Tony Dungy meets with Decatur students

Posted: Updated:
DECATUR, Ga. -

A Super Bowl-winning coach inspired visited with students at a Decatur school on Monday.

Retired Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy met with eighth graders at Renfo Middle School.

Dungy made a point of telling students to set high goals for themselves and work hard to make their dreams a reality. He said that he learned from his parents, who were both educators.

"I realized I had so much help along the way in my career from teachers who believed in me, people around my community, other advisors," Dungy said. "Everybody needs just a little help to jump start it, so giving back to the community is important. It's something I always emphasize with my players. I think it's critical."

Dungy has teamed up with Comcast and the Atlanta Falcons to bring internet service to low income families. As part of Monday's visit, Comcast donated five laptop computers to Renfo Middle School.
