05:38AM / Monday, December 02, 2019
Winter has -- prematurely -- arrived back home in the Berkshires, but for at least two county alumni, their fall seasons are continuing.   Wake Forest senior Jake Benzinger of Williamstown and Central Florida junior Jake Hescock of Pittsfield each has helped his college football team qualify for a bowl game.   Hescock, a former Taconic High student-athlete who finished his secondary education at Connecticut's Salisbury School, is a junior at UCF.   This fall, the tight end has nine catches for 87 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
