After eight seasons that included five state championships, Joey Price has stepped down at Wallace-Rose Hill.  He has told me that he is retiring and hoping to find a coaching position in South Carolina.  

 

Just this past Friday I was able to present him with the 2016 CarolinaPreps.com 1A Coach of the Year award.

Let the speculation begin as to who may replace Coach Price.  I certainly feel it will be someone familiar to the area and most certainly someone from the Jack Holley lineage of coaches.  I also can't imagine it being anyone who doesn't run the Wing-T offense, with the success they've had, it would be crazy to go against what's working. 

 

Not sure if Coach Price's son would be heading to S.C. with him, but he would probably be my first pick.  Outside of that, I could imagine a ton of community supporters wanting Battle Holley back.  While he's got it going and will be one of the top 2A teams this season, he did have one season at the helm for the Bulldogs. 

 

As crazy as it seems, I also wouldn't think twice about hiring Ken Avent, Jr. away from James Kenan.  He would fit in quite well and I'm sure they wouldn't miss a beat. 

 

What are your thoughts on this?

Dont see Battle Holley leaving Beulaville he's got a good thing going with East Duplin and they will once again have a strong team next season.....plus his father shadow looms heavily over him at WRH would not rule out him coming back at some point in his coaching career but not now....Ken Avant lol is he even allowed to drive thru Wallace/Teachey area....man JK would riot if he left for Wallace

It's gonna be hard to find a replacement for Coach Price. He is leaving some BIG shoes to fill. I wish,him all the best. We're gonna miss him. Thanks Coach Price for 8 great seasons!

Coach Price is one of a kind. He has done an outstanding job at Wallace Rose Hill and in the community from day one. He will be missed. Good luck to him and his family with there next challenge. Wherever he ends up they are getting a good one.

Chris, please keep us posted if you hear anything about WRH's search for a new head coach. I'll do the same if I hear anything.
I run into Coach Price's son/asst coach in Wallace last night. He said no one has been scheduled for an interview yet. He did say he was not going to apply.

I wonder it the Ken Avent application is true or just a rumor to get Avent in hot water with JK ?

Coach Price has taken on a new challenge and is the new head coach at St. James high in South Carolina. The sharks went 0-10 last season so he has a new challenge ahead. Best of luck to a great coach and a even better person.

I actually like this hire a lot. Im familiar with Mot from his time at JK when my brother played. Mot had a major focus on the weight room, as did Price so I'm sure the dogs won't skip a beat there. Mot gave off a vibe the made football fun and in return gave those guys a passion to play and confidence that they could win some games which they ultimately did over that timeframe at JK. With the dogs already having a great tradition in winning Im sure they'll be no fall off there. And once again there'll be a bucket hat roaming those sidelines. Mot will do a great job I feel. People may not realize it but those great JK teams of 06-08 were initial products of Coach Mot. The senior class in 06 that lost to T-Ville were freshmen Mot's first year at JK

P.O.T.I'm ready to give Coach Mot a try. I know he's gonna be under a lot of pressure following behind Coach Price (Big shoes to fill). Looking at his record at JK, it was pretty good considering its was his first HC job. Then his N.Hanover record was pretty good also. He had the Wildcats rolling there at one time. I know a lot of JK's former players liked him. I don't feel like we'll have loosing records under him. I hope he does well!
