An honor to be joined by former NFL All-Pro running back, Warrick Dunn, this week on “Tech of Sports.”
We all know what Warrick has done on and off the football field, but I talk with the former NFL-er at the PGA Tour Championship as he was a judge in the FedEx Junior Business Challenge. Think of this as a part 2 this week to the previous “TOS” with Rosa Santos.
Dunn is involved in many different business interests, so he was the perfect person to judge and give advice to these young competitors and entrepreneurs.
Dunn started Homes for the Holidays in 1997 during his rookie year with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The program is a tribute to his mother, Betty Smothers, a Baton Rouge police officer, who as a single-mother of six, worked tirelessly to achieve the American dream of owning her own home.
While working a second job as a security guard, she was ambushed and killed. Ms. Betty was never able to realize her dream.
Warrick Dunn, former all-pro running back and philanthropist, began Homes for the Holidays during his rookie season in the NFL to honor his late mother, Betty Smothers.
Since 1997, thousands of children and families have benefited from programs activated by NFL great Warrick Dunn.
