DL Benjamin keeps it simple, brings the heat

Lining up against the offensive line, Yshad Shane Benjamin makes his pay by using his size to create a human wall against the oncoming tide of offensive-minded players.

While Benjamin may be shoring up the defensive line, he has a deep appreciation for all aspects of the game. “I love football because all the positions are important and football is a sport where team spirit is the most present. (The team is) like a second family,” he said.

But, when it boils down to it, he probably wouldn’t change his position. “I love my position a lot because my objective is simple and really aggressive,” he said.

When thinking about the future, Benjamin has his sights set on playing in the United States. He won’t simply go to any school that comes knocking on his door, however. He said that if a school really wants him, the head coach has to speak to him and show a lot of interest in him. “Otherwise, I don’t see a reason to go to their college,” he added. He currently plays with Les Centurions Polyvalente Deux-Montagnes.

Having played for six years, standing at 6’3, 295lbs, Benjamin recorded 21 tackles last season. He said he thinks the key to his success is his love for working hard, especially at the gym, and him size. With the new season on the horizon, he said he wants to record at least five sacks.
