Warrick Dunn is an ex-NFL player who played for the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was 1997 Offensive Rookie of the Year and was a Pro Bowler in 1997, 2000, and 2005. He also won the 2004 Walter Camp Man of the Year Award that goes to a player that volunteers and does charity work. Dunn's foundation, is the Warrick Dunn Foundation.

They reward single parents with 5k in down payment assistance and home furnishings for reaching the American dream of home ownership. Here is our interview:
