APB update

The Varsity Letters recently chatted with former Wash High three-sport standout Diontae Walker, who was gracious enough to make a few attempts to get in touch and answer the All Points Bulletin issued for him a few weeks ago.

Walker is going quite well for himself, working full-time outside of Washington County and maintaining strong status in our nation's military corps.

Thanks to cousin Ramonte Barfield, a senior at Wash High and a first-year standout on the Prexies track team, Walker keeps tabs on Wash High sports teams.

Prexies fans will remember Walker as a great football player but also for the no-hitter he pitched in the 1998 WPIAL Class AA championship game. The 10th anniversary of Walker's incredible feat is fast approaching.

"It's been a long time," Walker admitted. "I remember my defense the most. Joe Gregula made several plays in the middle and without those, I would have never had the no-hitter. It was just a good game all around."

The Varsity Letters wished Walker the best in all future endeavors.
