Tony Dungy with his kids at the Clearwater Marine AquariumOn November 7th, Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Tony Dungy stopped by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium to speak to local kids and dads in the All Pro Dad program. Accompanying Dungy to the event was his daughter Jade, who is aged 8, and son Jordan, who is aged 9.
Over 550 people were in attendance as Tony Dungy spoke about the importance of families spending time together. The event began with dads being encouraged to get down on one knee and give their kids a big bear hug for 15 seconds.

In addition to Dungy’s speech, the “morning of fun” also featured a movie and a pizza party from Hungry Howie’s.

The purpose of Dungy’s visit to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and the All Pro Dad event was to encourage fathers to spend time with their kids. All Pro Dad was launched in 1997 with the help of Dungy. All Pro Dad is an innovative program designed to equip fathers with the moral and educational tools necessary to make them better fathers and role models, and to build character in their children and communities. All Pro Dad has 54 NFL spokesmen, regular events with NFL teams and 1,000 chapters. Visit for more information.

Tony Dungy was the head coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 1991 to 2001. Most recently, he led the Indianapolis Colts to Super Bowl victory in 2007.
