Benchwarmers. Many people think the life of a benchwarmer is easy. Little do they know, we Pine Riders  do a ton of work as well. You may think carrying 2 water cups is not hard, but until you have been pushed out of the way and bumped, you don’t even know. Being a benchwarmer comes with much responsibility, everything from memorizing handshakes to trying to come up with high-quality celebrations.

Myself, Hazen Erickson, James Erickson, and Dre Jenkins make up this elite group, and we keep it real every week. For instance, every JV game we have a competition: who ever scores the least has to sit on the end of the varsity bench. This gives us an incentive to go off in that JV game.

When fans think of starters, they think these glory hogs do the most work; however, benchwarmers do just as much, if not more work, than they do.

Junior Hazen Erickson said, “I warm up before warmups just to be warm for warmups to warm the bench.”

Dre Jenkins said,” Warming the bench since 02′. I only sit on the throne during the games.”

James Erickson said,” If you think practice is boring, try sitting the bench.”

We may warm the bench, but the season goes on and life goes on. One thing is for sure, the bench never gets lonely with my home boys.
