On this Fourth of July, we, meaning myself, Lauren, and our four youngest children, are on our way to South Africa. We left Atlanta at 8 p.m. Friday night. We’ve flown 11 hours, so far, and still have five hours to go. It has been long, but our kids have done surprisingly well. Lauren packed […]
I’ve always loved summer vacation. When I was a child growing up in Michigan, both of my parents were teachers and had that time off. The Dungy family did a lot together during those months, and it was wonderful-especially when I got to go fishing with my dad. On one fishing outing with him and […]
June 21, 2009 was Father’s Day, and also my parents’ wedding anniversary. So this was an even more special Father’s Day because it reminded me that this was the day, 56 years ago, that my family actually began. This year, we didn’t do anything unique as a family, but we did some things that we […]
My father, Wilbur Dungy, passed in 2004. He was a teacher, a scientist, and my friend. I still miss him, and still appreciate him so much for the things he taught me, the way he raised me, and the time he spent with me. My father was a man of God, and someone I strive […]

Lauren and I arrived Sunday at Yellowstone National Park. We’re vacationing with three other couples; it’s something we’ve talked about doing for years, and we are finally getting the chance. We flew from Tampa into Bozeman, Montana, and drove from Bozeman to the north entrance of Yellowstone. The drive was incredible. There was so much […]
I’ve often talked about the positive influence my parents had on me, and now I’d like to tell you about the two men who made such a difference in my parents’ lives-my grandfathers.
Where were you on April 25th and 26th of this year? I know where I wasn’t. I wasn’t in a draft war room for the first time in a long time.
I felt like I was in a time machine. I was hosting an All Pro Dad Father & Kids Experience at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa at the end of April. Before the event I did some media interviews in the Bucs locker room. The Bucs locker room; I had not been in there since […]
