I played freshman football and basketball as well as Varsity baseball for coach . Our 1965 baseball team won the NIL Division Championship and was the first boys sports varsity championship ever. We threw him in the Cumberland River at Shelby Park after we defeated a very good Antioch team 1to nothing. He was a dedicated and hard working coach and educator. In the last few years he attended our Maplewood lunches and had mellowed quite a bit. All of his athletes shared many memories. RIP Coach...ld

Coach Woodall was an excellent teacher but also a friend to his students. My brother Danny looked up to him so much. He always attended our Reunions and was so sweet. God definetly has another Angel. Prayers for the family.
