PHOTO OF THE WEEK
April 25, 2015: Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at MU - Big Ben poses with fan Diane Daily after the ceremonial opening of the Dauch Indoor Facility and Ben Roethlisberger Field.
"It was such an awesome day! Getting to meet Ben was more of a thrill than I can express. He was so nice to everyone and didn't seem to mind so many wanting a picture and autograph. He even signed my Terrible Towel. Getting to attend a Steeler game at Heinz Field is on my bucket list but of that doesn't happen, I've experienced the next best thing, meeting Ben. Being part of his website has made my day!!" -- Diane

Book - The C.H.I.L.D. Game Plan
Written By: Bruce A. Tollner, Rep 1 Sports
Foreword by: Stephen R. Covey, #1 Bestselling Author of "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People"
Ben on the book: "As a quarterback, I have played on some championship teams—and I have experienced some painful losses. Regardless of the outcome of any one game, my dad has been there to cheer me on. Whether I throw a winning touchdown pass or an interception, I know my dad is there to say, 'Good job, Son, I am proud of you!' My parents have had a major influence on the way I live life, as well as the way I play football. Because of their influence, and that of my coaches and others, I am blessed to be able to live out a childhood dream to play professional football. The C.H.I.L.D. Game Plan can help you to help your child live out their childhood dreams. Read this book, and put together a winning game plan for your child."— Ben Roethlisberger, two-time Super Bowl Champion Quarterback, Pittsburgh Steelers
