Tolland SAM: Ben Clough

Ben is ranked in the top 20 of his class and has been on the Honor Roll every semester. Last year, Ben was a CCC All-Conference player in baseball, and his freshman year, Tolland won the CCC East Conference championship in baseball. He’s been on the varsity baseball team since his freshman year and the varsity basketball team since his sophomore year.

How Ben prepares for a game: To prepare for a game, I always try to get plenty of sleep the night before and I always make sure I’m locked in and ready to go before game time. On a superstitious level, I always wear my baseball socks to school on game days, and I don’t ever wear my jersey to school. I’ve recently discovered that to be bad luck.

What Ben is most excited about this season: What I’m most excited about for this baseball season is just simply getting the opportunity to play with a group of really great guys around me. I couldn’t ask for a better group to be around, and it makes playing baseball that much more enjoyable.

Ben’s most memorable moment as a high school athlete: My most memorable moment as a high school athlete is definitely winning the CCC East Conference championship my freshman year.

What Ben hopes to accomplish this season: This season, we want to get right back to that top spot in the conference and we’d also like to make a nice run in the playoffs. If we continue to work hard and get better every day, I think these are two very reachable goals.

Ben’s favorite pro or college athlete: I’m a big fan of Kevin Durant from the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Ben’s college plans: Next year I will be attending the Rochester Institute of Technology.
