Walker is thriving during his freshman season with the Bulldogs

Garfield High School graduate dominates the boards in the Northwest Athletic Conference.

Bellevue Bulldogs freshman men’s basketball player Curtis Walker is averaging the coveted double-double throughout the first eight games of the 2018-19 season.

Walker, who is averaging 15.6 points per game and 13 rebounds per outing, has provided a spark to the Bulldogs basketball program.

“It is very special to me to make an impact right away on this program because I’ve put all of the work in the offseason and leading up to this season,” Walker said.

Walker thoroughly enjoys playing for Bulldogs head coach Donald Brady.

“I enjoy playing under coach Brady because he allows me to play my game and I never have felt more comfortable in a system like this before,” Walker said. “My individual goals on the court this year is to try to lead this team to the NWAC (Northwest Athletic Conference) championship, to average a double-double (per game) and lead the NWAC in most rebounds per game.”

Recently the Bellevue Reporter had an opportunity to ask Walker some questions about his life away from the basketball court.

Bellevue Reporter: What is your favorite movie of all time?

Curtis Walker: “The Game” starring Michael Douglas.

BR: Where do you see yourself in five years?

CW: I can see myself with a degree from a four-year university and playing basketball overseas.

BR: What kind of music are you listening to the most in your car right now?

CW: I’m listening to a lot of rap and hip-hop. I mostly listen to rappers like Lil Yachty and Gunna.

BR: If you could pick one person to go to dinner with, who would it be?

CW: It would be rapper Gucci Mane because his life story is crazy and the very tough obstacles in life he had to overcome.

BR: What is your biggest pet peeve?

CW: It is finding hair on my plate or near my plate. I will completely stop eating whatever I was eating.

BR: What is your dream vacation spot?

CW: Dubai.
