In Tony's 11-year career with the Kansas City Chiefs, he's broken a number of NFL records, including career touchdown catches by a tight end in 2007. Off the field, his résumé includes regular appearances on countless national and local TV programs and an appearance in the film Any Given Sunday . After his 1998 rookie season, the Kansas City Chief formed The Tony Gonzalez Foundation, which supports the Shadow Buddies Foundation and The Boys & Girls Clubs of America, where Tony is a member of the Hall of Fame. During the offseason, Tony hosts a youth football camp and lends his time to MVPSpot.com, where he gives out nutritional information for a healthy lifestyle. He has also published an autobiographical children's book, Catch and Connect .
"Competition can bring out the best in people," Tony says. "What I love about Oprah's Big Give is people are using that competitive edge to help others. I think that's cool, very cool."
