Frank Ponce

Frank Ponce grew up in Cuba, and came to Charlotte when he was 10 years old. He excelled at football, basketball and track at Garinger High School in Charlotte, and when he signed a contract to teach at Myers Park HS he learned that coaching the boys soccer team was part of the deal. His first team made the state final four. He coached the boys team from 1974-1980 and 1991-98, and the girls team from 1985-98. His overall coaching record was 239-55-20. He was named N.C. state coach of the Year for both boys and girls soccer by the N.C. Soccer Coaches Association. He died in 1998 and was inducted into the N.C. Soccer Hall of Fame posthumously.
