Pittsburgh Magazine piece on Hines Ward by Sean Conboy.

"Jerome Bettis, Levon Kirkland — those guys gave up a lot of their free time to give back in the community," Ward says. "I learned a lot from watching them. I'm going to stay in the light in the Pittsburgh communities. I want to give back to a city that’s given me so much."
"You know, I came into this league as a third-round guy, and now, people are debating whether or not I'm a Hall of Famer. I've caught 80-yard touchdowns. I ran with one of the fastest guys in the league, DeAngelo Hall, with one shoe on. To me, all I ever wanted when I left the game was for people to say, 'He was one hell of a football player.'"
