Many of you undoubtedly remember Ben, a former member of HUMC, and his father Jeff Utecht, who was pastor of HUMC for many years. After Ben graduated from HHS in 1999, he went on to be 2003 Golden Gopher team captain and 2006 Super Bowl XLI Champion with the Indianapolis Colts. Utecht, now removed from his NFL career as a tight end due to traumatic brain injuries from multiple concussions, Ben has redefined himself again through pursuing another dream: becoming a successful artist in the world of music.
NFL coach Tony Dungy said this about Ben, “Ben Utecht is a talented football player. He started at tight end for my team, the Indianapolis Colts, in Super Bowl XLI and helped us beat the Chicago Bears,” says Dungy. “However, I always thought his real impact would be in music. Ben has a tremendous voice and a passion for music. I believe God is going to use his musical gift in a special way.”
Ben Utecht achieved football’s highest honor when his team the 2006 Indianapolis Colts won Super Bowl XLI.
Utecht just released his debut solo Album “Man Up” which is sure to impress. Utecht co-wrote an original song on his new solo album entitled “You Will Always Be My Girls” which deals with the fears of losing his family to brain disease.
Along with singing, Utecht is an established keynote speaker, author, actor, and national spokesperson for the American Brain Foundation, the foundation of the American Academy Of Neurology.
As a national spokesperson, advocate, and author for brain health, Utecht has made music and speaking his full-time job.
Join us on February 13th, to see Ben, listen to his music and be moved by his inspirational message.
