Rick Lindsten, head coach of Quabbin boys’ regional soccer team, retires

Barr – “This quote from John Wooden:” A good coach can change the game. A great coach can change a life. That was the first thing I thought of when I heard Rick Lindstein announced that he is retiring as Quabbin boys football coach,” Jamie (Szafarowicz) Quabbin girls’ regional football coach.

Lindsten informed Panthers athletic director Mark Mayville late last month of his decision to retire as boys’ football coach, a position he has held since 2011. This fall, for the first time in 35 years, Lindsten will no longer coach football in some capacity.

“I’ve been thinking about it for the past couple of years. I’ve been coaching football for 34 years in a row; I started when I was 29,” said the 64-year-old Lindsten. “It’s been a long time and it’s been fun. For the past 11 years, I have also been a girls’ golf instructor at Quabbin.
