Seems like somewhere along the way , Northwestern head football coach Jimmy Wallace picked up a win that can't be found.
Wallace supposedly had 198 victories heading into the 2001 season , just shy of joining an elite group of South Carolina coaches who have reached the 200-win plateau.
A recount shows that Wallace actually went into the season with 197 wins , with 50 of those as head coach six seasons at Lewisville and 147 in 15 years at Northwestern.
Last week's 28-0 win over Ridge View gave Wallace 198 victories heading into tonight's home game against Irmo at District Three Stadium.
Only 18 football coaches in state history have won 200 or more games , headed by Summerville's John McKissick.Entering his 46th season at the school , McKissick has won 436 games , most by any high school coach in history.
Irmo could make it 199 , with 200 coming on the road next week against Marlboro County.
Knowing that you have won 200 games , if it happens , is good when you sit back and think about it at the end of the season , '' Wallace said.But I don't want to take anything away from our players or staff.
I'm starting my 16th year at Northwestern , 22nd as a head coach , and I thank God in my 30 years I've never been fired.When you coach football , you get paid to win games.I don't know where you would check , but I believe it's safe to say that more football coaches than English teachers have been fired since education started in this state.''.
Wallace has an overall record of 198-62 , a .762 winning percentage.
His teams won state championships at Lewisville in 1986 , then at Northwestern in 1989 and 1993.Ten of his 15 seasons as Northwestern have ended with 10 or more wins , and his worst season was 6-6 in 1995.
Wallace began his coaching career at Lewisville in 1981 when former principal Randy Fitzpatrick took a gamble on the former Rock Hill Bearcats player and assistant coach at York.
All I kept hearing from schools was they wanted someone with head coaching experience , '' Wallace said.
There is no secret , Wallace said.The key to winning is getting kids involved and keeping them interested.In Wallace's first season at Northwestern , 120 players participated in football.This year , more than 200 players make up the school's three teams.
Wallace said when the last school bell at rings at 3 : 40 , he would like for every student at Northwestern to be involved in an activity.
It's a lot more than just winning games , '' Wallace said.We are out here to win kids' hearts.We can do that because we have support from our superintendent , our school board and our principal.
I read last week where close to 60 percent of kids these days come from homes without a father figure.I thank God for my dad.When I was growing up , he was the man ... not the principal , the coach or an attorney.''.
Bobby Carroll was in the fifth grade and Wallace was the head middle school coach at York the first time they met.
I was only 10 , and Coach Wallace put a headlock on me and didn't let go , '' Carroll said.
My brother , Ben , is my sports hero , but if I could be like anybody , it would be Jimmy Wallace.
He believes in kids.He teaches fundamentals.He's a fierce competitor and helps kids learn to believe in themselves.But the key to all of his wins is preparation.We win games on Saturday.That's when we get together and start planning for the next one.''.
Northwestern High School ..., 30 April 2011 [cached]
Northwestern High School football coach Jimmy "Moose" Wallace told The Herald recently a day didn't pass without him thinking about hanging it up after 38 years of coaching.
Wallace, who turns 61 in May, won't be coaching season No. 39. He met with Northwestern principal James Blake and school athletics director Bill Warren before lunch Friday and submitted his resignation as head football coach, effective immediately.
Wallace has been a head football coach for 28 years - 22 of those at Northwestern, the other six at Lewisville High School in Chester County, where he won one state championship.
The Trojans have been a Class AAAA powerhouse under Wallace, who just completed 24 straight seasons of at least 10 victories. In December, Wallace led Northwestern to its third state championship in eight tries on his watch, winning the Class AAAA Division II title. The team's 15-0 record marked the Trojans' first undefeated season in varsity football.
"Over his career, (Wallace) built Northwestern into a notable football power, well respected around the state," Warren said.
Coach Wallace can never be replaced," Warren said.
"We had a special group of kids to work with this season," Wallace told The Herald several weeks ago.
On Friday afternoon, Wallace met with nearly 200 players to notify them of his decision. He challenged them to continue to strive both in the classroom and on the field. The meeting included his right-hand man, William "Q-Rock" Curreton, who has worked for Wallace the last 18 years.
"Coach Wallace has been like a daddy to me ... been good to me," Curreton said.
Wallace is a member of the York County Sports Hall of Fame and in July will be inducted into the S.C. Athletic Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
He graduated from Rock Hill High School, where he was a standout offensive lineman and was voted "Mr. Bearcat" by his senior classmates in 1968. Wallace graduated from Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C.
Wallace was an assistant coach at York and Rock Hill before becoming Lewisville's head coach in 1981, where he went 15-0 and won the Class A state championship in 1986 before moving to Northwestern.
"Coach Wallace is going to be missed by the Northwestern family," Warren said.
Wallace will continue his duties as assistant athletic director and weightlifting instructor at Northwestern through the end of his contract, which expires at the end of June.
