Brooks Wallace Memorial Award

The 1986 Texas Tech baseball yearbook was dedicated to the loving memory of former Red Raider All-SWC shortstop and assistant coach Brooks "Gator" Wallace. Brooks passed away March 24, 1985, after a lengthy battle with leukemia at the age of 27. He was the Southwest Conference's top shortstop in 1980, helping the Raiders to their first SWC Post-Season Tournament appearance. Brooks joined the Red Raider coaching staff after playing on the professional level in 1981 and 1982. He served as a graduate assistant under Kal Segrist in 1983 and was an assistant under Gary Ashby in 1984 and 1985. The Plano native was married to the former Sandy Arnold and they had one daughter, Lindsay Ryan. This award is presented at each alumni game in honor of Wallace. Previous winners are: Berl Huffman, 1987; Kal Segrist, 1989; John Owens, 1991; Gary Ashby, 1994; and John Bickley, 1995.
