Family First, a national non-profit organization headquartered in Tampa, launched All Pro Dad with the help of Dungy, in 1997. At the June 6 event, fathers will get parenting tips while they and their children visit interactive, football-themed learning stations located on the field.  New topics and activities will also be introduced this year.

“As a father of six children myself, I hope to encourage dads to put their children and their family first,” stated Dungy.

Dungy played three seasons in the NFL with the Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco 49ers followed by a lengthy career as an assistant coach. He then served two stints as a NFL head coach with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1996-2001) and the Indianapolis Colts (2002-08). He became the first African American head coach to win a Super Bowl when he guided the Colts to a Super Bowl XLI victory in the 2006 season.
