Get Your Popcorn Ready


Since walking away from the NFL sidelines, Tony Dungy has -- among other endeavors --counseled Michael Vick, landed a football commentator's gig on NBC and caught a bunch of his son's seven-on-seven games for Plant High.

Now, Dungy is set to star in what could be a memorable preseason film session for many local prep teams.

On Aug. 25, four bay theaters (and three others just outside the area) will show Tony Dungy's Red Zone '09, a one-night-only film featuring Dungy, pro football hall-of-famer Michael Irvin, hall-of-famer-to-be Peyton Manning and USC coach Pete Carroll, among others.

According to a promotional release, the film "will engage and motivate high school football players as well as give them unprecedented access to professional coaches and players who will present inside tips on football, the keys to winning at any position, and discuss the importance of hard work, team building, conditioning, skills development and mental toughness."

This strikes me as a wonderful idea and I hope as many families in the Tampa Bay area go out to see this film session as possible. Coach Dungy is a man I truly admire and it always seemed like the lessons he taught were applicable to life in general. I certainly will make every effort to be in attendance.
