No risk, no reward!

Ben makes a young boy’s dream come true!

In a video posted to Twitter, Cindy Koehler asks her son, Caleb, if he could meet one person in the world, who would it be?



Without hesitation, Caleb says, “Ben Roethlisberger.” She asks Caleb what he would do if he got the chance to hang out with Big Ben and catch a pass from him.

“I would probably hyperventilate and pass out,” Caleb responds.

Cindy told him she would tweet it out to Ben.

“Thank you, do it. No risk, no reward.” Caleb said with a shrug and a giggle.

Well, the video spread quickly, and before you know it, Ben responded with a video himself.


“Hi Caleb. I saw the tweet that your mom put out and I thought it was pretty cool. You’re no risk, no reward. I really like that so I thought maybe I’d try to reward you and invite you personally to my football camp on June 17th. I think you’d have a lot of fun, and maybe I’ll be able to throw you a pass and you’ll be able to catch it and show everybody what kind of skills you have.”



As you might imagine, Caleb was pretty excited to receive the message.

Later, Caleb sent a follow-up video to thank Big Ben for making his dream come true.



“It’s an honor to just see your video and have my name in it. Thank you so much for inviting me to your football camp. I can’t wait to come. I’ve loved football for a very long time and I can’t wait to meet you in person. This is seriously a dream come true, thank you so much!”

It’s safe to say that Caleb wis the most popular student in his school this week…and maybe for the rest of the year!


See you in June, Caleb!!
