William S. Stallings was an American soccer forward who played professionally in the Major Indoor Soccer League and American Indoor Soccer Association. After leaving professional soccer, he worked as a real estate developer in St. Louis, Missouri.
Stallings graduated from Rosary High School in St. Louis, Missouri. He attended Southern Illinois University Edwardsville where he played on the men’s soccer team from 1981 to 1984. He was a 1984 Third Team All American and led the team in scoring in 1983 and 1984.
In June 1985, the St. Louis Steamers selected Stallings in the first round of the Major Indoor Soccer League draft. He played one season for the Steamers before being released. He then played ten games with the Fort Wayne Flames of the American Indoor Soccer Association during the 1986–1987 season before retiring from professional soccer.
During his tumultuous post-soccer career, Stallings first spent two years as an ATF agent. Stallings left the ATF and returned to St. Louis to become a real estate developer in 1989. He was instrumental in the renovation of the Chase Park Plaza in 1999 but was also convicted twice for financial misconduct. The target of an unsuccessful November 12, 2002 drive-by shooting, Stallings died in his sleep on August 12, 2010.
