Player of the Week: EB's Andrew Benson

EAST BRIDGEWATER, Mass. -- The South Shore League should again prove to be one of the state's most tightly contested races this year, and once again East Bridgewater will be in the thick of it, thanks to senior quarterback Andrew Benson.

Benson is our Massachusetts Army National Guard Player of the Week for Week 5 after leading the Vikings to a 39-26 win over Hull. He combined for five touchdowns (4 on the ground, 1 passing) while falling just shy of a 300-yard rushing performance (296 yards) on 17 carries.
