For Benson, return to Edward Little is about giving back

... "It was time for a change, one," Benson said. "Second, when I saw that Dan was planning to retire, I thought I can work two minutes from my house and be in a community that I've been in since 1993."

"I know a majority of their coaches there already," he added. "It's going to have different feel, obviously, but it's not one that I am going into where I'm not familiar with anything. That's a good thing."

Since graduating from the University of Maine at Farmington in 1979, Benson, 60, has spent 38 years in education. For the last 27 years, he has been an athletic director, with stops at Lisbon and Gray-New Gloucester before his first stint at Edward Little.

In Benson's 14 years, the Vikings have won three state championships — baseball in 2005 and 2010 and and girls' skiing in 2013. But he is most proud of the 13 MPA sportsmanship awards and two KVAC sportsmanship awards presented to Oxford Hills' teams, "so I know we're doing the right things," he said.
