My name is Neal Nutter. My wife and I, along with our 2 children, are moving to South Carolina area this summer (June 2020) and I am looking for a HS Wrestling coaching position. I am a former Division I College Wrestler, a Greco-Roman National Champ, and a University and Senior All-American with 15 years of coaching experience. I am certified to teach Physical Education and Special Education and have 17 years of teaching experience. If you know of any openings for the 2020-2021 school year, please let me know. Email: email@example.com
The COVID has put me into research mode for sure and in organizing some of the data on scmat regarding duals playoffs I noticed some schools that once upon a time were state contenders annually or semi-annually who we really haven't heard from in a while and I wanted to get anyone's thoughts on why they have dropped off comparatively.
Irmo - Between 1996 and 2002 they made the 4A final four 5 times out of 6 seasons and since 2002 have never been back. They've produced certainly some good individuals but maybe not the team necessary to compete at a state level.
Dutch Fork - again between 1996 and 2003 the silver foxes made the final four 7 out of 8 seasons, they last made the final four in 2006 but since then have fallen off in comparison to their history.
Seneca - between 1994 and 2001 Seneca was a powerhouse making the final four 8 straight years. Since 2001 they've been VERY quiet.
Spring Valley - Between 1993 and 2003 the Vikings went to the 4A final four 5 times. So basically every other year they were competing for a trip to state. Since 2003? silence.
Loris - this one is more recent as they made the final four once in this decade but they were on a roll between 2006 - 2011 but haven't done much since.
Lake City - Between 1999 and 2004 they had a pretty solid run in 3A but since then have not produced a final four or state team
There are some others that are more recent such as Hilton Head, North Myrtle and Hanahan who had some really good runs but with the exception of North Myrtle these last two seasons have kind of dropped off.
