Sorry to hear about Benny's passing. Benny was a good friend growing up around Clemson. We were in high school together and played many pickup games of football and basketball. Benny was always known as fleet of foot and when choosing teams at school to play football you wanted Benny on your side. It was always better to have Benny running for your team than chasing him down the field. He will surely be missed. God bless the family.
