Benjamin, 23, is the athletic trainer at Liberty Christian Academy in Lynchburg. Ben and and his wife, Autum, are expecting a son in May 2008. Christopher, Benjamin's twin brother, has been playing ball on heaven's courts since fall of 2001.

Ellen is partial to good coffee, good friends, reading, and fishing. She dreams of all four someday at a fishing cabin on the North Platte River in Wyoming or on the Gulkana River in the interior of Alaska.
