Glenn Falls' remarkable sixty-year tenure as an educator, coach, and administrator within the Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools solidified his legacy and led to his induction into the TSSAA Hall of Fame in 2024. His journey began coaching football and eventually transitioned to leading girls' basketball and volleyball teams at several junior high schools in Nashville. In 1978, Falls moved to Glencliff High School, where he significantly impacted the girls’ basketball and volleyball programs.

From 1980 until 2004, Falls helmed the Glencliff girls’ basketball team, compiling an impressive overall record of 460-297, and making two state basketball tournament appearances in 1990 and 1996, with the team securing the State Runner-Up title in 1990.

Under his guidance, the volleyball team won the District 12-AAA title for 21 consecutive years (1983-2003) and made three state tournament appearances, clinching the TSSAA State Championship in 1986 and earning the State Runner-Up title in 1983.

Falls also demonstrated his diverse coaching abilities by leading the girls’ tennis team to a city championship and earning the distinction of TSSAA Tennis Coach of the Year. His commitment to excellence was further recognized through multiple basketball and volleyball coach of the year awards.

His contributions were immortalized when the gymnasium floor at Glencliff High School was named the “Glenn Falls Court.” This honor reflects his enduring influence and dedication to student-athletes in Nashville and his significant service to the TSSAA, marking him as an exceptional figure in Tennessee's high school sports history.
