What Are They Doing Now?

Walker made his dream to play pro sports turn into reality and is now USA’s best center-back who plays for Major League Soccer club Nashville SC and has secured his place in the United States National Team.

However, the road to USMNT wasn’t easy and smooth. Walker didn’t walk on the pitch road to success; he struggled to pave his way. From Sever’s disease to multiple injuries, Walker overcame it all to become captain of the USMNT and one of the wealthiest defenders in MLS history.

On the other hand, Walker’s older brother, Dawson Zimmerman, is a Punter in Gridiron football. He is an ACC All-American, Academic All-American, and Ray Guy Semi-Finalist for Clemson University. Dawson is now a well-known punting coach who has trained punters and kickers with One-on-One Kicking since 2012.

One-on-One Kicking is the training facility and camp for punters, kickers, and long snappers. Dawson Zimmerman has personally coached many NFL punters like AJ Cole, Tyler Newsome, Blake Gillikin, and Ian Berryman. He is now the director of Punting at One-on-One Kicking, Atlanta.

Both brothers, Dawson Zimmerman and Walker Zimmerman are doing their best in their respective careers. However, their eldest brother, Carter, lives away from the spotlight, and nothing is known about his career.

All three brothers share a close bond with each other. During Walker’s first World Cup match in Qatar in 2022, all his family, including Carter and his wife, Alison Moore, was there to support their youngest one.
