Tony Dungy's Influence on Michael Vick's Life

Even if you're not a sports fan, you may have heard by now that Michael Vick, the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback who served time for the "federal charge of bankrolling a dogfighting operation," has a new contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. What you may not have heard is that the NFL laid out a plan for Vick's rehabilitation by arranging for him to have a mentor, a man of impeccable character to help him along. That man is Tony Dungy.

Read full story at the African-American Books Examiner and also see a preview of Michael Vick's 60 Minutes interview with James Brown.

I hope he heeds the advice--and example--of Mr. Dungy. Tony Dungy is a class act all the way and we Hoosiers will really miss him.
