Marine Corp (USMC) Gunnery Sergeant Daniel Trower and his brother, John attended Pro Bowl practices, the “Players Welcome Party”, and the Pro Bowl itself in Hawaii two weeks ago. They also had the opportunity to talk with Ben and have their photo taken with him.

From GySgt. Trower’s email:

“We met Ben at the ‘Players Welcome Party’ for the 2012 Pro Bowl at their hotel.

I went up and introduced myself, told him I was in the Marine Corps, I gave him a coin and he was very cool. He is a great person and took the time out to talk to us. Very professional guy!!”
