Hoping to just help the team out with dual/team points…,” the Teen Mom OG star wrote on Instagram. “it actually turned into him qualifying for the #TSSAA individual state tournament and then coming up one match short of placing… Finishing his ‘high school’ season with a 20-12 record, as an 8th Grader!”
Maci Bookout is ‘so proud’ of Bentley

In her Instagram post, Bookout McKinney shared what Bentley thought of his accomplishments and how proud she is of her son.
“I asked Bentley what his favorite moment of his very long season was, and without question he said, ‘when we won the #TSSAA Dual State Championship!’” Bookout McKinney wrote.
She concluded the post with, “I’m so proud of you @bentleycedwards Keep chasing your dreams and staying true to you.”
Maci Bookout’s son Bentley is used to being on TV
Over the years, 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom fans have watched Bentley grow from a young infant to a confident and grounded teenager through various MTV series.
Speaking with People Magazine in 2022, Bookout McKinney shared that Bentley is quite accustomed to appearing on TV.
“Bentley, he’s the oldest Teen Mom Kid. He was born on TV, so it’s kind of normal for him,” the reality star said.
Bookout McKinney also acknowledged that her children and MTV are proactive about setting filming boundaries.
“As he’s gotten older, obviously sharing things that are personal to him, is always been under the same set of boundaries. If he doesn’t want to film — or Jade or Maverick — then they don’t film. If they don’t want even to put a microphone on, they don’t put a microphone on,” she said.
Bookout McKinney continued, “There’s always a conversation that I have with them before we film it to see if they’re okay with it. And then again, with a producer too, to find out ‘What’s off limits? What are you good with if you’re good with, if anything at all?’”
