Senior Showcase: CAM’s Ben Tibken

(Anita) Ben Tibken is a standout in four sports four the CAM Cougars and he has been for several years. He’s also the centerpiece of our senior showcase in week three of the 2019-20 sports year.

Tibken emerged on the gridiron as a key lineman for some quality CAM football teams, he’s also been a steady contributor in basketball, a state qualifier in golf, and a crucial piece for CAM baseball which made the state tourney in 2017.

So far in the 2019 football season CAM is #1 in 8-Player for rushing yards per game. Tibken is one of three senior road graders for that potent rushing attack. He’s joined by Ethan Fast and Ethan Steffensen on the offensive line.
