Waiting Child: Bowling with Walter


Tulsa, OKLA. - 17 year old Walter is good at just about everything he attempts, including bowling.

We found that out after the fine folks at Andy B's on South Lewis let us bowl a number of frames.

Or attempt to bowl.

"Most important part, having fun," Walter says.

He did have fun but you get the idea that whatever Walter does, he's having a good time. A young man with a good heart and spirit.

When it comes to school, Walter can be very serious. Especially with math.

"I like it, I'm good at it. It's my favorite subject. Then I have gym after that. Then I have to work on my shots in basketball," he said.

His sports passion is basketball and he loves winning and team work, but not in that order. Walter also works hard and is usually the first guy at practice. He also understands the importance of being a leader.

"How are you going to have a team without a leader? Every team needs a leader. If there's no leader, then it will just be chaotic," Walter exclaimed.

Walter is not a fan of chaos, especially at home where he knows what's important in a family.

"I don't really care about the city or country as long as they're clean people. Respectful, loving, kind, grateful and they are not going to run over you."
