A look back at football seasons from years past

During the months of September and October we’ll be running weekly results of Benson and KMS High School football from years gone by.  It’s not the same as an actual season, but it will help provide a little football for BHS and KMS football fans to help them get by the fall season, while also giving people a chance to revisit the names of Saints and Braves who have played for the two schools in the past.

And so, enjoy a little football from the past.  We’ll try to mix up the years each week so that most of the graduating classes at Benson and KMS have their chance in the spotlight.  We’ll also include the final record for each season...
