EC Football Team to Honor Charlie Benner
RICHMOND, Ind. — The Earlham College football team during the last spring practice every year invites the incoming recruiting class along with any local alumni to watch the workout and tell some stories.

This is a day of fun, football and a lot of food. Charlie Benner, who passed away this past winter, always attended. He always enjoyed meeting the future EC football players, seeing the current and past players every year.

This year, Earlham Head Coach Gerry Keesling has decided to the rename this event "The Charlie Benner Recruiting Weekend."

"I will be making the proclamation at the conclusion of this year's practice and before we eat on Sunday," Keesling said. "Charlie has been one of Earlham's top football fans for the past 40 years and we miss him."
