Week 4 Post B

A quote that really stood out to me in section four was when Tony Dungy says; “Although we had spent our whole married life in the ultracompetitive world of professional football, Lauren and I had always tried to view it through God’s eyes. As much fun as it was to be winning, we tried not to get caught up in it. We knew that our family life and our faith walk were more important” (pg143). When Tony Dungy says this it really has an impact on the reader. As a reader this quote tells the audience that Tony believes that your walk of faith and family life are way more important that football. In this quote Tony is saying that even though life may seem perfect, and that your team is winning/doing great you should never forget what got you there. He is saying that even though winning may be great you shouldn’t get carried away with it, and forget the little things. You still need to continue your walk of faith, and family life is way more important that football. Coming from a greatly known National Football League coach like that is very inspiring. If Tony Dungy believes that, and has the time to do the little things with how busy his schedule is everybody should be able to do it.
