WATCH PAUL’S 10th PSC HIGHLIGHT VIDEO

 I am writing on behalf of Paul Benitez, whom I have coached and taught this past summer. In that time I have come to know Paul very well as both a student and an athlete. I am pleased to say that he brings the same level of effort and dedication to activities both on and off the field. As an athlete, Paul is focused and determined, often practicing 10+ hours a week on his own time just to stay in peak physical shape. Paul is a great listener, immediately applies learned lessons, and plays hard while in practice as well as during a game. However, he still has a sense of friendliness and fair play, often treating people courteously even when teammates start to get rough or the opposing team begins to foul. Paul’s healthy perspective and cheerful demeanor have made him a favorite on the team with both Coaches and teammates alike, since joining the organization.

 Unlike some athletes I have met, Paul puts the same amount of hard work into his studies as he  does into the game. He has kept a 3.7 GPA while also participating frequently in Baseball. I’ve rarely had the pleasure to teach such a promising and gifted student. I think you will find you agree within just a few moments of meeting Paul.

Paul has partnered with Israel Roque for Home Runs that Help

Israel was born with a rare tumor in his left eye. The cancer is called Retinoblastoma. He had treatment for the first 4 years of his life, then everything cleared up for 3 years. Now the tumors have started coming back. He is 8 years old and recently had a new tumor. His parents made a tough decision which had resulted in him losing his left eye. He is going to start chemo/ radiation again. I’m telling you about Israel Roque because he will be the angel that I’ll be supporting throughout his journey. He’s an amazing, energetic, positive kid to be around. I am humbled to be partnering up with him.

PLEASE HELP http://gofundme.com/m75228hs

Paul has collected $12,000 for Israel.
