“I want to welcome Robby Setzler to the Blythewood High School Boys Soccer program,” Wittig, who retired at the end of the school year, tweeted. “You have a good group, strong group of boys coming back for next year. I’m looking forward to seeing you work with them and seeing what they achieve.”

Setzler previously served as head coach at Gilbert High School, winning region championships in each of his two seasons as head coach. Setzler also served as an assistant coach at Brookland-Cayce High School.  A member of the South Carolina High School Soccer Coaches Association, Setzler is also a staff coach with Congaree Rapid FC.

“I’m ecstatic about being named the head coach for the Blythewood Boys Soccer Program,” Setzler said.  “I’m looking forward to getting to work with our players and implementing our system.  I can see our program being a force to be reckoned with in Class 5A.”

“We’re pleased to welcome Coach Setzler to Blythewood,” said Blythewood athletic director Barry Mizzell.  “His vision and enthusiasm for the future of our program will not only benefit the families in our boys soccer program, but also the Blythewood community.  We’re very excited for the continued growth of the program.”
