Ben grew up in a small rural town in North Central Kansas. With both parents being teachers and his father being a high school PE teacher and coach, things were always competitive. Having two older brothers who were involved in athletics from an early age, it was a natural fit for him to want to be involved in sports & fitness as a lifelong career. Ben played football, basketball, & ran track in high school. After graduating from Fort Hays State University with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education in 2002, he began teaching Elementary Physical Education in the Blue Valley School District where he has been the past 12 years.
