“Let me just say that Ben’s camp was an absolute delight!! It’s a very well run and organized camp with never a dull moment. Ben is great with the kids! Once again he threw the football to every camper so they could have chance to ‘catch a pass from Big Ben’! Both of my grandson’s caught their passes! YEAH!! Thanks so much to Ben for a wonderful experience for my grandsons!!” – Anita Doddroe, June 19, 2012.

Shout-out to Big Ben fan, Justin Huser!

JustinHusarSoon after appearing in our Lil’ Fans album earlier this week, Justin found himself in the hospital after a serious bout of Chronic Asthma, something he has been dealing with since birth.

The bright-eyed and always busy 2-1/2 year old is back home and doing much better.

“What makes it hard is Justin loves football so much and he reenacts every play,” said his mom Amber. “His love for playing unfortunately exacerbates his asthma. It’s hard to get him to sit still! But, I’m sure this is a small bump in the road and he will overcome and go on to be a Super Star one day!”.

Just like his favorite player!

Steeler Nation, keep this little fella in your thoughts and prayers as he overcomes this “bump in the road”!
