It’s a good look for Michael Vick to be leading by example:

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick will be active this fall, whether there is football or not. He was joined on Saturday by former NFL coach Tony Dungy and 35 volunteers from Tampa-area Abe Brown Ministries in visiting about 1,000 inmates at a prison in Avon Park, Fla.

“It was very humbling and at the same time, a bit overwhelming. You really didn’t know what to expect,” Vick told The Associated Press. “Hopefully I can be an example to somebody. The thing that I was trying to get across is that we all can be instruments of change. That’s something that I’ve been proactive about since I stepped out of prison and I’m enjoying every minute of it.”

Vick says it was his first visit to a correctional facility since he served a 23-month sentence in federal prison for bankrolling a dogfighting ring.

He is optimistic that there will be football next season. But even if there isn’t, Vick plans to continue to follow his Christian faith and give back to communities by visiting prisons with Dungy and on his own.
