  1. Yes sir, still coaching at OP. Next year will be my last year as the head coach though. I work in Charlotte now and the commute is too much to be at practice by 3:30 every day. We’re looking for an assistant head coach at the end of the season that can take over after next season. I’ll stay on as an assistant, but will have new coach run practices and manage team.
  2. We had match a few weeks ago that my wrestler lost outright and that is not my gripe. My gripe is that he lost by tech fall on a call that I am extremely confused about. His opponent earned two 2 point back exposures and one 3 point back exposure with the knee trapped against the back of the leg. After the match was stopped due to a technical fall (17-2) I confronted the ref and asked why he allowed the leg trap. He told me that it can be used for tilting and back point control. I told him it is my understanding that the trapped leg is only legal in any capacity at the college level and in freestyle. I also stated that the leg must be released at or before 5 seconds after a takedown or breakdown. He told me I was wrong and I needed to calm down, I ended the conversation with a couple of choice words under my breath, across the room, into the stands, and finally calmed down. Perhaps I unnecessarily lost my temper for a rule I am ignorant about. What is the rule on the leg trap at the high school level? Again, my wrestler lost the match to a much better wrestler that day and the score would have still been 10-2 going at the end of the 3rd period. I am just confused about how he lost due to what I believe to be a illegal hold.

    Slam Weekend

    How about that Sam Emery! With a performance like that he could really upset the state tournament this year!
  4. January 19th we are hosting a dual tournament at Orangeburg Prep. A few teams that committed can no longer attend. We need to fill those spots as soon as possible. If you are interested in sending your team please let us. If you have a solid JV squad and need to get them mat time we would be happy to have them down. Guaranteed 4 duals and medals for top 3 team’s wrestlers. Contact info is: jray@orangeburgprep.com
  5. 100 wins is a milestone I think! 25 wins each season is a solid career in my book. I also feel the competition the athlete faces is a big factor. 100 wins in 5A and 100 wins in SCISA is two totally different careers.
  6. Has anyone heard or been in contact with Dutch Fork regarding their tournament this season? I’ve been trying to find out if they are still hosting the Silver Fox Tournament, but I have not received any information.
  7. If you have a kid that wrestles or coach wrestling you know what it can do for a kid’s confidence! It also builds them up inside and makes them tougher then other kids! Regardless of any type of success it will make them better and stronger people! I’ve seen my kid go through some stuff the past few months that would make most kids and adults give up! He still fights and never gives up!
  8. Ethington's family moved into the Eastside area. He went to a camp with my son and while there he and his mom told us his family has moved. Have no reason to doubt it, very nice family!
