For nearly 20 seasons, Lawrence Benedetto served St. Edward HS of Elgin as its basketball scorekeeper. St. Edward AD, says of Benedetto, "His conscientious work as helped sustain our basketball program. If he were not around, my job would be a lot more difficult." Lawrence has missed very few games whether regular season or tournament. If he did miss a game, he always provided a capable replacement. Many times he even drove players to the away games. For all of this, Lawrence worked his hobby around his job a foreman for Commonwealth Edison.
