Coaches Comments: “Ben was a team captain as a Junior. He is a punishing runner. He was our starting Fullback the last two seasons and played quarterback for 1 and 1/2 games last season. He is the leader of our defense. He led the team in tackles the last two seasons. Teams need to account for where he is on defense. He runs well and gets to the edge from his inside LB position. He is being recruited by Delaware, Lehigh, and Penn. Ben is an outstanding student in the classroom and on the football field. He is always in the weight room.”
