The moment Neldon Gardner stepped into the brand new Skyview High School in 1990, he did not quite envision that he would leave as the only wrestling coach the school ever knew.
Of course, he also didn’t envision the school would only be open for 24 years.
“Well I knew I was going to do it for a long time,” Gardner said at the Luke Spruill Duals at Kenai on Tuesday. “This is 31 years of coaching for me. When I graduated college, that’s what I wanted to do, was coach. I love it.”
