Congratulations to Warrick Dunn who is the recipient of the Walter Camp Football Foundation’s 2016 “Man of the Year” award. The Walter Camp “Man of the Year” award honors an individual who has been closely associated with the game of football as a player, coach or close attendant to the game. He must have attained a measure of success and been a leader in his chosen profession. He must have contributed to the public service for the benefit of his community, country and his fellow man. He must have an impeccable reputation for integrity and must be dedicated to our American Heritage and the philosophy of Walter Camp.
Dunn joins a distinguished list of former “Man of the Year” winners, including Roger Staubach (Navy), Gale Sayers (Kansas), Dick Butkus (Illinois), John Elway (Stanford), Jerome Bettis (Notre Dame), and last year’s recipients Fred Biletnikoff (Florida State) and Joe Andruzzi (Southern Connecticut).
Warrick Dunn, who has been a tremendous role model both during and after his 12 year NFL career, was named this month as the Walter Camp “Man of the Year” for his charitable activities in the community. His Warrick Dunn Family Fund, a public charity serving single parent families in the southeast portion of the country, has rewarded more than 145 homes to single mothers and their families since 1997.
