The Linc - Michael Vick Joins Dungy In Prison Outreach

New, comments

Vick visits prison and vows to continue outreach - NFL - Sporting News
Vick and former NFL coach Tony Dungy joined about 35 volunteers from Abe Brown Ministries in a visit to a Tampa-area prison Saturday. Vick shared his own experiences with them as well as the lessons he learned from his incarceration. Vick spoke to a group of about 1,000 current and soon-to-be-released inmates at Avon Park (Fla.) Correctional Institution. He said it was his first visit to a prison outside of his own stay in federal prison in Leavenworth, Kan. "It was very humbling and at the same time, a bit overwhelming. You really didn't know what to expect," Vick said. "Hopefully I can be an example to somebody. The thing that I was trying to get across is that we all can be instruments of change. That's something that I've been proactive about since I stepped out of prison and I'm enjoying every minute of it."
