Ben Roethlisberger (born March 2, 1982), who was born and raised in Lima, Ohio, was a multi-sport athlete who played quarterback for the football team and point guard for the basketball team. He received an athletic scholarship to attend Miami University, where he played for the Miami RedHawks football team from 2001 to 2003. He set numerous school records and earned several accolades as a college quarterback. After being selected by the Steelers in the first round of the 2004 NFL Draft, Roethlisberger became the youngest Super Bowl-winning quarterback in NFL history when he led the Steelers to victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XL at age 23.
He has two Super Bowl championships (XL and XLIII), two Super Bowl MVP awards (XL and XLIII), three Pro Bowl selections, two AFC Championship victories (2005 and 2008), and holds many Steelers franchise records. During his first six years as a starter, Ben Roethlisberger helped lead Pittsburgh to a cumulative record of 57–21 (.731) while throwing 104 touchdowns, but had a tendency toward poor decision making that resulted in interceptions and fumbles.
