Gregory and Walker named to All-Rookie Team

Andre Walker

Cam GregoryIt wouldn’t be fair to put too lofty of expectations on a player but Andre Walker (above) showed signs that he could be an First Team All-Conference Player by the time he’s an upperclassman. Cam Gregory (right) was the Greyhounds best forward this year and could turn out to be a double-double machine.

—————————————————————————–

Loyola’s two freshman stars, forward Cam Gregory and guard Andre Walker, both earned All-Rookie team honors as the Patriot League announced their postseason awards on Monday.

At times this season, Walker could have been considered the Greyhounds’ most dynamic scorer. He finished third on the team with a 10.4 points per game average, but it was less than one point away from the team best.

The freshman also averaged 4.2 rebounds per game and 2.4 assists per game. He led the team with 51 steals this game.

In 18 of the team’s contests this season, Walker reached double-digits. Once he scored 21 points and seven different times he eclipsed 15 points in a game. Against conference opponents, his numbers increased across the board. After not starting early in the year, his scoring ability forced head coach G.G. Smith to get him out on the hardwood from the opening whistle.

Gregory was the team’s top inside player. He, like Walker, did not start early, but his talent forced his presence in the lineup. Gregory led Loyola with 7.0 rebounds per game and was fourth on the team with 8.1 points per game. For the season, he shot an impressive 51-percent from the floor.

The 6-foot-8, 205-pound power foward forward from Waldorf, MD finished his season with a double-double. He topped double-digits seven times this year and eclipsed 15 points twice.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
