    Benedict of Sandy Creek places second at state wrestling tournament

    Joe Benedict of Sandy Creek has been beaten by only three wrestlers a total of five times over the past two seasons in the 195-pound weight class.
    Absolutely dominant coming out of Section III, Benedict won by 8-0 decision, pin (2:11) and pin :)21) in his first three matches of the NYSPHSAA Division II championships at the Times Union Center in Albany on Feb. 24.

    For all of his success on the mats, Benedict is better known as a terror on the football field. As a running back for the Comets, Benedict won the Times All-North MVP after setting the New York State single-game rushing record with 584 rushing yards against Immaculate Heart Central in October.

    Benedict wrestles because he enjoys it, first and foremost. But when his senior season comes back around, Benedict has all the motivation he could ever want.

    “Football was my priority,” Benedict said. “After losing the state title, I’m kind of making wrestling my priority now. I really want to win that.”

    We don't need a FB. waste of a roster spot and schollie. Like this kid as a LB, only after he gets a legit look at RB.

    Phenomenal kid, great success. Wish him all the best in the world... not a Syracuse guy... But I think he could potentially develop at a level very close to that... Might contribute on the FCS Level at some point. It's tough to gauge, but, the fact that he wrestles (and well) is a huge bonus.

    Again, wish him all the best, tremendous accomplishments.

    If he went on in football, what level do you think he could compete at? He seems to be first and foremost an athlete, but he may not be looking to go on to college. I've seen no articles that mention him nor have I found him in any recruiting databases. Thoughts?

    Feel like these are the types of kids who fit in for scholarships #80-85 in a perfect world. I realize we don't live in one, but you'd want those types to be two year developmental guys who could contribute on special teams through their redshirt sophomore year, see action on the field as a junior in situations then possibly push for starting time as a senior.

    Can he play lacrosse? His combination of size, speed and strength would make him a great prospect.

    He will end up at a UMass or RI maybe a Temple. He is that type of player. It is because of the talent he plays against that he won't get the hard look.

    New Hampshire has a very strong program from what I understand. Take a lot of these kinds of kids on scholarship. Their running back from the last few seasons signed with the Colts as an UDFA. Was a tremendous high school lacrosse player on Long Island.
