Finally, we get to Duval County. A few coaching changes — mostly in the assistant or associate levels, which I am not listing here, because I didn’t for the outer counties — but here’s what I think I know, subject to your feedback…
I am pretty sure, because the new assistant coach told me so, that Kevin Wiley will be returning as head coach for University Christian. We’ll have to have a new provider of stats and results, though, unless they compete in largely the same schedule — I didn’t have too much trouble securing their results last year. (Side note: Everybody should use trackwrestling).
I am also pretty sure that Brian Adkins will be returning to coach at Duval Charter — he’s been organizing off-season events, both wrestling and otherwise. Results were never an issue with the Panthers last season, and I am not thinking they will be this season.
I believe Matt Morris will probably return as the head coach for Bolles. Would like to make sure results are a bit more firmed up in 2014-15. We had most of them, but not all of them, a year ago.
I am guessing, but don’t know for sure, that Paul Schloth will return as the head coach at Bishop Kenny. My stats source is wrapping up college studies, and I’ll see him often enough for sure, but that might not help me with Crusader stats in 2014-15.
I believe Mike Rickey will be returning as head coach at Episcopal. Results were not a problem a year ago, and I don’t think they’ll be a problem again next year.
Lastly, I am guessing but don’t know for sure that Justin Daniels will return at Providence. I know he ran an offseason camp this spring/summer. Results were not the issue for the Stallions a year ago (getting match experience was more of a concern); I think things will be more or less the same next season from a results standpoint.
I know there’ll be a new head coach at Bishop Snyder, and that it is Jeremy Mosley, according to a comment I just read. Powerhouse resume. I know there’ll be several avenues with which to get results next year. Coach Kellum was one of the best about that.
Next up sometime this weekend (we’ll have to see — my father is visiting from Las Vegas) will be the Gateway Conference…
