When asked what he likes best about coaching football, Coach Bennett says he, like most coaches, really likes coaching for Friday nights but the thing he loves most about football is “the ability we have as coaches to develop relationships with our kids.  Nothing can take the place at the end of the day when you are exhausted on the field and have a relationship with a kid knowing he will give you everything he has and you will do the same for him.”  The commitment to his team and football runs deep.
