Artist Jeff Echevarria wanted to share his beautiful tribute to Big Ben:

“When there are doubters, it always fuels the fire a little bit. When people say you can’t do something if you are a competitor, that drives you.” — Ben Roethlisberger.

Thank you #7 for Everything you’ve brought to Pittsburgh! Big Big love to you and your family!
