There's More to Jeff Wallack Than Just Football
The new high school football coach will teach special education at the high school after spending 13 years in the Milwaukee Public Schools system.
It has got to be an exciting time for Jeff Wallack.
On Friday, he coached the Whitnall Falcons varsity football team to an exciting season-opening win in his first game as head coach, and early next month, he and his Falcons will open the high school's brand new athletic field and football stadium.
And let's not forget that Wallack and his colleagues will be opening the 2012-13 school year the day after Labor Day.
