Anteater Stadium is a 2,500 seat multi-purpose stadium on the campus of University of California, Irvine in Irvine. It’s where the Anteaters play baseball, a team that has gotten better and better under many coaches. Also part of the national conversation is senior forward Amani Walker, who would lose to Thompson here if we went to the second tie-breaker: best nickname. Unfortunately for Freight Train and the rest, the first tie-breaker is: Player who looks most like he could play bass in Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. As a junior, dreadlocked reggae fan Walker was named to the Soccer America Men's Team of the Week, to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week, the Big West Player of the Week and the UCI College Classic Most Valuable Player. He's picked up the ball and kicked it into the net this season as well. Yugga yugga yooo you!
