Kick off Harvard-Yale weekend at Jillian’s Lucky Strike Social Boston for a night of bowling, music, drinks, food, prizes, networking, and more to benefit The Benson M. Abercrombie '21 Fund. Named in honor of Ben Abercrombie, who suffered a serious cervical injury while making his Harvard football debut at the University of Rhode Island on September 16, 2017, the Abercrombie Fund provides support to the Abercrombie family and any future Harvard undergraduate student-athlete who incurs a severe or catastrophic injury while competing for the Crimson while enrolled in Harvard College.

About Ben Abercrombie

Our teammate, Ben Abercrombie, earned a spot at Harvard after dominating both in the classroom and on the field at Hoover High School, in Hoover Alabama. Ben was a two-sport star in football and baseball, helping the Buccaneers win Alabama 7A State Championships in both sports (football in 2014 & 2016, baseball in 2017). He was selected All-State first team at the end of his senior year. Upon arriving at Harvard, Ben quickly became one of the most respected and talented players on the football field and was the only first year on the defensive side of the ball to make the travel squad for season opener at the University of Rhode Island. In his collegiate debut, Ben made a tackle that resulted in a catastrophic spinal injury and caused him to lose mobility and feeling throughout his body. Ben continues to fight day in and day out. With Ben’s determination, the support of those that love him, and prayer, we believe that Ben will one day make a strong recovery. Click here to read Ben's full story.
