Former Liberty women's basketball and track & field athlete Stephanie Walker, the starting tailback for the Baltimore Burn, has been honored as a 2009 first-team Women's Football Alliance (WFA) All-American.

Walker, a 2006 Liberty graduate, was one of two first-team tailbacks recognized in the National Conference, joining Marirose Roach of the Philadelphia Liberty Belles. Walker finished fourth in the 34-team WFA with 1,026 rushing yards this season. She averaged 13.2 yards per carry and scored 12 touchdowns, helping the Burn go 5-3 and tie for second place in the Northeast Division.

Walker was previously honored on June 6, as the WFA Offensive Player of the Week. The award came on the heels of her impressive performance during the Burn's 46-22 win over the Keystone Assault. Walker racked up 277 yards and five touchdowns on her 15 carries versus the Assault.
