Ben 10 in 20 Seconds

The vociferous Michaelhouse band of supporters Aitkens Astro side have a song/chant about schoolmate “Ben 10”. The grade 11 Michaelhouse hockey player Ben Rebeck wears the number 10 on his shirt and can play just about any role. Schoolboys are good with nickames. The animated TV hero Ben 10 is Ben Tennyson, a 10-year-old boy whose magical device can turn him into 10 different heroes. The Ben 10, playing striker for silver medalists KZN Inland 18A during the recent iWYZE Hockey Nationals, was in fine fettle both in field play and and with his deadly penalty corner drag-flicks/penalty strokes. His prowess was rewarded with selection for the SA U17 High Performance squad. So who is “our” Ben 10 when he’s off the hockey pitch.
