5 Questions With: Columbus State CC New Head Coach: DeAndre Walker! - Jun 15, 2013

Newly hired Columbus State CC Head Coach DeAndre Walker is a former player from the school who went on to play NCAA D2 at Fairmont St. Walker then played professionally in the CBA when it was the #1 minor league source for NBA call-ups. Choosing his career and family over his professional opportunities abroad, DeAndre developed into an amazing coach who should quickly lead Columbus State back to prominence. Here are his answers to our "5 Questions With" series:

Q - How does it feel to finally be a Collegiate Head Coach?

A It feels great to have been blessed with this opportunity. If it had not been for the coaches who took a chance on me, and the instrumental part of helping to build the Hidden Gems organization, this opportunity may not have been possible. This will be very special as Columbus State Community College is where my collegiate playing career also started.

Q - What are your thoughts on coaching at the same JC you once before attended?

A Being able to provide young men the same opportunity I was given at the JC level is a blessing. If it had not been for Columbus State, I wouldn't be where I am in life today. The coaching staff of 2000-02 of Anthony Gholson and Anthony Stewart took a chance on me and it has paid off and I would like to return the favor to young men full of potential and great upside and help them reach their life goals.

Q - What type of philosophy do you intend to bring to Columbus State Basketball?

A I have always been a firm believer that the hardest worker can always beat talent. We will strive to work hard in the classroom, on the court, in the weight room and in the community. Our offensive philosophy will be more of an uptempo pace with a little structure provided in order to allow the student-athletes to develop their skill sets and transition their skill work into game like situations. This will provide the exposure and development necessary in order to proceed to a higher level of collegiate basketball.

Q - Is there a specific type of player you will look for to play for you at Columbus State?

A The number one thing I can only ask for is for someone to play hard, buy in and do things the right way. Not just on the court but in life.

Q - What are the best and worst things aspiring coaches can do to work their way up in the coaching ranks?

A The best thing a coach can do is to stay persistent, have patience, connect with a great AAU organization as I did with Hidden Gems and learn to keep the interest of the young student-athletes at the forefront. Also, establish relationships with collegiate coaches, build trust, and never burn any bridges. The worst thing anyone can do is do nothing, you have to make sacrifices and go for it!
