As a student at Findlay, Ohio's high school, Ben Roethlisberger developed into one of the most prolific quarterbacks in NCAA history. After starring as a freshman for the Miami RedHawks football team, he entered his sophomore season as one of the top candidates to win the starting job away from veteran John Bonamego. During that season, Roethlisberger led the RedHawks to an 8-1 record and was named both the team's MVP and its Newcomer of the Year. As a junior, he again assumed the role of starter after Bonamego was injured and went on to lead Miami to its first undefeated regular season (9-0) and its first playoff appearance. The RedHawks lost that game 21-14 to Toledo but still managed to finish with a 10-1 record. As a senior, Roethlisberger guided Miami to its second unbeaten regular season (10-0) and its second playoff appearance. However, this time they met Syracuse in the Gator Bowl and came up short as they fell 42-28.
He attended Miami University and was selected by the Steelers in the first round (11th overall) of the 2004 NFL Draft. Roethlisberger was named AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2004 and made his first Pro Bowl appearance in 2007. Roethlisberger, Ben.

Big Ben was named the most valuable player of the 2004 season when he helped lead his team to the best record in the league at 13-3. The Steelers lost their first game during the 2005 season against the Jacksonville Jaguars by a score of 24-10.

Roethlisberger did not start at quarterback until his senior year, when he was replaced by the coach's son, Ryan Hite.

The 6'5", 220-pound Roethlisberger led the school record setting offense that season and was named first team All-American by The NFL Draft Report and third team All-American by The NFL Football Encyclopedia.
He finished with 5,084 yards of total offense (3,418 passing, 1,666 rushing) and 51 touchdowns responsible for. He also had 12 interceptions as a passer. As a runner, he had 2,090 yards and 26 touchdowns.

During his career, Roethlisberger has been awarded multiple awards including AP NFL MVP, Sporting News NFL MVP, Walter Camp Award Winner, and Three Times First Team All-Pro. He is also the only player in NFL history with 200 or more touchdown passes and 10 or more interceptions in each of his first ten seasons.
