Friends of Jaclyn Benny would become a staple around the team, joining them for lunch in the cafeteria, pumpkin carving, game nights, and other activities. Benny lost his battle with cancer on 9/8/10, and in a fitting tribute, a number of parents and friends of the program made donations in the amount of $98.10 in honor of that date. You can see some video footage of Benny interacting with the team here: Benny's Story with LFC Football The annual mini-golf tournament that the Foresters participate in is now called the Benny Watters Memorial Cup, and their is a trophy to honor his memory.
