Ben Roethlisberger engaged to Ashley Harlan? Big Ben plays coy
Big Ben was asked point-blank Tuesday (Jan. 4) by KDKA in Pittsburgh about the rumors and he refused to talk about his lady love.
"Oh geez. Listen, there's always rumors out there about professional athletes, especially about me. You guys know that I am not going to talk about my own personal life, I don't do that. My one singular focus right now is on the playoffs, on football and trying to get to the Super Bowl. So, that's what my focus is right now," Big Ben tells reporter John Shumway.
According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Harlan is a 2008 graduate of Saint Francis University in Loretto, PA where she played softball and earned a Bachelor's degree in Health Science.
This would be a good step to Roethlisberger rehabbing his image, after his 2006 motorcycle accident where he was not wearing a helmet, the 2009 and 2010 sexual assault allegations brought against him and his 2010 six-game suspension from the NFL, which was eventually knocked down to four games.
The above pictures are not of Ashley Harlan. These are Facebook pictures posted of Big Ben several years ago. But they're just so much fun and no one can find a picture of Ashley, so we used them.
