Brad Hawkins on "Walker, Texas Ranger" (1999)

Brad Hawkins (voice of Trey, Zeo) played a minor role in the two-part Season 7 episode "Team Cherokee" back in 1999. Hawkins played Wade Coltrane, a race car driver employed by Freddy Forbes, a ruthless businessman who plans to win at all costs, even if it means sabotaging his biggest competition, Team Cherokee, which consists of a group of Native Americans, trying to raise money to build a school on their reservation. Of course, Forbes' deceptive tactics soon fall onto the radar of Texas Ranger, Cordell Walker (series star Chuck Norris), leading him to get involved to bring justice to the situation. Hawkins appears in only a few scenes of the two-parter, mostly in racing scenes, as he competes for victory. Wade is shown to be oblivious to his boss's dirty tactics. In one scene he calls his team to warn Team Cherokee when he spots their car leaking brake fluid, but they do not heed his warning, hoping it will allow Wade to win. Brad Hawkins is the second PR alum on the blog for appearing on "Walker, Texas Ranger." Blake Foster was the first.


Season 7 of "Walker Texas, Ranger" is available on DVD
