NOTE: “The night before the Panthers’ home playoff game against Dallas following the 2003 season, Mills gave a memorable speech to the team.
His plea to ‘Keep Pounding’ in an emotional speech before the Panthers’ victory over the Dallas Cowboys later became the name of a fund to sponsor cancer research programs.”
