Cedric Benson

Cedric Benson grew up in Midland Texas where, from a young age, he learned the importance of family, team work and working hard. He has applied these virtues to all aspects of his life and especially to his first love – football.

Cedric was the featured player for his high school team and elevated the Midland Lee Rebels to the only three State Championships in the school’s history. He was the top rated high school player in America and chose to attend The University of Texas to further his football career. During his tenure as a Longhorn, he was recognized as the top Running Back in the Country and received several National Awards. Prior to Cedric, the University of Texas had only recorded four ten win seasons Since the late 70s while Cedric was the featured Running Back, the team won at least 10 games every year. His ability to elevate the teams he played with caught the eye of many in the National Football League and in 2005 the Chicago Bears drafted him number four overall.

Now retired from the National Football League, Cedric brings his core virtues to his new career in Mortgage Lending. His drive and determination to be the best is unchanged and he applies that mindset to his new team at SecurityNational Mortgage Company. SecurityNational knows that teamwork insures the success of mortgage transactions and has surrounded Cedric with highly seasoned professionals to support his efforts. Cedric chose to join SecurityNational based on the strength of the Company and the caring approach applied both internally and externally. Being part of a relationship driven organization fits perfectly with Cedric’s approach to business and his new team of champions is here to help you achieve your dreams.
