Chasing The Dream

As children all every little hooper wanted was to go to the league. As we grow older we realize that it takes a TON of hardwork, and a lifetime of dedication to even make it to the collegiate level. Most players find out in high school if they really are willing to put that time, and work in to truly achieve that goal. Kyle Benton is one of token few who have the luxury to continue at the next level, and he believes he can continue on to making basketball a career. Benton is a 6'7 230lb Forward with nice footwork, and is a bully down low! He attended Gahr high school for 3yrs then transferred to St. Anthony's where he averaged 16pts, and 12rebs, andthe Saints went 7-1 in league, 17-9 overall, and made it to the quarter finals of CIF playoffs. After high school Benton went on to play at Portland State, but left after his freshmen year. His Sophomore year he played at San Bernadino Valley Community College where he averaged 12.9pts, 7rebs, and shot 54.8% from the field! Benton was one, and done at CC taking his talents to North Carolina Central University where he instantly connected with head coach Levelle Moton. In his Jr season he averaged 6pts, and lead the team in rebounds with 6.5 boards a game! You can expect a strong Senior season from Benton next year with 4 seniors leaving he will have a bigger role within the team, and he's definitely ready! Benton is still focused on the goal of professional basketball, but he's not putting all his eggs in one basket as he is currently majoring in Psychology. Next season will be here in no time!
