Hopkinsville Attucks High School
“He would do anything to help young people,” was one of the statements that described Coach Falls. He became the head coach of Hopkinsville Attucks in 1935 and amassed over 500 wins before consolidation into Hopkinsville High School. He led his Wolves to two Kentucky High School Athletic League Championships, one runner-up finish and twelve trips to the State Tournament. As an assistant coach at the new Hopkinsville High School, Coach Falls played a major role in the ‘merging’ of schools, players and community. The results showed in the excitement brought about by the 1969 KHSAA state tournament team appearance made up of Attucks High and Hopkinsville High players. As a legacy to the success and inspiration of Coach Falls, the William Falls Academic Center was built and named in his honor at Hopkinsville High School.
