Childs Walker is a sports enterprise reporter for The Baltimore Sun. Since joining The Sun in 2001, he has covered Carroll County politics, Anne Arundel County land use, the Orioles, higher education, the September 11 attacks, a Super Bowl and well, you get the picture. He grew up in Baltimore, learning to put Old Bay on everything and be suspicious of Washington, attended Gilman and graduated from Emory University. He’s a fan of pro basketball, boxing and professional wrestling because they’re among the few sports (or sports entertainment) he’s rarely asked to write about.
