Son of Tony Dungy: suicide

According to this report, it has been confirmed by Tampa Bay police that 18 year-old James Dungy, son of Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy, has been confirmed as dead, probably from suicide. A few more details here.

What an incredibly sad thing to happen to a young man and his father, one of the most decent people on the planet.
Quite simply, Coach Dungy loves being a dad, and says a good friend gave him some very important advice years ago, that he still tries to live by. The advice is this: fathers need to cherish whatever stage their children are in, instead of wishing for the next one to hurry up and get here… because before you know it, that stage will be over, never to return again.
