PITTSBURGH - Ben Roethlisberger no longer lists Findlay as his hometown and instead now "hails" from a town in Ohio that does not really exist.
Talk about trying to put your past behind you.
The quarterback enthusiastically called Findlay home since the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted him in 2004. But he has made a revision.
His hometown is now listed as Cory Rawson, Ohio, in the Steelers' media guide and all of their rosters, at Roethlisberger's request.
Why the change? Roethlisberger will only say that he did not actually live in Findlay, but went to Findlay High School. Rawson, Ohio, also in Hancock County, is 10 miles from Findlay. There is no Cory Rawson, Ohio, nor is there a Cory, Ohio, but there is a Mt. Cory which makes up part of the Cory-Rawson school district.
It may be yet another way, even if it is subtle, for Roethlisberger to try to make changes and move forward.
