A father-and-son breakfast group that Tony Dungy built is giving the grieving coach its full support.

All Pro Dads encourages fathers to be role models to their sons and daughters. Members say it's time to give back to the coach who helped showed them the way.

Mark Nicolet's football teammate at Hillsdale College died last January in an apparent suicide. Nicolet, a quarterback from Zionsville, wears a rubber band on his left wrist to remember.

"It made us do a little bit of thinking, about how valuable teammates are, teammates and friends,” he said.

Mark's father, Larry, started Zionsville's Dad's Day chapter. It brought men together with their sons for a monthly breakfast.

When Tony Dungy came to Indianapolis, he adopted the group. Dungy started All Pro Dads in Tampa, uniting fathers and their children.
