You won’t find a finer HS Athletic Trainer in the State than Steve Bennett. Steve was the constant in all that is North Port High School Athletics. Finding anyone at the high school with more concern for the athletes well-being is near impossible.Steve has overseen the well-being of every Student Athlete to date that has graduated from North Port HS. He always made sure the safety and health of our athletes was top priority.
It didn’t matter if it was a jammed finger, dislocated shoulder, or broken bone, Steve always treated the athletes with dignity and respect. His service to the athletes, coaches, athletic department, and North Port High School is unmeasurable and will be greatly missed. It only took me one visit to an award ceremony many years ago to realize how much the Student Athletes loved him. Reading through posts just from today on Facebook by current and former athletes, staff, and parents will take you more than a few minutes. I personally cannot thank him enough for the help and care he gave my boys during their years of playing sports at North Port. We wish Steve the best in his future endeavors and look forward to seeing him across the sidelines at cross-town match ups. Steve, you will be missed! I know for sure his new school doesn’t know how lucky they are!
