While Ben Roethlisberger and some of his Pittsburgh Steelers teammates have been enjoying time together at his lake house in Georgia, it seems they have also had a chance to do some training as well.
In previous years, Roethlisberger had used the training facilities at the University of Georgia for these offseason sessions when at his lake house, but this time around, Big Ben was able to find somewhere a little closer to home to accommodate him and his teammates. Using a brand new practice field made especially for them by the kind people at Reynolds Lake Oconee golf club, the group was able to hold a workout at a place that would figure to be just a short boat ride away from Roethlisberger’s lake house.
Nicknamed Heinz Field South, credit for the field belongs to course Assistant Superintendent Justin Miller and 2nd Assistant Superintendent Logan Larmour, with the later the one we have to thank for all the images of their fantastic creation.
So blessed/honored to have some of the best athletes in the world, practice on a track myself & @Justinrmiller12 helped create! It was fun turning our recreation field into what members now call “Heinz Field - South” Thanks @_BigBen7 for trusting us to get the job done! #Steelers pic.twitter.com/y4iBqUlwm9— Logan Larmour (@LarmourLogan) May 17, 2019
Given that Miller and Larmour must logically spend the bulk of their working lives making sure that the pristine courses at Lake Oconee always look their best, it is perhaps unsurprising to note how immaculate the 60-yard practice field looks. Roethlisberger was certainly appreciative of the efforts of his local golf club.
All the guys loved and appreciated the way you turned that field into "Heinz Field South"! So amazing. We loved being able to get good work in. Thank you both for the hard work that you put into it! -- Ben.— BigBen7.com (@_BigBen7) May 18, 2019
