More than any other football figure, Vince Lombardi came to define athletic excellence and a single-minded dedication that made his name synonymous with winning at all costs, often at the price of personal relationships.
Born in Brooklyn in 1913, Lombardi’s notorious grit and determination earned him a football scholarship in 1933, and enabled him to play a key role as one of Fordham University’s “Seven Blocks of Granite” on their nationally ranked teams. Following his college football career, and a stint as a teacher and coach at St. Cecilia in Englewood, New Jersey, Lombardi spent five years as an assistant at West Point, before he broke into the NFL with the New York Giants in a position similar to today’s offensive coordinator role. In a move that would alter the NFL landscape, Lombardi became head coach and general manager of the Green Bay Packers in 1959, employing an incredibly effective combination of grueling conditioning regimens and motivational philosophy. Lombardi led the Packers to NFL championships in 1961 and 1962, followed by an unprecedented three consecutive NFL championships from 1965 to 1967, and won the first two Super Bowls in 1966 and 1967.
