    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Former Hoosier (1999-02) and current San Diego offensive guard Kris Dielman will play in his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl on Sunday evening. Dielman will start for the AFC in the annual All-Star Game in Honolulu. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. ET and the game will be televised on FOX.

    The eight-year veteran started all 15 games in which he appeared for the league's top offense in 2010. Dielman has played all eight of his seasons with the Chargers and has started 91 times.

    A two-time honorable mention All-Big Ten at IU, Dielman played both tight end and defensive tackle. He was named the team's most valuable player in 2002 after leading the Hoosiers with five sacks and 14 tackles for loss.

    The Goshen, Ind., native finished his career with 62 tackles in 23 games with the defense. Dielman posted 26 catches for 361 yards and five touchdowns at tight end.
