Geelong's Lara recruit Jack Walker made his VFL debut in 1930 and was on a wing when the Cats overcame Richmond in the following season's Grand Final. Tall and elegant, he passed the ball superbly with either foot, and was direct and purposeful in everything he did. A centreman or wingman for much of his seven season, 76-game league career, he was shifted to the backlines later on and continued to perform reliably. Jack Walker played interstate football for the VFL.
