Fluvanna County Introduces Josh Wallace as New Head Football Coach
New Fluvanna County football coach Josh Wallace
FLUVANNA COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) -
The Fluvanna County football team announced Josh Wallace as its new head coach on Friday.
Wallace spent the last two seasons as the head coach at Buckingham County.
He had a record of 7-13 with the Knights, and was let go after a 5-5 season in 2017.
Buckingham won its final four games under Wallace, and the Knights scored a school-record 84-points in a victory at Cumberland.
Wallace takes over for Steve Szarmach.
The Flucos had a record of 3-27 in Szarmach's three seasons, and they did not win a game in the Jefferson District.
Fluvanna County has not made the playoffs since 2000.
Josh Wallace played football at Liberty University, where he was a defensive back and kick returner.
He has coached players like former NFL and Virginia Tech running back David Wilson.
Wallace says a culture change is necessary to help the Flucos win more games.
"Every coach has his own things that he likes to do," says Wallace. "I've done it before. I think the biggest thing is just showing the young men that you care about them. If you can show them that you care about them, it's going to go a long way. We'll be here for them and that's what counts."
