    BHSU FB: Benne Named Rapid City College Male Athlete of the Year

    RAPID CITY, S.D. - Recent Black Hills State University graduate and football player Cody Benne was named the College Male Athlete of the Year Monday at the 45th Annual Rapid City Sports Hall of Fame and Recognition Banquet.

    Benne, a graduate of Rapid City Stevens High School, earned the honor from the Rapid City Sports Officials after he was named Second Team All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference this past season. The defensive lineman tallied 76 tackles in 11 games as the Yellow Jackets went an NCAA-era best 7-4 in 2016. He also tallied a pair of interceptions on the season.

    Over his four-year career, Benne played in all 44 possible games tallying 226 career tackles.

    Black Hills State has a history of receiving Athletes of the Year awards from the Rapid City Sports Officials with the last being Chelsey Biegler following the 2014-15 women's basketball season.
