Cary relies on leaders, toughness of team
September 24, 2011Tri-Nine Conference
Cary High football coach Ben Kolstad is from Green Bay, Wisc., and he played his high school football at City Stadium, the former home field of the Green Bay Packers.
Kolstad played quarterback for his father, John Kolstad, at Green Bay East High and the Cary coach later played at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. The Packers' history and influence pervades the region where he grew up immersed in football.
Not surprisingly, Kolstad sees football as a tough game played by tough people.
"Frankly, if a kid isn't mentally and physically tough, he probably isn't going to get on the field for us," Kolstad said.
He describes Cary's linebacker corps as tough. "Not necessarily the best athletes, but tough kids who play physical football," Kolstad said. "You've got to love football in order to play it well."
