Walker Anderson ’23 earned a $1,000 Drew Medford Memorial Tournament (DMMT) Scholarship over spring break. The DMMT, a three-day scholarship baseball tournament, was established in honor of the former Paschal High School pitcher and TCU signee who was tragically killed in a car accident following his senior year of high school.

Since its founding in 2017, the DMMT has become one of Texas’ most prestigious tournaments, drawing top-flight programs from the Fort Worth area. The 2023 event marks the DMMT’s fourth year as a 20-team tournament after beginning as a six-team event and later expanding to 12 and 16 programs. This year, 27 games were played across six area sites from Thursday, March 9-Saturday, March 11. 

The Drew Medford Memorial Tournament sets itself apart by awarding a scholarship to a senior player from each team participating in the tournament. The DMMT has raised more than $100,000 for local baseball players in its first four years, including a record $40,000 in 2020. Scholarship recipients are chosen by each participating team’s coach, and the player must embody the characteristics of the tournament’s namesake: drive to succeed, humility, empathy for others, and team leadership.


“We love this time of year, and this event plays a huge role in that feeling,” said Baseball Program Director and Head Varsity Baseball Coach Michael Settle ’99. “We are so proud of Walker. He is the perfect example of an all-in teammate, and the scholarship could not have gone to a more deserving student-athlete.”
