For 12-straight seasons, coach Dave Benter has led the Brownstown Central High School boys basketball team to a winning record.
He has had a lot of postseason success in his 15 years at the helm, including two trips to the state finals, and he has been recognized for his coaching.
Benter recently found out he was selected for the third time as the Hoosier Basketball Coaches Association District IV Coach of the Year, and he earned the opportunity to coach in the HBCA East-West All-Star Classic on Sunday at Tecumseh High School in Lynnville.
He is going to be out of town, however, so assistant coach Marty Young is stepping in. The District II Coach of Year, Aaron Garrett of Batesville, will coach with Young.
“Obviously, anytime a coach gets voted by other coaches, it is an honor,” Benter said. “It is really a tribute to the kids on the team, because without good players it would be impossible to get any coaching awards.”
