With starting strength you can focus on both the squat and bench and make progress in both. Plus with so much focus on squatting he will build a great base and probably gain some weight. People forget that bench is really a full body exercise.
With respect to dreams preference for sl 5x5 he makes good points and it does produce very consistent gains with more volume than ss. Of course you can just do ss and not gomad but still eat a ton. Rippetoe thinks you should pack on as much muscle and weight as possible and then get rid of any fat gained later.
I imagine the month of July is critical because 2 a days start in early August?
