Rick Wallace arrived at my alma mater, Shamrock High, in the 1980's. He brought with him a knowledge of football, a passion for life and a self discipline that was shared with staff and students alike. He was my favorite coach and was missed by all when he took a position at another school 'down south'. Little did I know, all these years later, he would no longer be my favorite coach... These days, Rick Wallace is my favorite hero. "Copyright 2012 The Galvestion Daily News. Republished with the permission of the Galvestion County Daily News.
