Interview With Former NFL Player, International Song Artist, Ben Utecht

Ben played 6 seasons in the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts, and Cincinnati Bengals. He grew up a hockey fan, which is big in his home state of Minnesota. However, football was his best opportunity to play at the professional level. He went to the University of Minnesota where he excelled as a player. Destined for the 1st round of the NFL draft, an injury almost ended his pro aspirations. Tony Dungy met him at an event, and promised to take a shot on him. He fulfilled his promise and led to Ben eventually becoming a pro with the Colts. He won a Super Bowl with the Colts in 2006 and had an accomplished career. He started thinking of life after football near the end of his career and started his singing career while still playing. He is now a part of the international group “Reborn” with Mark Masri & Andre Venter, and have just released a new album which is available on iTunes.
