Default Roethlisberger Surprises Kids At Camp Tomlin

Youngsters attending Coach Mike Tomlin's youth football camp at Mars Area High School got a surprise visit from Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger today.

Throughout the week, Steelers players Heath Miller, Brett Keisel and Chris Hoke have spent time working with the campers at The Old Spice Coach Tomlin Football Camp.

Along with Steelers Linebacker James Harrison, Roethlisberger stopped by the campus to spend time with the kids on the final day of the camp.

For the last two years, Roethlisberger has led the camp; and earlier this week, Tomlin told KDKA that he fully expects the QB to be back at the helm next year.

While campers like Erick Taylor of Garfield have been enjoying their time with Coach Tomlin, some youngsters who attended the camp in previous years said they missed having Roethlisberger around.

"Ben used to play with us more," Bethany Carcaise of Illinois told KDKA on Monday. "He acted like a kid!"

"It's just weird," camper Ross Greece added. "Like Ben's a good guy and he does something weird like that -- just breaks some people's heart how it happened and stuff."

"I feel bad because I don't think he deserves to be put through this all the time," Carcaise added.

Steelers Tight End Heath Miller helped fill the void earlier this week. "You know, we'll all step in and pick up the slack for him."

"I know that Ben's looking forward to moving forward and he's excited about it," Miller continued. "As teammates we've got to be there for him and move forward as well."

Coach Tomlin, who brought his own 8- and 9-year-old sons to the camp, said he fully expects Ben to run the camp next year. "That is our full intention, absolutely. In the meanwhile, I get to babysit it and that's fun also. I might be back next year, too!"
