Hines Ward of the Pittsburgh Steelers has been selected to play in this year's Pro Bowl exhibition. The Pro Bowl will take place in Honolulu, Hawaii at the end of the regular season on February 3, 2003.

Ward is a half-Korean, half-African American football star, whose football roots began at the University of Georgia, where he was the star wide receiver. With his lightening speed (breaking 40 yards in 4.47 seconds), he has made his presence known in the NFL. But it is his humble and hard-working attitude that has earned the respect of his teammates, which he attributes to the virtue he has learned from his mother. Someday, Hines plans to visit South Korea with his mother, to Seoul, the city where he was born 24 years ago.
