It appears as though Ben Roethlisberger has calmed his Big Ben ways. The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback who just this past April was accused of sexually assaulting an under age girl is reportedly engaged. The lucky or unlucky lady is Ashley Harlan, who graduated from St. Francis College in 2008. The engagement happened over the holiday, and the couple plan to marry in July.
Roethlisberger started off the season with a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, and now him and Pittsburgh Steelers prepare for the playoffs. When talking to reporters about the upcoming game, Big Ben neither confirmed or denied his rumored engagement, “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.”
The Steelers have a bye the first round of the playoffs… no word if the Future Mrs. Harlan will be cheering on Roethlisberger in the stands.
