I'm sure you all remember the 5'9'' running back out of Florida State who played in Atlanta for six seasons. Warrick Dunn was one of the great runners in NFL history, and he is still involved with the Falcons today.
After winning Offensive Rookie of the Year, being elected to three Pro Bowls and rushing for over 10,000 yards in his career, Dunn overcame all the criticism about his size, and made a name for himself during his 12 NFL seasons.
A part owner of the franchise now, Dunn is still actively involved with football. But, football isn't the only aspect of his life that he's passionate about.
Dunn has his own foundation that works to provide opportunities to economically disadvantaged single parents. A true philanthropist, he is involved with multiple charities and volunteer organizations, and genuinely cares about those in his community.
I had the chance to speak with Warrick Dunn on Wednesday about a number of topics, including life after football, the business side of the game and even his current studies at Emory University.
