Ward, a California native, played college football at Fresno State and Ottawa University before joining the NFL. He played for several teams during his seven-year career, including the New York Jets, New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Houston Texans.

During his time with the Giants, Ward was part of the team’s incredible run to win the 2007-08 Super Bowl, even though he missed the game due to a leg injury he got earlier in the season. He was known as the ‘Wind’ in the Giants’ ‘Earth, Wind, and Fire’ backfield because of his running style and laid-back personality.
