Ben Bennett, a native of Sunnyvale, Calif., quarterbacked the Blue Devils from 1980-83 and capped a terrific career with ACC Player of the Year and third team All-America accolades as a senior.  The first player in ACC history to earn both the conference’s Rookie and Player of the Year awards, Bennett graduated as the NCAA’s all-time leading passer with 9,614 yards. 

In a collegiate career that included 47 games played with 46 starting assignments, Bennett completed 820-of-1,375 (.596) pass attempts for 9,614 yards and 55 touchdowns, and he continues to hold or share 21 Duke passing records.  He received ACC Player of the Year honors in both 1982 and 1983.

At the time of his graduation, Bennett held the ACC standards for passing yards, total offensive yards (9,061) and passing touchdowns.  He twice earned first team All-ACC honors (1982-83), represented the Blue Devils in the Blue-Gray Classic, Hula Bowl and Japan Bowl all-star games following his senior campaign and served as an assistant coach at Duke for two seasons (1999-00). 

A sixth round draft choice of the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons, Bennett went on to a Hall of Fame career in the Arena Football League with enshrinement on May 24, 2000.  In addition, he is a member of the upcoming ACC Legends Class of 2011.
