The article shares the experiences of Tony Dungy, coach of the football team Indianapolis Colts, whose 18-year-old son, James Dungy, died on December 22. He remembers talking to football player Trent Dilfer when his son died and saying that while he could do a lot of things but he could never have the kind of strength Dilfer showed on the death of his son. And Dilfer told Dungy at the time that he could if he had to because God's spirit would give him the strength and ability to do it. About the media, he says they were very supportive through the tragedy.
