Ben Roethlisberger has managed to find a woman more attracted to his stat sheet than his rap sheet: Ashley Harlan has agreed to marry Pittsburth Steelers quarterback.
The engagement has been confirmed by The New Castle News, Harlan’s hometown paper. It states that the proposal took place over Christmas and that Roethlisberger’s agent has advised his client not to discuss his personal life with the media.
We can understand why.
On two occasions over the last few years, Roethlisberger has been accused of sexual assault. He’s admitted that he used poor judgment, but says he never forced anyone to have sex against her will. No charges were ever brought about the All-Pro, but the NFL suspended him for a quarter of this season.
Harlan was a volleyball, basketball and softball star at Laurel High School. She played softball at St. Francis University of Loretto and earned a Master’s in physician assistant science in 2009.
She works in cardiac surgery department of Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh.
