Quotes from Obama Academy coach Pete Vitti: "Ben has been a dedicated player and important piece of our team for four years. He came into his own last year as an All-WPIAL libero. This year he has proven himself to be one of our best all around players as he has blossomed into an effective outside hitter while still providing us with valuable passing and defensive skills. He is our floor captain and a player that our team looks to for cohesion. He is an excellent leader who has taken younger players under his wing helping them to transition into their new varsity roles."
