Bennett played halfback and several other positions while playing at Ensley High School in Birmingham, Alabama. Bennett was an excellent basketball and baseball player during his high school career. Bennett was an all-state performer, senior year, while amassing over 1000 yards while carrying the ball 101 times. Bennett was nicknamed "Biscuit" due to his tan complexion, while it was originally intended to act as a racial slur, Bennett decided to embrace the term and thus became a role model and activist for African Americans everywhere.show more
