VIDEO: Ben Roethlisberger’s Final High School Game From 1999 is a Huge Throwback


Craving football while we're in the midst of the NFL offseason? Pittsburgh Steelers fans can go back and watch the final game of Ben Roethlisberger's high school career for a huge throwback to 1990's football.

Roethlisberger's Findlay High School fell to Grove City in the last game he played before committing to the University of Miami (Ohio) in February, 2000, which set the stage for his eventual NFL career.

Roethlisberger was Ohio's Division I Offensive Player of the Year in 1999, though he was the runner-up for Ohio's Mr. Football award, trailing eventual New England Patriot Bam Childress.

A multi-sport athlete that didn't play quarterback until his senior year, Big Ben set state records with 4,041 yards and 54 touchdowns, while he added 7 TDs on the ground.

That success didn't stop when he got to the pros, of course, and he's thrown for 60,348 yards and 396 touchdowns across 16 seasons with the Steelers.

Pittsburgh will hope to contend with Roethlisberger under center in 2021, but FanDuel Sportsbook's odds have them at just +3400 (17th in the NFL) to win the Super Bowl.
