Former Florida State athlete inducted to Humanitarian Hall of Fame

Former Florida State football player and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Warrick Dunn was inducted to the World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame in June. Dunn is entering his 12th NFL season and was honored for his work in assisting single-parents and their children realize the dream of home ownership through the Warrick Dunn Foundation.

“I’m truly honored to be inducted into the World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame. I try to follow my works from my mom’s heart and dreams,” said Dunn. The program has helped 78 single-parents and 205 children and dependents in Tampa and Tallahassee, Florida; Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Atlanta, Georgia by providing initial down payment funding and furnishings.

The World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame is located on the Boise State University campus in Idaho, recognizes individuals and organizations from the world of amateur and professional athletics who, through their humanitarian efforts, distinguish themselves as role models in the community.

Dunn also has participated on the ACC Buccaneers Alumni Council, a group of players assisting the local organizing committee with the ACC Football Championship.
