BREAKING: SM North's Bartlett Steps Down

Head Coach Ben Bartlett resigns from SM North



Ben Bartlett, the 15th Head Coach in Shawnee-Mission North Indians Football history has resigned, per Athletic Director Kent Glaser. 

For our loyal SMSD-North Indians Football viewers, you may recall at the end of the 2013-2014 school year, when Don Simmons abruptly resigned following an 0-9 record in his one and only season. By interim appointment by Retired Athletic Director George Sallas, and then Principal Richard Kramer, the first Indians Football alumni in the history of the program, Ben Bartlett '98 assumed the new role of head Coach. 

During Coach Bartlett's time as a student-athlete for the Indians, his time on the field was led by former Head Coach's Bob Stauffer, and Sam Brown.  

In an unfortunate turn of events, Ben Bartlett took over a program that had lost a team record 19 straight games dating back to week-9 of the 2011 season and carrying over to the 2014 season and more than halfway through his first season. 

Little known to the rest of the Sunflower League, and even within the hallways of SM North, a young Quarterback would soon be appointed to lead the program in Will Schneider. Throughout Ben Bartlett's tenure and in to the 2017 season, Will Schneider's impact was felt. Both on, and off the field and throughout the Sunflower, his legend and leadership built in trust with his offensive line and help from his defense gave the Indian's credibility again that it had not achieved in years. 

Lately, the SM North Indians will be known in this decade of Football for their incredible 2016 season. For the first time since 2003, the team fielded six wins and won in upset fashion two back-to-back playoff games against Olathe North and Lawrence. 

Ben Bartlett's 12 win's rank him 8th all-time in Indians Football history behind Bryan Speery (1958-1960.) Overall, his numbers place him 54th all-time out of 86 past and present Sunflower Coaches, and 31st all-time in SMSD Coaching history. 


Thank you again for all of your great time, work, and dedication to the Indians Football program!
