Former Fort Mill wrestling coach Chris Brock can add hall of famer to his resume.

Among his many career accomplishments, former Fort Mill High head wrestling coach Chris Brock can now put Hall of Fame by his name.

Brock will be inducted Sunday, April 14 as part of the South Carolina chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Class of 2024 for his lifetime achievement to the sport of wrestling.

He is one of eight people named to the hall this year. Each state has a nominating committee who makes recommendations to the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, who then selects the inductees from that state.

“It is certainly a milestone honor to even be considered,” Brock said. “To be a part of it is certainly an honor. I am in good company.”

Brock stepped down from coaching wrestling in 2023 after guiding the Fort Mill High team to their first team dual championship. Brock finished his 23 years as head coach at Fort Mill with a 455-88 record.

He guided Fort Mill to 11 Region championships, seven Upper State title appearances and the 2023 5A state championship at the team level.

On an individual basis, he has helped to produce 26 wrestlers who have won more than 100 matches in their career at Fort Mill. He has also helped to guide 20 different wrestlers to a total of 28 individual state championships. He has overseen two national champions and at least 15 All-Americans while at Fort Mill High. He has been involved in coaching the sport for 34 years.

Brock grew up in Rock Hill and wrestled for Rock Hill High as well as was an assistant coach there for a decade before coming to Fort Mill in 2000.

A banquet and induction ceremony will be held at the USC Alumni Center in Columbia on April 14.
