Ben Roethlisberger Graduates College

OXFORD, Ohio (KDKA) – Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has won two Super Bowls and is adding to his list of achievements.

He now has a college degree.

The crowd cheered as his name was announced during Sunday’s graduation ceremony at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

He received his bachelor’s degree in education nine years after he left school early for the NFL.

Miami University shared their footage with KDKA-TV. Roethlisberger talked about what it meant for him to graduate.

“To me this is just as big, if not bigger, than winning the Super Bowl,” he said. “This is the Super Bowl of life if you ask me.”

Roethlisberger said he did not expect it to take him so long to graduate.

His wife, parents and grandmother attended the ceremony.

“I’m proud to not just say I’m an alum, but now I’m a graduate,” Roethlisberger said. “And it’s an awesome honor. It’s great for me, I think it’s great for the university because I’m proud of this school, I’m proud of Miami, the ‘M’ – not just for football now, I can be proud of the education that I’ve received here.”
