Walker's coach Randall Robertson said Britten is the consummate student athlete. "He has an exceptional work ethic both academically and athletically. I am confident Walker will continue to be a leader of society and be successful in whatever endeavors he chooses to pursue post high school," praised Robertson. This was one of several comments from teachers who have had Walker as a student.
In addition to performing his shooting wizardry on the basketball court Walker has been an outstanding student in the classroom. Britten has a 4.60 grade point average and is ranked eighteenth which is in the top ten percent of his class.
Basketball is just one of Britten's extracurricular activities at Bridge City High School. Walker has played the last two years on the school's tennis team, is an escort for the Strutters Drill Team, and has been a member of the National Honor Society since 2021.
Walker is also active in his community. He attends First Baptist Church of Orange and has participated in trash and litter clean-up campaigns in Bridge City and in Orange.
Future plans for Britten are to attend college majoring in general business. Walker hopes to play college basketball as well. He has received and accepted scholarship offers from eight universities in Texas for his academics.
