APB, Where are they now? Bill Benbow

Well, thanks to some tips from readers The Varsity Club discovered that the subject of its most recent All Points Bulletin – former Greater Johnstown quarterback Brian Mangiafico – is living in the Baltimore area where he is a teacher.

As always, thanks for the heads up.

As The Varsity Club continues its quest to track down former area standouts, we shift our focus to Bedford County, where we're looking for former Bedford High standout Bill Benbow.

A 1994 PIAA champion in the 100-meter dash for the Bisons, Benbow racked up some eye-popping numbers as a multi-purpose running back in the early 1990s. In three years of varsity basketball, Benbow scored 712 points.

His biggest impact came in football, where Benbow shared 1993 Tribune-Democrat Offensive Player of the Year honors with Bishop McCort's Artrell Hawkins. Benbow's performance at Westmont Hilltop during his senior year still echoes through the Bedford Valley.

Benbow played briefly at Edinboro University but reportedly had offers from several Division I programs.

Anyone knowing of Benbow's whereabouts is urged to contact The Varsity Club,
