Susquehanna Twp. Alumni and former Citadel Quarterback Ben Dupree is easily one of the most electrifying athletes to ever play in the state of Pennsylvania.
The 5’9 190LB Dupree has always played with a “No Fear” mindset. In High School he was named AAA player of the year and was a First Team All-State selection for Football and was also one of the states most feared point guards leading Susquehanna to a State Championship appearance in 2008.
After High School Dupree went on to play collegiate football at The Citadel in South Carolina. In his senior season Dupree threw for 578 yards, ran for over 1,000+ yards and 18 touchdowns, the most in the Southern Conference and the second-most in a season in Citadel history. Dupree has faced some of the toughest competition in the world. Whether he was playing against Clemson at Death Valley or running the triple option against South Carolina and Jadeveon Clowney, Dupree has proven that he can play against the best of the best.
After College Dupree played Professional Football in Japan for 2 years where he made the position change from Quarterback to running back and had instance success. In his second season Dupree dominated and led “Panasonic” to a League Championship before suffering a season ending injury.
That brings us to where we are now. Dupree at just 25 years old is in the best shape of his life and is more focused than he’s ever been. One thing for sure is that Dupree can still play and any team who gives him a shot won’t be disappointed. We are looking forward to seeing where Dupree goes next!
