Bobby Benton is going to Grove City College to play Division III football.

An overwhelming sense of home and excitement led senior Bobby Benton to choose to play football with the Division III Grove City Wolverines for the next four years.

“To me, it is more than being able to say I went D2 or D1. Grove City is a great place to get an education because of their fantastic resources and alumni network. The coaching staff was probably the biggest draw,” Benton said.

Benton began playing football in his freshman year of high school. What began as trying something new led to a new passion that would drive the following years of his life.

“Football is the ultimate team sport. It takes 11 guys every play to make a game work. Being able to go out there and fight for a win next to the guys you love is what I love most about the game,” Benton said.

Throughout this process, the support from his family has been constant, he said, allowing him to continue to grow and navigate his life.

“My biggest inspiration is my family: my Pap, Dad, and Mom especially. They have all been there for me through everything and I couldn’t have asked for a better support system through this whole process,” Benton said.

Baldwin has brought many opportunities and success for Benton both on and off of the field. In closing this chapter of his life, he is looking forward to starting a new one.

“My biggest emotion going into this is excitement. I am excited to get back on the field, I am excited to get back to watching film, to be a part of this new family, and to go win championships with my teammates at Grove City,” Benton said. “Football has brought me a second family and I am really excited to join this one and grow with them over the next four years.
