, probably) here’s the rest of the story. Walker wrote in an e-mail over the weekend that he has been accepted to the medical school at Brown University in Providence, R.I.

Walker had some other offers but said Brown was “the only school that wrote personalized emails throughout the whole admission process. The director of admissions took a special interest in my life and my family. The medical school had a family atmosphere to it.”

He also said he “liked the fact that Brown is surrounded by 7 different hospitals that I could potentially work at. Furthermore Brown is really involved in working with/in underserved areas, which is very important to me.”

Walker was named UW’s Special Teams Player of the Year each of the past two seasons, and while he had one more year of eligibility remaining if he had wanted it, decided to end his football career after last season to begin medical school.
