It was such an honor for me to play in the Big 33 Classic, given the tradition of the game and legacy of great players. I am excited to return now as the Honorary Chairman, to be involved again in something truly special.— Ben

The Big 33 Football Classic will be played on June 16th, 2012 at 7:00 PM at the Hersheypark Stadium.

Ben, who is a Big 33 alumnus and played in the 2000 Big 33 Football Classic, is the game’s Honorary Chairman.

In 2003, Ben led the Miami Red Hawks to an unbeaten record in the MAC, a No. 10 ranking in the Associated Press poll, and a 49-28 victory over Louisville in the 2003 GMAC Bowl.

His number was retired by the Red Hawks in 2007 – becoming only the third athlete in Miami football history to have his jersey number retired. It was the first time in 34 years Miami retired a football jersey number. Just last month, Ben was selected as one of six individuals to be inducted into the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame later this year.
