Vince Lombardi (Brooklyn, New York, 1913 – Washington, D.C. 1970) (Italian parents), was an American football coach. He was the head coach of the Green Bay Packers of the NFL from 1959-67, and of the Washington Redskins for the 1969 season. He was one of football's most accomplished and respected coaches.

Lombardi won five league championships during his 9 years as a coach. He began his career as a professional football coach in 1954 for the NFL's New York Giants.

The Vince Lombardi Trophy is given every year since 1970 to the winner of the Super Bowl by the NFL.

Vince was raised in the Catholic faith and studied the priesthood for two years before transferring to St. Francis Preparatory High School, where he became a star fullback on the football team. [1]
