Clay & Nassau coaches 2014-15

Here’s what I know about Clay and Nassau County wrestling coaches for next season:

I am pretty sure (OK, certain) that Jim Reape will return as Clay’s coach next year and that the pipeline of results should continue as they did last year.

I am pretty sure (OK, certain) that P.J. Cobbert has replaced Travis Cunningham as head coach for Fleming Island and with last year’s University Christian results pipeline now moved to Fleming, I believe results should continue as they did last year (so long as the Keystone results are a little more organized this season — that was the only glitch we had).

I am pretty sure (OK, certain) that Chad Parker will return as Orange Park’s head coach next year and that the pipeline of results should continue as they did last year. We had to work at it a couple of times, but Coach Parker came through even with OP’s far-flung schedule as it was.

I am somewhat sure that Ron Warner will return as Ridgeview’s coach next year. I’m not 100% certain on that. But if so, I’m not worried about results coming through as they did a year ago.

I am also somewhat sure that David Knapp will return as Oakleaf’s coach next year. We did miss out on the Knights’ last event at Seabreeze, but otherwise we had pretty much every Oakleaf result a year ago.

I am somewhat sure that Rick Wetherill will return as Middleburg’s coach next year. I’ve had a couple of Middleburg parents volunteer to serve as results coordinators, and I’m grateful. I know the Bronco fans want full results in 2014-15. Let’s see if that can’t happen.

While we’re on the subject of wanting complete results in 14-15, I’ll switch gears to Nassau County and start with Yulee. I am somewhat sure that Brandon Crowder will return as head coach. Like with Middleburg, I’ve heard some things about results getting to me being better next year. That’s encouraging.

I already know (or I have been told, more accurately) that there’ll be a coaching change at West Nassau, as I’ve been told that Forest Wheeler retired after the 13-14 season. So hopefully I will find out soon as to the new coaches.

I already know there’ll be a coaching change at Fernandina Beach, as Joseph Monaghan announced he was stepping down. What’s a little less clear is who will become the head coach next year. Looks like at least one of the assistants will be returning. We’ll see how the results come out.

I covered wrestling for 15 years up north and "retired" in both 1992 and again in 2011. But I couldn't stay away. Started Northeast Florida Matmen in 2013, Northwest Florida Matmen in 2015. We combined those sites into North Florida Matmen in the summer of 2018. And, we've started South Georgia Matmen in November of 2018. Our work is never paywalled, our content is searchable for all time. We're here because the kids keep lacing 'em up, so we'll keep writing 'em up.
