Benditson began playing soccer when he was five, playing club soccer for Real SoCal, and for both Oak Park High School and Milken Community High School. He played two years of college soccer at the University of Portland, and then transferred to Cal State Northridge for the 2003 and 2004 seasons. Benditson was named his team's defensive MVP in his second and last year at Northridge.
Benditson was drafted in the first round (10th overall) of the 2005 MLS Supplemental Draft by Los Angeles Galaxy. He spent most of the 2005 season with the Galaxy's reserve team, making his first team debut when he replaced an injured Chris Albright in a 0-0 home draw against the Columbus Crew on May 26, 2005. He missed the second half of the 2005 season through injury, and underwent surgery in Munich, Germany to repair a sports hernia in April 2006. He was waived by Galaxy on August 8, 2006.
He joined the San Fernando Valley Quakes of the USL Premier Development League for the 2008 season, but did not feature in any games due to persistent injury, and left the team prior to the end of the season.
