Big Ben's Youth Football Camp Opens

Nearly 500 children from all over the country converged at Mars High School for the Old Spice Ben Roethlisberger Football Camp.

After some warm-ups and basics on taking snaps and stances, it was time to get the footballs in the air.

Roethlisberger showed the kids some of his techniques.

"When he comes, he's very thorough, he wants to understand everything going on," Gregg Derbyshire, from ProCamps, said. "And if you saw today he makes his way around. We had 460 kids here and he wants to try to interact with all of them."

With just some of the basics down, it was time for them to have some real fun and Roethlisberger was spreading himself around as best he could.

"The thing that the kids enjoy is when he acts like a kid and that's what he does in those games when he's quarterbacking them," Derbyshire said.

"I never thought that would ever happen in my lifetime," said one young participant. "I was impressed."
