Logan “Robby” Raabe always wanted to be in the elite group of coaches in South Carolina. He achieved his dream this week when coaches in Region 4A, Class 5A selected him as the 2021 Coach of the Year. Raabe is the head wrestling coach at Ridge View High School. 
“Being a top coach in South Carolina has definitely been on my bucket list of things I wanted to accomplish in my career. I’ve been coaching for more than a decade. I love what I do but more importantly, I love having the opportunity to work with some amazing students who really deserve the credit for this award,” said Raabe. 

Brian Rosefield, Athletics Director at Ridge View says he could not be prouder of Raabe’s individual achievements and particularly of what he has been able to accomplish with the team. “For the first time in a long time, Ridge View will have a wrestling team competing in the playoffs this year, which is very exciting for the athletes and the school,” said Rosefield. “Additionally, Ridge View senior Joshua Williams is the 2021 Region Champion for the 160 pound weight class.”   

Raabe has been coaching the Ridge View Blazers since 2019. He is a graduate of Sumter High School.  Raabe also graduated from Limestone College in 2012.  He holds a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education.  Raabe is employed by the Richland County Sheriff’s Department and works as a School Resource Officer at Burton-Pack Elementary School in Richland School District One.
