Orlando Seo Young Jung and his family live in a neighborhood near the Lions training facility.
It’s not hard to see why.
The family lives just off the main drag of downtown.
Seo Jung, 32, is one of the most popular Lions players and his Instagram page is a virtual hub of family photos, his son’s birthday and his favorite songs.
He also has a Facebook page filled with posts from teammates and the team he plays for.
He plays the guitar, which he says he learned on his own when he was 5.
“My favorite guitar is the U2,” he says.
“They’re the best guitar players of all time.
It has a great tone and a really nice sound.”
It’s easy to imagine a family life like that for a player who has been a staple in the Lions lineup since his rookie year.
In his first season, he played in just eight games before being traded to the Minnesota Vikings.
He had just two interceptions and nine tackles in 10 games before returning to the Lions in the middle of the season.
“He was a good pro,” says Lions coach Jim Caldwell.
“The guys around him saw the value of him.”
Young has continued to improve throughout his time in Minnesota.
He was named to the Pro Bowl after starting the year with four tackles and two passes defensed.
In 2018, Young was named an All-Pro.
He is considered one of two Lions with more than 1,000 career tackles.
Young is a star in the locker room.
“It’s the best experience you can have,” he said.
“You have the best coaches and teammates, so you just want to play hard.
I think everyone has the same goal: To be the best.”
Seo says he is enjoying the time he is having in Minnesota, but there is a lot to do.
“I’m still going to work on my craft.
I’m still working on my footwork,” he adds.
“Just working on getting better and making better decisions.”
Seos son, Kyeong-young, is in his fourth season with the Lions and has made it to the second round of the playoffs.
The Lions are scheduled to play in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday in Indianapolis.
He said he has learned so much from his father.
“We’re still going through some things together, but I feel like I’m a better player with him,” Seo said.
Young has a bright future ahead.
“There’s so much to be accomplished.
It doesn’t matter if it’s playing football or whatever it is, I just want it to be the most fun I can have and the best time I can be playing football,” he added.
“When I was younger, I didn’t know I had the talent.
Now, I’m going to do everything I can to be able to be a part of the team.”
