Before Besler enters his 10th season with SKC, he’s taken the time to talk with several of the kids who idolize him, as well as help recognizes people who he considers to be hometown heroes. One of Besler’s recent stops was at Trailridge Middle School, where he helped SKC and Blue Cross Blue Shield honor Trailridge physical education teacher Larry Benson as a Blue KC Sporting Samaritan on Dec. 12.
