Walker Davey '09: Playing Division One Soccer at Boston College

Alumni Walker Davey TG ’09 gives a nod to his early PE classes at Nashoba Brooks School for exposing him to a wide range of sports.
After graduating, soccer became his primary focus and passion. His hard work eventually led to a spot on the (division one) men’s varsity soccer team at Boston College, where he “walked on” as a freshman.  

“At Nashoba Brooks, I was exposed to so many sports during my PE classes and that foundation fueled my interest. I always encourage kids to play multiple sports because it helps you to become a better, well-rounded athlete,” said Davey. 

After Nashoba Brooks, Davey played varsity soccer at The Fenn School in eighth and ninth grade, before earning a position on the varsity team at Groton School for all four years. Davey served as a team captain for both junior and senior year and took home the prestigious All-League award in his final two years of high school.

In addition to sports, Davey discovered another passion during his time at Nashoba Brooks: math. “I love math. Nashoba Brooks fostered my love for math and learning. I take that passion, and I use it for things that I love to do, such as soccer.” In looking to the future, Davey hopes to continue his pursuits in both math and sports. “I hope to do something involving math, data, or statistics. And I would love to play soccer on a recreational level—town programs or coaching my kids eventually.”
Davey adds that personal excellence is something that motivates him daily. “I wanted to be a better player, always...and that started at Nashoba Brooks. The School wants you to strive to be the best person you can be.”
