In college Coach Benjamin captained the Oswego State Great Lakers to two NY State SUNYAC Championship contests, the college’s first bid to the ECAC tournament, and was the first player named to the NSCAA Academic All American team. He has a long history of coaching on all levels and holds NSCAA national and advanced national coaching diplomas. He has been the Region 21 Coach of the year six times and in 2010 was named the District Coach of the Year.

Since, Coach Benjamin’s time at BHCC the men’s soccer program has grown to be among the top team in the country. They have consistently finished ranked in the top 10 NJCAA in the last five years and in the last two years have been ranked in the NSCAA’s top twenty Junior College teams.

In 2012 the team posted its best finish ever with an impressive 19-3-1 overall record and was undefeated in league play. The team won the MCCAC state tournament and the NJCAA Region 21 tournament earning a second bid to the national championship tournament. This year the team won the first round and competed in its first national final four (semifinals). The team is currently ranked sixth in the NSCAA national poll, and fifth in the NJCAA poll. Overall the team has won six MCCAC state titles, competed in seven NJCAA Region 21 finals, won two regional titles (2010, 2012), played twice in the national tournament in the last three years, and has named five All Americans since 2009. In the past two years the team has posted just one loss in conference play.
