A teen when Mom died
Five young brothers and sisters
Dunn supported them
Pro football player with heart
Started running for his life
Written for Brian Strand’s Ekphrasis contest.
Former NFL running back Warrick Dunn not only managed to support his own family
but started building homes for other families when he played with the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers. In “Running for my Life” he describes how he later met face-to-face
with the man convicted of shooting and killing his mother Betty, a Baton Rouge,
Louisiana police officer.
