Kolstad resigns as Cary head football coach

Posted January 3, 2013

— Ben Kolstad has resigned his position as head football coach at Cary High School, the school announced Thursday.

"Ben has led a quality program that had success on the football field, but even more importantly Ben was successful at teaching young boys how to become young men. He is the type of person that any school or football program would be lucky to have and he will be missed as the coach at Cary," principal Douglas Thilman stated.

Kolstad had been the head football coach since 2004, where he complied a record of 65-46 overall.

Under Kolstad the Imps were Tri-7 Conference Champions in 2005 and qualified for the state play-offs in each of his nine seasons.

Cary had play-off wins during that time over Garner, New Hanover, South View, New Bern and Lumberton.

Kolstad coached several future college players during his time at Cary, Josh Adams-RB(Wake Forest), Jordan Richards-LB(Central Florida), Greg Bechtel-LS(Wake Forest), Chris Barfield-OL(Fairmont State), Bryan Wilson-DB(Fairmont State), Coleman Hornaday-DB(Wofford), Donte Johnson-DB(Fayetteville State), Daniel Polk-QB(Campbell), Owen Thomas-DE(UNC Pembroke) and Jackson Gomez-TE(Davidson).
