And just in case you missed the post in November….

Ben will be the guest speaker at the Blair County Sports Hall of Fame banquet on April 28, 2012.

The event will take place at the Blair County Convention Center in Altoona, PA.

“With it being our 25th anniversary, we thought it would be appropriate to get a blockbuster name,” Blair Hall president Dave Andrews said. “And we have that with Ben Roethlisberger.”

Mr. Andrews continued, “Ben’s agent went to Hines, and he spoke highly of our event,” Andrews said. “It was something that interested Ben’s agent, and Ben accepted right away. He wanted to speak for an organization that honors student athletes and local sports heroes. We invited him to bring his wife as well.”

Set for induction April 28 are former St. Francis basketball player and current Williamsburg coach Don Appleman, former Maryland football player Todd Benson, former minor league baseball player Harold “Bucky” Bush, former Duquesne University and WNBA player Candace Futrell, former Villanova basketball player Allen Griffith and Tyrone Area High School’s PIAA championship football team of 1999.

Tickets are $85 each or $850 for tables of 10. Corporate packages, which include 10 tickets to Saturday night’s banquet, 10 tickets to Friday night’s inductees reception and a photo with Ben, are also available.
