"I have been working out every morning at school,' Benson told Burnt Orange Beat last week. Additionally, the Cedar Hill Longhorns have been working out to prepare for the state 7 on 7 tournament in July.
Benson said last Friday, "We have not qualified yet for the state tournament, but we have a couple more tournaments to qualify. We have been practicing but are just now starting to play in tournaments."
The next day, Benson and his Cedar Hill teammates qualified for the state tournament at the Mesquite tournament. Cedar Hill is also going to play at Arlington Bowie on June 27 to further prepare for the state tournament in July.
In addition to his daily morning workouts and his seven on seven practices, Benson squeezed in a trip down to Austin to work out with many of his future Texas Longhorn commitments and his future position coach.
Cedar Hill also has several other prospects that are committed to play in the Big 12 in running back Ben Molina (Texas A&M) and offensive guard Adam Shead (Oklahoma). Junior-to-be quarterback Driphus Jackson, defensive end Xavier Warren, and wide receiver Lovett Gibson will also be recruited highly.
