PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Three Pittsburgh Steelers are going to the Pro Bowl.

James Harrison, Troy Polamalu and Maurkice Pouncey have been selected for the AFC team.

It’s a huge honor for Pouncey. He’s the first Steelers rookie since Kendrell Bell in 2002 and the first rookie offensive lineman from the team since 1956 to make the Pro Bowl, according to the Steelers.

Harrison will make his fourth appearance as a starter and Polamalu is making his sixth appearance.

The Pro Bowl will take place Jan. 30, 2011 in Honolulu, Hawaii. The game will air on FOX.
