Lobo pitcher Walker named All-American


ALBUQUERQUE — In 2013 Josh Walker did something for only the fifth time in UNM history: he won 10 or more games in a season. 

Now, he is being honored like no other Lobo pitcher in the history of the program.

Walker was named a preseason third team All-American Tuesday by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. It is believed that he is the first Lobo pitcher to ever earn preseason All-America recognition.

“It feels really great,” said Walker, who is a native of Rio Rancho. “That’s one of the highest recognitions I can receive at this point. I want to thank my teammates and coaches for pushing me so hard. I want to thank my grandparents especially. My grandpa is a father figure to me. He has taught me so well and helped me become a better man. I owe it all to him.”

Walker began 2013 in the bullpen before getting into the starting rotation late in the season. He finished the year 11-1 with seven saves and a 3.66 ERA as the Lobos advanced to their fourth straight NCAA postseason. 

He started UNM’s opening game in the Fullerton Regional and allowed just one earned run in 7.1 innings.
