Unfortunately, we’ve learned that Benson will not be able field a football team this year due to low turnout. The last 5-6 years had seen positive momentum build within the program due to the hard work of many, but after losing nearly 50% of their 2018 roster to graduation, they were unable to meet the minimum threshold to safely field a team this fall.
Despite this bump in the road, Benson Athletics have a bright future thanks to the dedication and effort of the many coaches and student athletes that comprise it. We’d like to thank Principal Wilson, Athletic Director Archer, Coach Gann and his entire staff for all of their hard work.
The best way that we alumni can help support the program at this point is to support Benson’s new booster program, Benson TechBoosters:
- Make a one-time or recurring donation via their website.
- Attend their upcoming event at Taborspace on September 21. This 21 and over event is sponsored by Lagunitas Brewing, Natian Brewery, Brunch Box and Portland Style Cheesecake Company. Tickets are $20 online or $25 at the door.
