After attending and excelling in his athletic abilities and skills in football at the Cardinals football camp in Phoenix, Nicholas Bencomo was named the fifth-best receiver out of 150 kids.
Bencomo was invited to attend the IMG Academy football program Academy in Florida, which is for athletes considered to be future NFL prospects.
A fourth-grader at Dorothy Stinson, Bencomo will attend the camp June 4-6.
Bencomo is the son of Mario and Alicia Bencomo-Aranda and is 10 years old.
He received the “Iron Man” award from his Dolphins youth football team last season.
Bencomo also excels in the classroom and has won numerous academic awards, including perfect Terra Nova scores in math.
To help cover the expenses of the trip to Florida, Bencomo is holding fund-raisers. Any support or donations would be greatly appreciated by the Bencomo family.
