Super Build

Habitat for Humanity (Pinellas and Hillsborough) is planning some great events to coincide with Super Bowl week. A recent press conference highlighted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' support and participation in these events. Two homes will be built the week before the super bowl and one home will be built on the day of the Super Bowl. That's right, a house will be built in one day. That house will be shipped to a lucky recipient in the city of the team that wins the Super Bowl. You can see the St. Petersburg Times article here.

Warrick Dunn, Shelton Quarles, and Doug Williams were on hand to symbolically raise the first wall of the Super Build home.

Doug Williams responds to a few cracks about his age.

Doug and Warrick show it's all in good fun.

The players show their skills with a hammer. Warrick was careful not to hurt himself, as audience members reminded him he had a game coming up. The future homeowners watch as the process begins.

Enough's time for the future homeowners to pitch in and raise the wall.

Warrick fields questions from reporters. Wow, I guess you would get used to this after a while?

Shelton autographs some T-shirts.
The players pose with the future homeowners.

This really is a great event. Hopefully lots of press will pick up on it while they are in town for the big game. All of the Super Build t-shirts have the number "59" on the back. That represents the donation required to sponsor a squre foot of living space in the habitat home. Learn more at Shelton Quarles is involved through his Impact Foundation. Visit for more information.
