The season opener carries a special meaning for Seth Benson

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Seth Benson made a career change decision in December 2017.

An all-state linebacker from Washington High School in Sioux Falls, SD, Benson had been committed to South Dakota State for six months. And then Iowa called.

With the December 2017 signing period just a week away, the Hawkeyes offered the South Dakota Gatorade Player of the Year a scholarship. An offer he accepted.

“It’s fun to look back on,” said Benson, heading into his senior season with the Hawkeyes. “I wouldn’t change it for the world. I am blessed that I had the opportunity and was able to come to Iowa. And I have a long way to go.”
