Famous professional football coach Vincent Thomas "Vince" Lombardi, born on June 11th, 1913, and died September 3rd, 1970.

This image was taken during his successful career as the head coach of the Green Bay Packers. During the 1960's, Vince Lombardi lead the Green Bay Packers to win three NFL Championships and two Super Bowls. He never had a losing season as a head coach in the NFL.

The Vince Lombardi trophy is awarded every year to the winning team in the NFL Super Bowl. It was officially renamed in 1970 in memory of legendary Green Bay Packers head coach Vince Lombardi after his sudden death from cancer and to commemorate his victories in the first two Super Bowls. Unlike the Stanley Cup, a new Vince Lombardi Trophy is made annually and stays with the victor.

In 1967, He received Fordham University’s highest honor, the Insignis Medal, for being a great teacher.
