Meet Warrick Dunn

Tampa Bay Buccaneer running back Warrick Dunn is only 5' 8" tall, but so what! "If you're faster than everyone on the field, you can overcome size with speed," he says.

Warrick was unstoppable last season. He rushed for 978 yards and earned Rookie of the Year honors.

Warrick is also unstoppable when it comes to helping others. He talks to students about the importance of education and has helped buy homes for low-income single moms.

Warrick is a small guy with a very big heart.
