Myrtle Beach prospect Spencer Benton is helping his team at several positions this year.

"The season is going good for me so far," he said. "I haven't gotten to many opportunities. I am 2-4 so far. I have hit one of 39 and one of 37. I missed a 48-yard field goal Friday night wide right by about a foot. We have blown out a lot of people so the coach hasn't wanted to kick field goals to run up the score.

"Last game I had one punt that had a 5.1 second hang time. It was 48 or 50 yards. Right now I am averaging about 39 yards per punt."

The 6-3, 190 pound prospect is playing several positions for Myrtle Beach.

"I have been playing receiver also. I had five receptions last week," said Benton. "We have some region games coming up now, so things will get harder. I may get more opportunities."

Benton spent the weekend riding the waves and was surprised the Tigers lost to the Jackets.

"That was a hard game Saturday. I was at a surf contest in Myrtle Beach so I didn't get to watch it. The waves were great," said Benton.

Benton will be back in Death Valley this weekend to watch his future teammates.

"I will be there again this weekend for Virginia Tech. It should be a big game," said Benton.

4-star teammate Bruce Taylor will make the trip to Death Valley this weekend with Spencer.

"Bruce Taylor will be coming with me Saturday. I talk to him every day about coming to Clemson. We kind of laugh about it now. He likes Clemson. We went up together to the Clemson game at State. He is solid with his commitment to Virginia Tech however," said Benton.
