A first-team All-American tight end at Florida and a runner-up for the John Mackey Award in 2003, Troupe, a Florida-Georgia Hall of Famer, was selected 40th overall in the 2004 NFL Draft by the Tennessee Titans. He played five professional seasons for the Titans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders.
A Swainsboro, Georgia-native who also calls Augusta home, Troupe is a passionate advocate and volunteer, standing tall for people in need. Ben believes in expanding perspectives through exposure. He lives his life with a "least among us" mentality, focusing on improvement for all.
Ben is a daily sports radio host on the syndicated afternoon show "Three & Out" across multiple ESPN Radio affiliates. He is also a college football columnist for SouthernPigskin.com and, preparing for his upcoming Uncommon Tour, is an accomplished motivational speaker.
A football star, a media brand, a man of faith, a father and a son, Troupe, an advocate and a volunteer, is many things and many more to come. His Uncommon Tour, bold, challenging and stimulating, is an opportunity to channel his spirit, a chance to take it and, given Troupe's history, take it all the way. On the field, Troupe's determination made him a national name; off the field, it has helped him find his purpose. Though Troupe, the player, was well-known, Troupe, the person, is worth knowing. His outlook inspires.
Ben's history of volunteerism includes working with organizations like Make-A-Wish Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, St. Jude's Hospital, Shands Hospital, Read to America, Boys & Girls Club, NFL Ambassadors College Outreach Program, NFL Play 60, Men Reaching Men, Hearts for Heroes, Heads Up Football and USA Football.
