The UNB Reds/Papa John’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week is Dan Walker, from the men’s soccer team.

Walker was a steady force as the Reds marched to Atlantic University Sport championship game.

In Thursday's quarter-final win over Moncton, Walker scored one goal on three shots on net.

In Friday’s dramatic semi-final win over St FX, the fourth-year striker pressured the X-Men with four shots.

In Sunday’s final, Walker registered another shot in a solid performance at both ends of the turf.

Twice, Walker was named UNB’s player of the game.

“Dan continued the fine form from the regular season and carried it into the playoffs,” said Reds head coach Miles Pinsent. “He had a big presence in all three of our games in the conference championship tournament.”

Walker and the Reds will compete at the U SPORTS men’s soccer championship, at the University of British Columbia, Nov. 8-11.
