Default Big Ben Holds Mini-Camp For Kids

http://www.wpxi.com/sports/11282556/detail.html

NEVILLE ISLAND, Pa. -- Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger hosted a minicamp for youngsters on Saturday at the Robert Morris Island Sports Center.

Thirty-three children won an essay contest on the benefits of hard work to get the chance to meet Big Ben, and even catch some passes from the Steelers star quarterback.

They also took part in sprints and a football field obstacle course.

Big Ben told Channel 11, "It's an opportunity to come out here and share some knowledge, some wisdom and some fun with these kids and share the game of football."

Roethlisberger also talked a little bit about the coaching change this year.

He didn't say much about Coach Bill Cowher's departure. But he is getting acquainted with new head coach Mike Tomlin.

Ben said, "Yeah, I've talked to him many times. I've been working out in there and had dinner with him and so we've been able to it down and talk about a lot of things."

This offseason has been pretty relaxed for Big Ben.

He followed his alma-mater, Miami of Ohio, during the team's run in the NCAA Tournament. Miami lost to Oregon by two points in the first round.

About his offseason, he also told Channel 11, "I've done a lot of traveling, golfing, watched my sister play basketball. A little bit of appearances like this with Sprint and football camps."

Roethlisberger now says his focus is on the upcoming season.

Yep...

This sounds like the PERFECT offseason for him. Rest, relax, have some fun, let the body heal, then work out and focus on the season.

I just gotta feeling... we will be seeing the Ben of 04 and 05.

when i read this thread title, i was just hoping the "kids" were s. holmes, n. washington and w. reid.

oh well

hey ben! forget about the children.

give south beach florida a call.... ask for santonio, and tell him to get his ass to pittsburgh, to start working on a championship.

do not pass go. do not collect $200.

Yes Ben, please avoid doing any of this wasteful community work with kids, because I am sure it will inhibit your ability to have a better season next year.

I do know what you are saying, tony. It would warm my heart to see Ben working out with his receivers, as well. Just don't think this has much to do with that.
