Walls has served Desoto Central High School as the Assistant Softball Coach and as an assistant baseball coach. During his time at Desoto Central, he has coached a district championship softball team and four baseball state championships.

But, I feel very confident that he leaving this growing program in good hands,” says Tabitha Beard, OSD Activities Director.
