RIVERSIDE — Carroll High School has announced Ben Rulli as the school’s new head football coach beginning the fall of 2014. Rulli was selected from a pool of 48 candidates from across the country.
Rulli has spent the last five seasons as the head football coach at Proctor Academy, in Andover, N.H. During his tenure at Proctor, Rulli compiled a record of 30-10. His 2012 team finished the regular season undefeated, capturing the 2012 Evergreen League title and was runner-up in the New England Prep School Athletic Conference.
A graduate of Carroll in 2003, Rulli helped lead two Patriot teams to the state playoffs as a member of the offensive line. During those seasons, Rulli also served as the team’s kicker and punter, earning All-State honors as a punter during his senior season. Rulli is a graduate of John Carroll University, where he was a three year letter winner and played center for the Blue Streaks. In his senior season, he was named to the All-Ohio Athletic Conference team.
“We are pleased to welcome Ben Rulli back to our athletic program. He has been successful at many levels of the game and is the right man to guide the Patriot football program in the winning tradition that we expect at Carroll High School,” said Patriots Athletic Director Scott Molfenter in a statement.
“Ben Rulli is a proven leader whose philosophy about football and character development is right in line with the mission of Carroll High School,” Carroll Principal Matt Sableski added.
