Coaches Hall of Fame: Guy Mytty

Hall of Fame – 1998
Even though his boyish good looks don’t attest to the fact, Coach Mytty has been in the business of wrestling for some 30 years. He wrestled at Fremont High School for Hall of Famer John McMullen, then went on the Midland College where he received further instruction at the college level under another Hall of Famer, Max Kitzelman. Winning more than he lost, Guy was ready for the coaching end of the business. His first job was in Tekamah where he is today, a fine tribute to the popularity of this gentleman. Recognized as one of the outstanding coaches in Nebraska, Coach Mytty has compiled a record of 169-19-1 in his 18 years of coaching. His teams have collected 14 conference titles, 12 district titles, and three state titles. Guy joined the NSWCA in 1975 and soon became involved when he agreed to organize a “blitz” campaign in his community on the newspapers in the state to receive more wrestling coverage. He has served three times as a rater of prep wrestling, on the NSWCA Board three times, NSWCA president, currently president-elect, and 1985 NSWCA Coach of the Year. Truly dedicatd to wrestling, he has been a clinician at various clinics and gives time to the kid program in Tekamah. Qualifying an average of 7-8 wrestlers for state each year, Guy feels one of the greatest things about his sport is the closeness you achieve with the wrestlers. One of the highest compliments, he feels, is when a former wrestler still refers to him as “coach”. He is pleased to see his wrestlers become outstanding young men in whatever endeavor they pursue. This humble coach feels that watching wrestling in Nebraska develop, the small school growth, the growth of the state meet, the Parade of Champions and many other things combine to make wrestling a “unique experience.”
