In honor of the 50th super-bowl, the National Football League is using theme of gold. NFL Stadiums across the country have a golden 50-yard line marker, team logos have golden trim on fan merchandise, and the pro bowl uniforms will have a gold trim on them.
The biggest thing though is that the NFL will be giving away a golden football to every high school in the country that has produced a player or coach that has appeared in a Super Bowl. Each player will personally deliver their football to the high school they attended and played for.
Peyton and Eli Manning, Aaron Rodger, and many other players have already delivered their footballs. Findlay High School has produced a super bowl player, Ben Roethlisberger. FHS has yet to receive a golden football, and people are starting to wonder, “Ben, where’s the football?”
A reason we might not still have the football is for what happened back in 2012. Back in 2012 Ben was being sued for alleged rape charges from in 2008. The Courier around this time also posted a story about Ben. In the story, friends, coaches and teammates said how he never treated women that well even back in high school. After Ben read this story he was angry with Findlay and he even came out and said that he didn’t live in Findlay but in Cory Rawson, which isn’t even a real town.
Roethlisberger has not said anything about whom he will be giving the football to. With still some time yet before super bowl 50 arrives, there is still time for him to make a choice.
