Walk-On Mentality

The Walk-On Mentality is about excelling in life no matter the circumstances. A walk-on signs up for a tough journey knowing that nothing is guaranteed and nothing will be handed to them. Hard work is expected, even if the results are never seen on the field.

Walk On Then Run is about spreading those values to all areas of life. 

Walk On Then Run's Core Values

  • Academics: Finding the value in education and striving to be a life-long learner.

  • Athletics: Using competition to bring about the best version of yourself.

  • Habits: Continuously working on self-improvement to achieve success in all areas of life.


Patrick Laird is a senior at the University of California, Berkeley and is looking to spread the values of a walk-on mentality.
