AP:Ex-coach Tony Dungy shares message with prisoners

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Columbia, South Carolina--Tony Dungy stood before more than 1,700 prisoners Tuesday, sharing a smile and message of hope that has become his life's work.

The former NFL championship coach said he recently visited an inmate in Florida that he had ministered to nearly 10 years ago. The prisoner thanked Dungy for changing his mental and spiritual outlook.

"That," Dungy said, "was a bigger thrill for me than winning the Super Bowl."

Somehow wonderfully appropriate on Holy Week. Read it all.

Dungy is a real walk the walk kind of guy, I basically rooted for the Colts to win the Superbowl just because he was the coach.  Slithly OT, but not until Tiger Woods has someone like Tony is his life does he have a chance at recovery….
