Born on June 11, 1913, Vince Lombardi led the Green Bay Packers to six divisional titles, five National Football League championships, and two Super Bowls during his nine-year tenure with the team.
On the 100th anniversary of his birth, ESPN has named Vince Lombardi the greatest coach in NFL history because of those accomplishments and his influence on the game.
“Winning is not a sometime thing, it is an all-the-time thing. You don’t do things right once in a while … you do them right all the time.”
More than a magnificent coach, Lombardi was a great teacher and leader. His exacting nature, charisma, and passion changed a struggling franchise.
Coach Lombardi said “the spirit, the will to win, and the will to excel are the things that endure.” His winning spirit endures, and that is why we celebrate Vince Lombardi at 100.
