Rich Benitez

Coach Rich works full-time as a project manager supporting the US Air Force and Joint Staffs at the Pentagon. His favorite soccer player is Cristiano Ronaldo because he works hard at practice to keep himself sharp and has a huge competitive drive that is infectious. Rich's favorite thing to cook is a good steak on the grill, while hanging out with friends and family.

When asked about his dream job Rich said, "Believe it or not, it's coaching! I would love to coach at the collegiate level or higher. I enjoy the game of soccer and watching players grow."
