Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy, who coached James from 2002-05, shared this previously unheard story with NFL Network’s Steve Wyche prior to tonight’s ceremony.
“My second year in Indy, Edgerrin told me that there was a crack house that came into his neighborhood in Immokalee, Florida. He was so upset; he didn’t know what to do,” Dungy said. “He ended up buying the house kicking the people out, turning it into a play center, they call it “The Fun House” in Immokalee now where kids could hang out, get the dope out of the neighborhood, let the kids have some fun. No one ever heard that story but that’s Edgerrin James.”
