Jacksonville man returns home from Paralympic games after taking silver

Jacksonville native and two-time Paralympian, Daryl Walker,  will return home from the 2016 Paralympic games in Rio. 

According to TeamUSA, the U.S. Men’s Goalball team entered this tournament drawn in arguably the most difficult group of the tournament, full of medal contenders.

At the end of the tournament, Team USA finishes the tournament with a silver medal, hopeful about the future.

Team USA made another substitution, bringing in Daryl Walker who scored twice before Lithuania could break through U.S. defense again. In the last two minutes, Lithuania was able to score three more times and the U.S. just once by Joe Hamilton.

A final score of 8-14 solidified Team USA’s hard-earned silver medal finish.

According to his TeamUSA bio, Walker attended the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind in St. Augustine. 

Congrats, TeamUSA!
