After over 18 years with Highland High School and its football program, head coach Brody Benson has resigned, effective immediately. 

His last football season came to a close after a close 33-28 loss to Spanish Fork on Oct. 23, but no one believed this would be his last with the Rams. Benson emailed the Highland staff on the morning of Tuesday, Jan. 26 sending his best wishes to his many coworkers in a short paragraph.

“Thank you for the time you have spent in your dedication to Highland Football,” Benson wrote. “As I leave Highland, I will take many great memories.”

Benson has taken the head coach position at Woods Cross High School, where he will continue his passion of working with young student-athletes.

Benson has been the head coach at Highland since the 2006 football season. In his time, Benson became the winningest coach in school history, including a state championship in 2010.
