“That was the biggest thing for me. It’s an honor to go into the Hall of Fame, but to go in with Coach Hoeppner kind of made me tear up a bit and gave me goose bumps. To me that means more than going in myself. It will be an emotional day.” — Ben, on being inducted with his football coach and friend, Terry Hoeppner.
From the Official Website of the Miami Redhawks:
As Miami prepares to honor six outstanding individuals with their induction into the Miami University Athletics Hall of Fame, the date for the event and induction details have been finalized.
To be inducted into the 44th Hall of Fame Class on Saturday, Feb. 9th are Dale Cohen ’94 (women’s tennis), Terry Hoeppner (football coach), P.L. (Pete) Miller ’71 (men’s track and field), Ben Roethlisberger ’12 (football), Karin Sherr ’99 (synchronized skating) and Kyle Voska ’98 (golf).
Ben holds every major passing record in Miami history. Passing for more than 200 yards in all 14 games during the 2003 season, he also owns NCAA records for most games in a season gaining 200 or more passing yards and consecutive games with at least 200 passing yards. A Third-Team Associated Press All-American in 2003 and Freshman All-American in 2001, he was twice named Miami’s Male Co-Athlete of the Year (2000-01 and 2003-04) while being named MAC Freshman of the Year (2001), and MAC Offensive Player of the Year (2003).
Ben was a three-time All-MAC selection, earning first-team honors in 2003 and second-team recognition in 2001 and 2002. A three-year letter winner, he forewent his final season of eligibility to enter the 2004 NFL Draft. Miami retired his jersey No. 7 in 2007.
The six members of the Hall of Fame Class of 2012-13 will be honored during the mens basketball game versus Akron on Saturday, February 9th.
Later that evening, an induction dinner will be held at the Shriver Center Multipurpose Room at 7 p.m. Tickets for the dinner may be purchased by visiting or calling the Miami Athletics Ticket Office at 513-529-4295 or clicking here.
