According to an online article at theoldcoach.com, Wallace wants to remind Runge students of the past as a way to show they what can be possible for the future.
“One thing we’re going to do is talk about history,” Wallace said. “At one time a team here was No. 1 in the state and won 12 ball games. We’re going to make sure they understand it can be done. Kids with the same names have done it. We’re going to preach it all the way down through the junior high.”
