    Wallace was such an inspiration to many young men in the Louisa Community. He not only taught them football skills, team spirit and determination, he also helped many learn to be proud of who they are and always strive to make the best of any situation. His last year of coaching is most memorable as I can remember Matthew helping with water bottles and whatever Mr. Wallace” needed him to do.Matt wanted to play so bad but was not old enough although he certainly was old enough to learn from him. He will live in the hearts of many young football players and hopefully family members as well forever. I know he touched our family deeply. Brenda, Jason, John, Norman and Jill, we want each of you to know that our thoughts and prayers are with each of you. Please let us know if there is anything we can do. Love, The West Family”
