If Ben Roethlisberger is engaged to be married, he doesn't want to talk about it. But a lot of other people do.
The social media have been all a-Twitter with congratulations for the Steelers quarterback, who purportedly popped the question to a young woman from Hickory, Lawrence County, over the Christmas holidays.
Asked point blank today if he was engaged, Mr. Roethlisberger declined to answer, except to say he wouldn't talk about his private life.
The young woman is being named on blogs and Tweets, but Post-Gazette attempts to reach her have not yet succeeded.
Information developed by the newspaper shows her as a graduate of Laurel High School, where she was a softball star, and a 2008 graduate of St. Francis University in Loretto, Cambria County, with a bachelor's degree in health science, and, a year later, a master's of physicians assistant.
