Dungy book: In 2008, family received racist hate mail about son

The first racist hate letter arrived at the Dungy home shortly after Eric Dungy — son of the former Buccaneers head coach — enrolled at Plant High School in 2008. “The letter said Eric shouldn’t try out for the football team because too many blacks were coming to Plant and taking spots from the white players,” Lauren Dungy, Tony’s wife, wrote. “The anonymous writer threatened trouble for the entire family unless Eric left Plant immediately.” [Will Vragovic | tampabay.com, Photos: Times, AP Photo]
