In honor of Superbowl Sunday, I would like to take the time to highlight former football player and NFL coach, Tony Dungy.   He was the 1st  African American coach to win the Superbowl in 2007 when his Colts beat the Bears.  He was also the first coach to defeat all 32 NFL teams in four years to take a team to the Super Bowl.
