Championship Rings Returned to Former Baylor Player

Keller Police have recovered six championship rings stolen from a high school football coach.

Roger Benefield, a semi-retired volunteer coach at Keller High School, had his rings stolen on Tuesday afternoon.

Benefield was at a QuikTrip on Davis Boulevard and Bear Creek Parkway when a man approached him, asking for spare change.

Benefield gave the man some cash and went inside the gas station to buy a drink. He returned to his truck to find all six of his rings were gone.

Police did not immediately announce further details of how the rings were recovered.

The rings included a 1974 Baylor University conference championship, which he earned as a player, and two state championship rings as a football coach at Grapevine High School.

Former Baylor offensive lineman Roger Benefield has his football rings back after they were stolen from his truck Wednesday.
