Hines Ward

Hines E. Ward, Jr. (born March 8, 1976) is an American football player who currently plays the wide receiver position for the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers, where he is the longest-tenured current player on the team. He was voted MVP of Super Bowl XL. He played college football at the University of Georgia. Born in Seoul, South Korea to a Korean mother and an African American father, Ward grew up in the Atlanta area. He has become an advocate for the acceptance of biracial youths in South Korea. Ward was born in Seoul, South Korea, to an African American father, Hines Ward Sr., and Korean mother, Kim Young He. His family moved to Atlanta and East Point, Georgia when Hines Jr. was one, and Hines Sr. went to Germany to serve a tour of duty. The next year Hines' parents divorced, and after Hines Sr. convinced a family court that Kim could not raise Hines Jr. independently, because she did not speak English, Hines Jr. lived with his paternal grandmother Martha Ward until he was seven.
