Opelousas LA, Coach Alonzo Walker has always called the basketball court home. After a car crash left him paralyzed waist down, Walker was offered a coaching job at Opelousas High. “I understand there’s a million of people who wish they could be doing what i do” said Walker before getting the players on a bus to play against Southside High. “I try and tell them you don’t have to be a victim of your circumstances.”
A decade later Coach Zo still helps with generation passing through the Opelousas gym, hoping to one day be a head coach of his on team.
