If you’re an NFL fan, then you know that Tony Dungy is one of the most selfless, compassionate personalities in all of the NFL world, and maybe even the sports world in general.
We’re talking about a legendary NFL coach who led his 2007 Indianapolis Colts team to a Super Bowl victory, helping Peyton Manning win his first ever title, and finished his coaching career as one of the winningest coaches in the league’s history, with a 139-69 overall record.
He’s also an analyst for the NFL as well, and is one of the most likeable personalities.
Even though Dungy has had a ton of success on the field, it’s his philanthropy work that truly puts him at the top.
More than building just good football players, he worked to build good men… on and off the field.
The man runs a youth mentoring program, called Mentors for Life, and has supported numerous charitable organizations over the years, like Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Club, the Prison Crusade Ministry, foster parenting organizations, and Family First.
And since his retirement from coaching, he’s also become an informal mentor to Michael Vick, who was at the top of his game before getting suspended from the league and arrested in 2007.
And to add to that long list?
Dungy was recently spotted, at what appears to be a super market somewhere, volunteering for the Salvation Army, ringing the bell and asking people for donations.
It’s a pretty awesome move, considered he’s one of the most well known faces in the NFL, yet he’s quietly setting aside his time to help out those who are struggling through the holidays.
