From touchdowns to the tango, Hines Ward (BSFCS ’98) proved he has winning moves. The former Bulldog and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver won the coveted mirrorball trophy on ABC’s season 12 of “Dancing with the Stars.” Ward and his partner, dancing pro Kym Johnson, competed in the final three against actress Kirstie Alley and singer/actress Chelsea Kane. The contestants performed three dances on the two-night finale, and Ward and Johnson scored 89 out of a possible 90 points from the judges. First place is determined based on a combination of judges’ scores and fan votes. Ward is the second NFL player to win the “Dancing with the Stars” championship.
