Born in Brooklyn in New York, USA Vince Lombardi was a superb football player, coach plus executive in the NFL who did amazingly and was spoken in high regards by many for his contributions.
As the head coach of the Green Bay Packers team he was simply unstoppable and brought great laurels for his team. It is great to mention that Vince Lombardi helped his team Green Bay Packers to win three NFL Championships plus two super bowls in the 1960’s.
It was really sad that he passed away in the year 1970 at the age of just 57. It must be noted that at the New Jersey based Saint Cecilia High School he was first an assistant coach but later grew to become the head coach for Green bay Packers team from 1959 till 1967. It is important to note that he was also head coach for Washington Redskins team in the year 1969.
It is brought out that his pre-game address to his team mates during super bowl 2 was sensational and was highly effective. This speech was given by Vince Lombardi in the year 1968 and it was marvellous. His words such as ‘’just hit’’, ‘’just run’’, ’’just block’’, ’’just tackle’’ had profound effect on the players. It was great that his team Green Bay Packers won the match convincingly and was spoken highly by many. Splendid Vince Lombardi!!
