Football Coaches

Printed By: Ashton-Potter (USA) Ltd
Printing Method: Lithographed

One of the most successful coaches in NFL history, Vince Lombardi became a national symbol of single-minded determination to win. Believing that “winning isn’t everything…but wanting to win is,” he embodied the ideals of honest-to-goodness hard work and reward.
 
Born in New York City, Lombardi graduated in 1936 from Fordham University where he was one of a group of linemen known as the “Seven Blocks of Granite.” He went on to study law, briefly played minor league professional football, and coached high school football before returning in 1947 to Fordham where he served as an assistant football coach until 1948. From 1949 to 1954 Lombardi served as coach for the U.S. Military Academy, and from 1954 to 1958 he coached offense for the New York Giants.
 
In 1959, he was hired as head coach for the Green Bay Packers – a team well acquainted with defeat. But his striking character aroused confidence in his players and reinforced a belief in the power to overcome obstacles. Lombardi coached the Packers from 1959 to 1968, during which time he led the team to six divisional championships, five NFL championships, and victories in the first and second Super Bowls. In 1971 he was inducted into the Football Hall of Fame.
