Let's take a minute to recognize Mr. Benson’s spectacular season! If you didn't know already, Mr. Benson is the head coach of Clear Creek Amana boy's soccer team and currently, they are 12-3. Although this season was special to him and his team as well. Benson’s players are very supportive of him and his coaching ability to keep the team pushing forward!
“Benson is hands down the best coach I’ve ever had. He is a very smart coach and he pushes us to do better every single day,” said senior Rahabot Habte.
Earlier in the season on May 14, was the CCA vs Solon boys soccer game. This game wasn't just any other soccer game. This win gave Coach Benson his 100th game win against Solon with a PK score of 1-0!
A penalty kick, also known as a “PK” is when a play in soccer is restarted in which a single player on the offensive team takes a single shot at the opponent's goal. A penalty kick is taken at 12 yards (11m) away from the goal. Although while you’re taking your shot, the opposing team has one defendant who will try to block your shot.
With that being said Benson is very proud of his team and their devotion to the sport.
“Seeing players improve as players, learn to love the game and their team,” said Coach Benson.
This 2019 season was one to remember. So many things were accomplished between the players physically and mentally working and pushing forward. Next year Clear Creek Amana boy’s soccer will keep trying to excel past this year's achievements with many players from the freshman, sophomore and junior classes moving up.
“I will remember this season fondly as the bounce back from a tough 2018. Wins against traditional rivals Williamsburg, Solon, and Benton were highlights for sure,” said Benson.

He seems likes an airheaded, goofy, kind, professional quarterback. Always smiling, always laughing, and always showing opponents respect on the field, but in reality, Andrew Luck is more than just a smile, more than a goofball, more than a kind guy.
