On Thursday afternoon, Brad Walker made preparations for his team’s game versus Midland Dow just like he has for the past 26 years; this one was different, though. For Walker, a former high school science teacher who officially retired from the District in 2011, Thursday’s game at West was his final home game as the Panthers’ coach.
Walker is stepping down to free up some time to spend with his grandchildren. Let’s hope Walker and the girls finish on a high note, with a run far into the state playoffs.
Kudos to Coach Walker for all his years of service of Lapeer Community Schools.
