A new addition to the Walker Faculty, 27-year-old Rob Look is a former graduate assistant football coach at St. Lawrence University and alumnus of Washington and Lee. He currently works as a varsity football coach and fitness teacher and is much loved by his students. The head coach at St. Lawrence played with the current Walker varsity head football coach and informed Look that Walker was hiring and he made the trip down south where he plans to stay.

   On the rare occasion he is not coaching, Look, a former fraternity vice president enjoys hanging out and traveling with his friends, watching his favorite movie, Animal House, or completing Sudoku puzzles. Some of his favorite memories from college include having a Taylor Swift song written about him and spending time with friends. Look, an educational leadership major at Washington and Lee, loves coaching and the places it takes him from his hometown of Dallas, Texas to Upstate New York and now Georgia. He hopes to continue coaching because he loves interacting with the kids and seeing them grow on and off the field. In middle school and high school, he played nearly every sport he could from football to track to baseball. Playing and watching football throughout his life inspired him to become a football coach.

   His favorite thing about Walker is the small community and tight feel about it. Having coached and attended smaller universities, the intimate atmosphere at Walker was very

welcoming to him and played an important role in his decision to coach there. Even though he is a new faculty member, Look does not feel new as he is close with several coaches such as Matt Casper, the head football coach, who he stayed with upon first arriving in Georgia.
