So long, Skipper: Brad Walker coaches final home softball game at Lapeer West

Brad Walker, longtime head varsity softball coach at Lapeer West, coached in his final home game on Thursday versus Midland Dow. Walker, a science teacher at West for many years, retired officially from teaching in 2011.
This softball, signed by his current players, was given to Coach Walker on Thursday.

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.
