Between 89 and 2000 I had children at LOLHS. Even though none of them were football players we attended Friday night football, home and away games. I don't ever remember anyone commenting negatively on the coaching or the behavior of the coaching staff. That says volumes about John Benedetto. He was an example of sportsmanship and a gentleman to parents and kids. Thank you, Mr. Benedetto, for coming into our lives.

MR B COACH BEST FRIENDS FOREVER
April 23, 2013
All my memories of Coach B are positive ones, not one of them is negative. From a scrawny 7th grader playing for him at Sanders Elementary, to skinny senior at LOLHS. He taught me more than just how to catch a football. He taught me how to comport myself as as a young man, although I didn't know it then.

My heart goes out to Vanie, Gio, and the family. Grace, peace, and blessing to you in this time of great loss.

John was the Rock of Land O' Lakes. I remember when Land O' Lakes High School opened in 70's. The Friday night football games was the place to be. You would see John on the sideline pacing up and down. I remember when my sister and my brother was painting the goal post yellow they got into a paint fight. Coach B just stood there and laughed at them and shook his head. His going to be missed by everyone. When you think of Land O' Lakes you think of John Benedetto. Our prayers and thoughts are with his family and friends. Eddie, Vicky, Terri and Carolyn Lee

My heart goes out to the whole Benedetto Family. As everyone has said, "He was a LEGEND in Land O' Lakes/teacher and COACH!!" I was stunned when my friend told me the horrible news. May God watch over John and his family at this difficult time. May he rest in peace & God bless his soul.

We lost a great man, teacher and coach who loved kids. He taught them well and many have attained great success in life. Some of them are doctors, lawyers, teachers, coaches, business executives who all remember "Coach" with great fondness. Not many have had such an impact on the lives of others. I hope he knew just how much he was respected and loved by those who knew him and worked with him throughout the years. Rest in Peace John we will miss you. Sympathy and prayers go out to the family.
