Steve Beninghove, who has spent nearly 20 years coaching football, has resigned after four years as head coach at Mount Hebron High School.
Beninghove, who was saddled each year with an undermanned roster that lacked the talent of the county's top teams, guided the Vikings to a 14-26 record. Last year, Hebron had its best year under Beninghove, finishing third in the county with a 4-3 record, 5-5 overall. This year, the team struggled to a 1-9 finish, including a winless season against the county.
"All the lessons you want to teach and all the things you want todo, you really can't do unless you win," said Beninghove, a 44-year-old math teacher who graduated from Howard High in 1965. He spent twoyears coaching high school football in Mississippi before comingback to Howard County. He coached for a year at Hammond, then spent nine years as an assistant coach at Glenelg, before coming to Hebron in 1988.
