Legendary coach Don Shula (1930 – 2020) led the Miami Dolphins for 25 years. His teams appeared in six Super Bowls, winning the title game twice. He remains the winningest NFL coach in history. His 1972 Dolphins team went 17-0 and remains the only NFL team to go undefeated in a season. Shula was a serious Catholic who tried to attend Mass every day when possible.
