A Role Model for El Hogar Students
Work hard and you will achieve your dreams. Eduardo Bennett has worked throughout his life to rise above the circumstances that marked his early years to achieve soccer stardom. He was born in 1968 on the north coast of Honduras in the port town of La Ceiba. In 1983 at age 15, he came to El Hogar – a place that has been his second home ever since – and graduated in 1987. Like many of the other children who come to El Hogar, Eduardo found a safe and nurturing environment that allowed him to learn and grow. These lessons gave him the skills and background that he would use outside of the walls of El Hogar.
As Eduardo began his soccer career, he also worked at El Hogar from 1988 – 1989. From that point on, his career in soccer allowed him to play in Honduras, Mexico, Argentina and Chile. He was also a member of the Honduran National Team from 1991 – 2000.
In 2010, Eduardo retired from playing professional soccer to pursue opportunities in team management and as a soccer analyst in radio and television.
