“We played in a hurricane. I remember it being fast. I don’t think I read any defense all day. I just reacted to everything. It was pretty much a blur to me.” — Ben.
From Adam Stites at JagsWire via USA Today:
Jacksonville Jaguars legend Tony Boselli and a yet-to-be-named former Jaguars player will team up on the golf course on Oct. 7 against a pair of former Pittsburgh Steelers led by Ben Roethlisberger, according to the Florida Times-Union.
Boselli, who became a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August, and his Jaguars teammate will be playing for the charity Blessings in a Backpack. Roethlisberger and his yet-to-be-named Steelers teammate will be playing for Beaches Habitat for Humanity.
The pairs will be a nine-hole scramble and will include additional competitions to decide which team earns the most of the $100,000 in charity money up for grabs.
Roethlisberger retired earlier this year after 18 seasons as the Steelers’ quarterback.

“To say my husband and I are die-hard Roethlisberger fans is an understatement. We have loved him since the day he was drafted and actually got to meet our favorite QB on my husband’s 28th birthday! We have watched every NFL game he’s ever played in and of course we couldn’t miss his last home game! It was one of the best memories I could have ever been a part of!
Recently, I was blessed with winning an autographed jersey and cleats from Big Ben just for subscribing to his new Channel Seven! As sad as I am not to see him on the field this season, I hope he is having the best retirement and enjoying time with his family!
To our all-time favorite player…
THANK YOU 7 🤟🏼” — Taylor Franciscus.
