In his book, Quiet Strength: the Principles, Practices & Priorities of a Winning Life, Tony Dungy said he thought his skills and talents were good enough to get him immediately into the NFL. He was disappointed when it did not happen. “I was in shock after not being drafted into the NFL. Something about this didn’t seem fair. It didn’t seem right. I was numb. Devastated. I prayed, ‘God, I can’t believe it. Help me figure out what I’m supposed to do now’.”
Dungy did not let disappointment paralyze him. While he may never have achieved greatness on the football field, he made history on the sidelines. His is the first African American head coach to lead his team to a Super Bowl victory. --Jim L. Wilson & Ev Hardee
