One of Ours,
We are truly saddened to hear about the loss of our baseball player, Justin. It was not that long ago that he was playing ball on our fields with much skill and enthusiasm. Certainly, he was a great teammate on every team he ever played on. The Benito family was well known for their support of Justin and for the program, we share their loss.
Today, Justin reminds us how precious life is. We should live it as Justin played baseball, with joy and passion.
God Bless Justin and the Benito Family
